A Scattering of cushions




I was looking for the collective noun for a group of cushions.
Unable to find one, I gave up and made one up! I was in the mood for some re-arranging, sofa cushions re-arranging...




A 'scattering' it is then and so very appropriate don't you think ? I even made myself laugh at that one....!

I love colour as you have probably noticed? but I find you cannot highlight colours without using neutrals to showcase them.

For example, I use white walls throughout our house and as you can see with the scattering of cushions below. For every bright colour cushion I added, there was a neutral cushion to fill up the spaces...




Add in a blanket or two, maybe a vintage cushion, 5 handmade ones and two plain pure wool tweedy ones...Shed a bit of light on the subject and 'Bob's your uncle! as they say.




The pic above is what I settled on.
I love scattering scatter cushions! is anyone else here a fan, do you think its a female thing?
I made the tapestry cushions in the picture you can read about them or make some for yourself; Here
The plain wool tweedy* ones can be bought from Sofa Sofa;
