I’ve been having a bit of a love affair with cushions lately.
I think because we’re still in ‘renovating mode’ I’ve looked for ways I can indulge in the fancy-shamancy decorating stage that I’m always looking ahead to. And cushions, I think, offer a way into that whilst not really affecting any major decorating plans. After all, we still have a bed and a couch which aren’t pretty much the only areas currently not disturbed by the construction – and you can never have too many cushions piled on those can you? 😉
This is the latest addition to our home, and for me, it’s a bit of a shocking one.
Since the dawn of time, there has been a pink ban in our house. I think it stems from my severe tomboy days where anything remotely girly would be followed by me making that yucky sicky noise that little girls do when you suggest that they might have a boyfriend or something. I guess the pink thing followed me into adulthood. But when I saw this little number from Cushions Online I definitely changed my mind.
It’s a real feature cushion if I ever did see one. It’s got that gorgeous squishy crunch that you only get in really good quality pillows and I love how it feels indestructible yet like I just want to cuddle up to it and take a nap. I think the patterns are so cutesy and in the hot pink add a bit of fun to what is actually a bit of a grown-up cushion. We all have some of those naf pillows in the house, where we’ve bought them on a whim but really they’re flat as a pancake and just gathering dust. Or in my case, collecting stains of brown as I keep accidentally sitting on chocolate and then sitting on our cushions. Oops.
For the time being this lovely new addition is going to sit pride and place on our bed. But, I have a vision for it’s future. Once we have our guest bedroom ready to decorate, it’s going to be all neutral. Probably grey walls (my favourite alternative to the overused and overrated Manila), some sort of beige/brown carpet (maybe even a wooden floor of some kind if I’m not traumatised by our floorboards) with fresh clean white sheets. And then I’m going to go overboard on colours when it comes to accessories. I’m going to use my indecisiveness for good, and make the guest bedroom a rainbow room of colour. This small cushion will kickstart that process. Now, if we could only get those walls plastered so we can crack on with my plans!
What do you think? Do you like my pick?
