Are Cushions Matching Your Sofa? Discard them!
Cushions are a great way to bring a pop of colour and texture to the living area. They are the ones which decide your creative approach towards home decor and when the cushions are exact same match with sofa, it looks like a mundane piece of furniture which is just lying in the living room. Pick the cushions that compliments the colour of the wall and is in some contrast with the sofa and see the living room come alive with minimal effort.
Patterns and Designs

Number Of Cushions On The Sofa
How many are too many and how much is too less! It is totally your choice that how many cushions you need.

If the living room is full of pattern and designs, the rug, carpet, table mat, table runner, wall decor all carry some sort of decorative pattern, then choose pastel palette for the cushions. 5t will counterbalance the patterns in a serene way. If the outlook of the living room is harmonious then you can pick some bright shades to add a pop of colour to the decor.
