The other week I was just not feeling the ‘vibe’ in my lounge room. The room needed a change. I needed a change.
Before I had a chance to spiral into a lounge room funk, grab the credit card and hit the shops for a new look, I pulled out the sewing machine.
One of the easiest decorating changes that can be made in a lounge room is to add new throw cushions. They can change the whole feel of the room on the smallest of budgets.
I had bought some great material some time back in red and aqua. I loved the patterns and the colours were perfect for the lounge room. The red was already the highlighted colour in the room, but the blue could help tie in the tones of the photo canvas collage hung on the wall.
Before I really had time to think about it, I had run up 5 envelope cushions. You can read my tutorial on how to make these easy pillow slips here.
I like the two patterns and colours together. The aqua and white has really given the lounge a lift.
A few days after I threw together the new cushions, I was at Ikea and picked up this warm aqua throw for next to nothing. It should help to keep us cozy as the cooler weather sets in.
So on a little budget, with just a bit of time invested, I was able to give the lounge room (and myself) a lift.
