There's been a very strong home fashion trend for putting cushions
and throws on your bed
It's known as dressing your bed and has a lot of theatrical themes
involved. You've making a statement about a stylish comfortable bed,
although almost certainly you'll have to remove all the cushions before
you get in to bed.
Adding a throw and cushions can bring a bit of colour to a room and
is something that anyone can do. Look for the right colour by looking
at existing wallpaper and curtains and picking a colour that will go
with something already in the room rather than randomly throwing in
You'll find blankets and throws in almost every shop that sells bedding
and beds. if you buy cushions and throws at the same time you'll be
able to match them. If possible bring a colour swatch from home to check.
Whether you add a single cushion, or two or a whole raft of sizes and
different colours is up to you.
Look in catalogues and style magazines for ideas.
I'm a fan of shiny silky throws that look lovely and posh! BUt there's
a huge range out there - even Argos sell a wide range of throws! Check
it out - just search for throws at Argos.co.uk

Throws can be thrown across the bottom of the bed and folder neatly
over or thrown across a bottom corner of the bed.
Cut out pics from catalogues and magazines of cushion arrangements
that you like and it'll give you ideas on how to arrange them.
