Ethnic cushion style


I love traveling and have always loved the idea of bringing something back from my travels and integrating it into my home. 

I always make time to find those local fabric markets, not just for that holiday experience, but to bring something back that I know I would struggle to source back home in Australia.

Cushion cover fabric is one of the easiest things to look for at these markets.

If you keep your sofa base fabric neutral you can add a wild mix of colour, texture and patterns with cushions made from pieces of handcrafted textiles, old rugs and fabrics from your travels.

These cushions have a handcrafted South American vibe!
Pairing cushions with a rug also helps anchor the room or area.

These cushions are made out of old ponchos from Peru!
What a great way to remind you of your holidays and add a splash of colour and decorating confidence to your room.

Have fun.
