Home decoration can be a hobby or a job for you, but regardless of what it is, you know that every single detail can make the difference. In the end, every minor thing in the room you are about to decorate contributes to the aspect of the entire room and it can be extremely important. From the colour of the walls to what is put on them to the colour and texture of your carpet, everything matters.
Cushions can be an amazing choice when it comes to changing the aspect of a room. If you have a room in which the furniture is simplistic (white, cream or any other colour), you will need to add a bit of colour and style to it and cushions can participate in this. Even more, you can use cushions in almost every single one of your rooms (even in your kitchen, if you get a bit creative).
The “Leftover” Cushion
If you are like most of the women out there, then you surely have a lot of clothes you do not actually wear any longer. However, you may be attached to them because you like their materials or their colours and if that is so, then you should definitely learn the fact that you can easily re-purpose them. Simply cut pieces of any kind of shape you may like out of the old clothes you like and patch them together using a sewing machine or manually. Making cushion covers is very easy, but you will need to take the measures of your cushions and add a bit more on each side.
The “Rosy” Cushion
You can repurpose old clothes or, if you want to, you can use new materials for this kind of cushion. Also, you can make it in almost any colour you want and you can actually allow your imagination to run wild with this. The principle is simple: use fringes of the materials you have chosen and braid them together. Then, create a spiral in the centre of the pillow using this braid and sew it in the essential spots. The result will be something that will look very “rosy” and which will give a whole new aspect to an old cushion.
The “Message” Cushion
This is probably the easiest type of cushion cover you can make and you will not even need a lot of things. You will need some sort of plain cushion cover (it can be white or any other colour, but do make sure that it is not very dark). Also, you will need some special transfer paper (which is actually quite affordable) and some pictures with designs or things that you think would look good in your room. Next, all you will need to do is follow the transfer paper instructions and transfer the image you have printed unto the cushion itself.
You can actually never have too many cushions and you can never be “too creative” when it comes to them. Let your imagination run wild, get some inspiration from your favourite things in life and get to work! You will achieve amazing things!
