How to Style Cushions at Home as a Maximalist

How to Style Cushions at Home as a Maximalist

Styling your chome is a great way to showcase who you are and what makes you truly unique. Cushions are a quick and easy way to style any space. They can add a personal touch, making your room more welcoming by giving off a feeling of comfort.

Why is Cushion Styling Important?

Cushions are just as important to your home as furniture or wall decor. They can make a statement in any room, and they're so versatile that they're easy to style and change.  

    With this guide, you will be able to style almost any type of cushion, from the most simple pillows to the largest, most extravagant ones. And with a little bit of imagination and a few key pieces, you can create the perfect look for your home.


    Colour is Key

    Colour is key to styling cushions

    The best way to set the tone for any space is by choosing the right colour palette. When styling a cushion, you should go with no more than three different colours. For the first colour scheme determine which colour(s) you want to be the space's focal point. It doesn't necessarily have to be your favourite colour (although it can be), but instead, what will create the most dramatic effect in your space.

    It's also important to choose a more neutral tone, which will be used to connect your focal colours and help add depth to the space. At Victoria Jane we have added our Si Belle collection accent cushion range to mix and match with our bolder Victoria Jane cushions.

    Go with the Traditional

    Pattern Cushion Mix and Match

    As much as you want to be different and daring, there are some classic styles that have been around for a good reason. These are things that have worked for years and can look just as good in your home. For example, cushions with geometric designs were very popular in the 70s, but you can definitely get away with keeping them in your space even if you're going for a contemporary, sleek look.


    Don't be Afraid to Mix and Match

    One of the most memorable ways to style your cushions is by putting together unexpected elements that fit well together but wouldn't necessarily go together in anyone else's space. 

    A way you can do that is by mixing and matching the colours, patterns, and objects that are special to you.

    Don't feel like you have to fill your entire space with overstuffed pillows. Sometimes, having just one small maximalist accent cushion is enough to make a huge impact. Use it to create the focal point of your room, and make sure that everything else you put in is complimentary. You can try different accent pillows on different couches or even change them up every day to give your room a whole new aesthetic.


    Consider Functionality

    Accent pillows are great for adding some style to your living area, but they also serve a very practical purpose. They give you something to lean on while you're sitting on the couch or something to rest your elbows on when you're leaning against the desk. A good cushion can help make any place even more comfortable, so make sure that it works well in addition to looking good.


    Choose the Right Cushion Size

    If you have a larger space, you don't want to fill it up with large pillows that take up much more room than they need to. Instead, look for pillows that won't dominate the space and will easily fit in with your existing furniture. The goal is to create a space that's balanced and not too busy.

    If you have a smaller space, on the other hand, you want to make sure that nothing looks cramped or too crowded. Oversized, overstuffed pillows can make your space look smaller than it actually is, so be sure to choose something proportional to the size of the room. Our most preferred cushion by our tribe is 45 x 45 cm with feather inner.


    Cushions can be the perfect addition to any room that's looking for a little extra dazzle and character. The best way to pick the perfect cushion is to think about what you want your space to look like, in addition to what elements are already there.

    Make sure you choose something that looks great while also being comfortable, and you'll be ready to enjoy the style boost that a new cushion can give you.
