The 3 best ways to style sofa cushions


If you’re looking for the best ways to style your cushions on your sofa – you have come to the right place!

Here are the 3 best ways to create magazine worthy styled sofa! This is the easiest way to prep your living room lounge to look like an interior designer has sprinkled their magic!


If you like to escape the chaos of everyday life, a cool, calm and co-ordinated look will give you the answer you are looking for! You will need 3 pairs or matching cushions to style this sofa look. The best way to achieve this look is to pick 3 colours which already feature in your room and which will compliment your sofa colour. Choose 2 large cushions, 2 medium cushions and 2 rectangular (or round) cushions.

The result is chic and well put together!


If you want something a bit more relaxed and casual with eclectic vibes – this second sofa cushion style will be right down your street.

Here we have a selection of 5 cushions which all work well together. They are all the same size which is key to a well styled sofa. If you were to have an array of different sizes you would end up with quite a messy result!

This look uses 4/5 different colours which all feature in each cushion. Mix plains with textures and patterns. Similar size pattern repeats will help keep the look together and instantly add some personalised style to your home!

This look is perfect if you have an obsession with cushions (like me!) and are drawn to a variety of different things!


The third look is all about layers, layers, layers.

This look works well with different tones from the same colour palette. The above image uses shimmering grey tones.

Different sizes, textures, shapes and tones all work together to create an expensive look! And easily done on a budget!

Take 5 (for a medium sized sofa) different cushions and arrange them in a tiered formation. The 2 largest cushions are at the back and they gradually fall down to a long rectangular cushion which pulls the whole look together!

Perfectly styled with a laid back vibe!!

If you ever want advice – drop me a line!
