Look­ing to give your home a quick re­fresh be­fore all your vis­i­tors ar­rive this Christ­mas? Look­ing to make your home a haven of loung­ing on those long sum­mer holiday af­ter­noons which aren’t too far away? Or maybe it’s even about keep­ing the kids comfy while they en­joy home hangs over their six-weeks’ break? What­ever your mo­tive, throw some new cush­ions into the mix this sum­mer. Cush­ions are un­doubt­edly king when it comes to jazz­ing up your home on a bud­get. They add per­son­al­ity, glam­our, fun and/or style de­pend­ing on your choice. Kylie Foy of Gold Coast-based The Coastal Cush­ion Com­pany says the Hamp­tons theme has al­ways been pop­u­lar in her on­line store, as has her Trop­i­cal range – es­pe­cially at this time in­clude San­torini Blue (coastal blue geo­met­ric pat­tern on linen, $24), Bev­er­ley Hills Beach (state­ment black palm tree on linen, $26). “In say­ing that, there is a good cross mix of sales across the Coastal, Trop­i­cal, Hamp­tons and Nau­ti­cal themes,” she says. “That’s what I love – pro­vid­ing such a va­ri­ety of op­tions for cus­tomers and let­ting them have fun with it.” And she’s not kid­ding on va­ri­ety. If an on-trend trop­i­cal leaf de­sign sounds too plain, maybe it’s a crab that’ll in­ject a smile into your home. Or one of dozens of pineap­ple de­signs. Or a gor­geous stan­dard-sized linen cov­ers with zip clo­sure, you can’t go wrong this sum­mer. cush­ions made with all nat­u­ral and or­ganic tex­tiles. eth­i­cal al­ter­na­tive for the mod­ern, fash­ion­able and eco-con­scious,” Weave and Wil­low’s Michelle and Jess say. “We love spread­ing the word about con­scious par­ent­ing and con­scious pur­chas­ing and we want to mo­ti­vate other fam­i­lies to think about ev­ery lit­tle step that goes into cre­at­ing a prod­uct - and the im­pacts on the en­vi­ron­ment, our­selves and the mak­ers.” are the per­fect ad­di­tion to any fam­ily home and cater to ba­bies, tod­dlers, teens and, of course, par­ents. “New­borns love to lay on them and have a play or - if you’re lucky - a lit­tle snooze! For par­ents, your tod­dlers. Teenagers love them to read, study and watch movies on and, as for par­ents, they are a per­fect place to have a cup of tea, read a mag­a­zine and watch TV. “Be­cause our cush­ions are made from all nat­u­ral tex­tiles, they are hy­poal­ler­genic and con­tain no nas­ties so are per­fectly safe and en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly for those eco-con­scious fam­i­lies.” And when it comes to uber-style on the GC, Kira & Kira’s cush­ions are al­ways right at the top of the list. To step out­side the box, lit­er­ally, why not chose round cush­ions in­stead of stan­dard squares? Kira & Kira’s range of roundies (var­i­ous de­signs, from $89) will have your lounge or oc­ca­sional chair scream­ing ‘Look at me!”. You can also pick up Kira Mi­ami store while you’re at it.
