Le Monde Home’s top cush­ion tips:

Paula Style - - Decor -

• Be­fore your makeover or build­ing pro­ject gets off the plans, ex­plore fab­ric col­lec­tions. When you find your sig­na­ture fab­ric, keep a swatch in your wal­let for quick ref­er­ence. Its mood, colour and style will help with many, many de­ci­sions.

• Con­tem­po­rary cush­ions are gen­er­ous – at Le Monde Home, most cush­ions are 60cm square.

• Al­ways choose feather in­ners. They’ll cost you more up­front, but can last up to 30 years.

• Make sure in­ners are slightly too big for cov­ers, so cush­ions are well­rounded. There’s noth­ing meaner than an un­der-stuffed cush­ion.

• Within a col­lec­tion of cush­ions, don’t be afraid to in­clude some­thing un­ex­pected, but still within the room’s colour pal­ette. It’s like the guy in the gor­geous suit wear­ing one red sock and one green. Fun!

• Vary tex­tures within your cush­ion col­lec­tion. For ex­am­ple, linen and leather are tex­tiles that work well to­gether.

• An­i­mal prints are sur­pris­ingly ac­com­mo­dat­ing. They can fit in al­most any­where, like a neu­tral.
