Life & Style Weekend - - MAGAZINE | HOME - WORDS: SHAYNNA BLAZE SELL­ING HOUSES AUSTRALIA

Up­dat­ing your soft fur­nish­ings is such a sim­ple and cost-ef­fec­tive way to change the whole look of your liv­ing space.

By soft fur­nish­ings, I’m talk­ing about bed linen, rugs and cush­ions. When cho­sen thought­fully, they can cre­ate in­stant im­pact.

Cush­ions are a great way to add a “pop” of colour or in­ject your per­son­al­ity. And they’re easy to change dur­ing dif­fer­ent sea­sons, or when new trends come in.

Your cush­ions don’t all need to match. As

long as you use colours that com­ple­ment each other, there’s a con­nec­tion.

You can use dif­fer­ent sizes, shapes, tex­tures es and fab­rics to cre­ate real depth and in­ter­est.

Cush­ions and throw rugs can also be a great way to tie into wall art or other fea­tures in the house, which gives a real co­he­sive feel.

Bed linen also adds to your at­mos­phere. Beau­ti­ful fab­ric can add tex­ture all by it­self. And if you tie in your cush­ions with your bed­ding, it’s a lovely way to bring a whole colour scheme to­gether.

Colour can make a big im­pact on your mood, so use your soft fur­nish­ings to cre­ate a peace­ful en­vi­ron­ment or en­hance the energy in your room. Watch Sell­ing Houses Australia on Foxtel.
