  1. Using a neutral colour palette
  2. Adding a pop of colour through soft furnishings
  3. Introduce pattern

Once you have redecorated it’s time to think about the soft furnishings! Cushions, rugs, curtains, blinds and linens can dramatically enhance your scheme, so getting them right is crucial. Did you know Brewers sells fabric by the metre? If you’re a dab hand with a sewing machine head into store to browse our collections.

Here are 3 ways you can use soft furnishings in your scheme:


Using soft beiges, greys, creams and whites in your soft furnishings creates a timeless and classic look. Paired with a neutral colour scheme on your walls and woodwork, this can create a real warm and inviting feeling to your home that works together in perfect harmony. 

@welcome_to_no1 has achieved this beautifully in their bedroom by using neutral bedding and linens against Farrow & Ball’s Mouses Back. They have also introduced a neutral Morris & Co. print for an extra layer of classic sophistication!

Adding a Pop of Colour:

If you have used an understated colour on your walls, soft furnishings can be a great way to introduce a pop of colour into your space. If you use a complementary or harmonious colour to the colour you have used on the walls, it can look well put together. 

@plot_231 has used pops of orange in their bed runner and cushions against Little Greene’s Ho Ho Green which brightens the whole space in a really sophisticated way…not to mention the cutest coordinating cat!

Introducing Pattern:

Soft furnishings are one of the best ways to introduce pattern into your scheme…and there’s so much to choose from! Delve into the world of pattern and discover florals, stripes, spots or a more complex design to really elevate your space. 

@fairlightsandolivetree have introduced a cute ditsy floral print against Farrow & Ball’s Green Smoke.
