Set your sights on a home update without a drop of paint? We’re a big fan of a well-placed scatter of cushions. This season, transform a tired sofa with graphic prints and punchy colour pops.

1. Art school

murmur dab cushion

Use zingy chartreuse to add a touch of sunshine to a muted scheme – we love the abstract feel of this embroidered option.

Murmur Dab Cushion £45.00

2. Forest finds

Dickins & Jones Maple Leaf Cushion

As the season shifts, florals can jar – look for stylised leaf motifs for quirky prints that will weather the transition. The perfect pairing of navy and mustard gives this charming cushion some serious retro appeal.

Dickins & Jones Maple Leaf Cushion £18.00

3. Check mate

Gray & Willow Painted Check Rust Cushion

Who said a Scandi-perfect scheme means white-washed walls and tonal greys? Check off this season’s biggest print trend and warm up a tired space - the rich rust tone is a lesson in understated colour.

Gray & Willow Painted Check Rust Cushion £25.00

4. Go east

Junipa Deshi Bird Print Cushion

Feminine without being fussy, this delicate bird print is lifted by a spring-fresh blush palette. We’ll layer ours with other decorative designs and tactile finishes inspired by the far east.

Junipa Deshi Bird Print Cushion £15.00

5. Mint condition

Harlequin Moriko Cushion

Grown-up graphic, jacquard weave and contrast piping – this cushion has it all. Plus, that candy-cool mint green reminds us of ice cream, summer weddings and vintage sweet shops. We’re sold.

Harlequin Moriko Cushion £50.00

6. Velvet touch

Christy Jaipur Cushion

Velvet? Check. Green? Check. Jewel tone? Check. This is one on-trend cushion. If you’re not sure about a velvet sofa (we’re currently lusting after blush pink), what better way to dip your toe into the trend?

Christy Jaipur Cushion £30.00

7. Fur focus

Linea Grey Faux Fur Cushion

Faux fur in light, neutral tones works just as well in the summer as it does in the colder months – just swap a heavy throw for a cushion. This sophisticated silver option will add some texture to a functional space.

Linea Grey Faux Fur Cushion £25.00

8. Top tassels

Linea Merida Tassle Cushion

Tassels have really put the swing into this summer, popping up on bags, shoes – and now cushions. Turn the heat up with this fiery red option – its splash of colour will do wonders for outdoor furniture.

Linea Merida Tassle Cushion £18.00
