You can make your bedroom irresistible using cushion covers, and you can draw inspiration from the beautiful earthy colours, textures and smells of fall.
Where To Find Inspiration This Fall
If you are looking to redecorate your bedroom in a whole new design and colour, cushions may well be the finishing touch, but it’s never too soon to start looking for inspiration. When shopping for wallpaper, paint or carpet, look at displays and shop windows for ideas for your new room, and when the time comes, you will know exactly what cushions you want.

Maybe you feel like spicing up what you already have; consider a rich, warm Autumn theme. Think bonfire night, crisp fallen leaves and harvest-time. Whilst out and about, keep an eye out for fabrics and accessories to give your bedroom a whole new lease of life!

You may choose to start with your existing bedding, curtains and carpet; look for tiny detail in them and be guided by this when choosing the colours of your cushions. In this way, you can choose colours that accentuate your existing colour scheme. Or you might prefer to be daring and go for a stunning contrast with your existing colour scheme. Dress your dull cushions with Yorkshire Linens which are my personal favorite.

Using Cushion Covers To Spice Up Your Bedroom
Be inspired by Autumn colours. Look for copper, fawn, chestnut and gold, and team these with sky blue, emerald, jade or pine green. As well as Autumnal colours, think about animals and insects; squirrels, beetles, acorns, oak tree leaves, spiky chestnut cases, shiny conkers; use your imagination to find some unique bedroom accessories with an Autumn theme. I love photographs and abstract pictures of Autumn leaves and trees; they look fantastic in matching frames on a plain bedroom wall. For nice abstract paintings my favorite spot is Abstract Art

Different Shapes, Sizes and Designs
Mix different shape cushions, square, long or rectangular cushions, or even star or animal shaped cushions. Mix plain cushions with stripes or polka dots; mix different fabrics and textiles such as silk, chenille, velvet, fleece. Look for cushions with appliqued animals or insects, buttons, strips of ribbon or tassels. Then look out for some quirky accessories, ornaments and picture frames to complement your theme.

How To Use Cushions Effectively
Cushions can be arranged in a regimental way to resemble a sophisticated hotel room, for example cool stripes and crisp, plain cushions. For a child’s room, choose bold, bright animal or insect themed cushions, or big deep fluffy cushions to look inviting and relaxing. Maybe you want to create a sensual ambience in your bedroom; consider red velvets, gold tassels, rich embroidery or satin. You will be surprised at how different your bed and bedroom look when you choose the right cushions with some thought and imagination.

Scatter cushions on window seats, chairs, armchairs and chests to create a comfortable or even opulent effect. Be imaginative, use cushions to stunning effect in the bedroom, then finish off with your chosen accessories to create a truly irresistible bedroom this fall.
