“Why do you need so many cushions?”

If we had R1 for every “why do you need so many cushions?” … we would be floating in the Bahama’s on our Yacht sipping Mojito’s. There is no such thing as too many scatters (ok, maybe there is but you know what we mean).

So, instead of us sharing a self-help podcast of how to control your (and our) addiction to scatter cushions, we are sharing ways of how to mix and match, and make the most of, your scatter investments:

Mix n Match Colours
  • Add some depth to a neutral colored room by incorporating brightly colored scatter cushions.
  • Play around with scatters in different tones – if you already have cushions on your sofa / beds (e.g. blue) compliment them with scatters in tones of pastel blues, royal blues or navy blues.
Mix n Match Prints

If you like animal or floral-print scatter cushions – make sure that one or two of the colours within the print pick up existing colours in your space.

Mix n Match Textures

Mix textures fearlessly – who wrote a rule that says you cannot pair velvet with linen or solid fabric scatters with embroidered scatters?

Mix n Match Lines + Shapes

Create a visual juxtaposition using your scatters. For example, mix horizontal lines and square shapes with vertical lines and round shapes.

Mix n Match Placement
  • Play around with the orientation of current cushions to sneakily update the space.
  • Play around with placements of 60×60’s and 40x40s and oblong cushions.
  • Avoid placing cushions of the same size together – it can look a little too strict and formal.
  • Place 2 solid coloured scatters behind 2-toned scatters to create fabulous depth.
