Decoration, in our opinion, is an underestimated stage of interior design, especially in Russia. Decor is not just pictures on the walls, vases on the shelves and a carpet on the floor, it is a certain set of items that is built in a clear compositional structure, it has its own order, its own rules, correctly integrated stylistically into the environment. The right decor brings life, soul, harmony to the interior, when "neither to reduce nor to add", everything is in its place. But the wrong choice of decor, or the wrong use of it can kill even the coolest design.
Decorative cushions will definitely make your home more comfortable, brighter and give completeness to the interior. First of all, you need to choose cushions, based on the style of the room. You should follow general principles:
Size. The ideal size of the main cushions is 60x60, 55x55 and 50x50 cm, and those that are smaller in size should be 45x45, 40x40, etc., it is better to use as a highlight. Place the biggest cushion at the back, and a cushion 5 cm smaller in front, you shouldn`t have big difference in levels, i.e. (60x60)+(55x55) or (50x50)+(45x45). Speaking of the size of cushions, we mean the size of the cover, but the inner pillow (filling) should be slightly larger, then it will keep its shape, and not spread out on the sofa. It is also possible to mix forms, then add to 1-2 square cushions of different shapes (rectangular, round, roller).
There is such a "secret formula" combination, which, in general, can be applied to the entire design as a whole. It looks like this: "Organic + Geometry + Scale + Texture". Depending on the style, it adapts a bit.
Organic. These are prints inspired by nature, floral, abstract. Not suitable in all styles, so it cannot be used where it is irrelevant.
Geometry. Cells, lines, repetitions. Perfectly balances the dynamics of organic print.
Scale. Vary the scale of the prints. If one pillow has a large print, then the other should have a much smaller print as a contrast, i.e. large leaves + small cell.
Texture. What is often forgotten, without it the composition looks flat and too sleek. The texture has a volume, reflects the material of the product, touching, you can feel it (fur, leather, knitted fabric, linen, velour, velvet, sequins).
Color. The palette of the composition should correspond to the main color concept of the room. If the color is in the cushion, it should be supported by other elements in the interior. The most basic option is one color scheme, then you play with a combination of shades and textures. Adding a print in the same colors will make the composition even more interesting. A little more complicated option when you mix 2 colors (basic and complementary) + print + texture, and the combination of different prints, textures and several colors will require practice, but nothing is impossible!
