Adding pattern and colour into your home is such a rewarding & uplifting thing to do. Add a simple splash of colour with a statement design cushion and suddenly you have created yourself eye candy for the sofa!

I’d love to share with you some photographs that I’ve taken of my Mairi Helena Velvet Feather Cushions and hope that it sparks  some ideas on how to style my cushions in your own home!

Mairi Helena Grey Tailor Thistle Velvet Cushion 

My Mairi Helena Grey Tailor Thistle velvet cushion takes inspiration from Scottish thistles, the meandering purple carpets of heather moors as well as a warm hint of yellow gorse. I therefore love to see my Grey Tailor Thistle cushion being styled alongside inviting yellows, warm camel greys and soft whites.

Mairi Helena Emerald Thistle Velvet Cushion 

My Mairi Helena Emerald Thistle cushion is inspired by the brilliant blue Inner Hebridean seas as well as sea harbour nets found along coast lines. I love seeing this burst of blue being set off against contrasting colours such as this beautiful orange of this stylish Jonathan Adler chair..

Mairi Helena Summer Thistle Velvet Cushion 

My Mairi Helena Summer Thistle cushion is inspired by the brilliant blue of the sea holly head, placed body against the dynamic colours of Summer for an instant uplifting glow. I just love seeing my Summer Thistle velvet cushion being styled next to rich teals and crisp calm neutrals.

Mairi helena Bronze Flush Thistle Velvet Cushion 

My Mairi Helena Bronze Flush Thistle velvet cushion takes inspiration fro the iconic teasel head found dancing along Scotland’s rustic coastlines, merged together with the inky splashes of the sea and rusty weatherbeaten pebble shores. I therefore love seeing this cushion placed with shades of greys, dark blues and accents in metallics such as golds, bronzes or coppers.
