Cushions are an essential item for a super stylish bed. But the trick is, how do you style them and how many is to many or too little. Well the magic number is 3 or any number under 6.
Mix cushions in different shapes, colours, designs and textures for an up to date trendy look
Stick to a two or three-tone colour palette, like the blue and pink in this playful yet stylish bedroom. It pulls the overall look together.
Mix organic, solid textures and graphic prints for depth. Play with the contrast of smooth and rough, soft and fuzzy. Go for faux fur, velvet, linen, knit wool and tasseled accents.
Try and use three different colours from your room, like the wall color, the rug, your bedding or your curtains
Mix and match three different patterns, but make sure that each pattern has at least one of the colours that are in the same colour family.
Keep in mind the scale of your patterns especially when following the Rule of Three because you do not want your patterns to compete with each other. Instead, go for patterns in three different scales, allowing one,your favourite, pattern to dominate.
Cushions are also a great way to contrast design elements or colours. Buy cushion covers that you can change seasonally.

- Fill matters: think about fill and how it will affect the appearance.A feather-and-down fill, has a soft and squishy feel, while foam and other synthetic fills are stiffer and much more affordable. Although they are not as luxe as the feather-and-down fill they will hold their shape better.
