pdating your home needn’t mean a huge decorating job. With a few well placed, up-to-date accessories, you can give it the lift it needs without much time or effort, or having to re-mortgage your house.

Scatter cushions breathe life into old sofas and neglected beds, offering both comfort and style.

We’ve found a few favourites to add to your home this season.

Elizabeth Scarlett Palmier Chambray Cushion

Let this cushion take you to warmer climes, where palm trees are an everyday occurrence rather than an Instagram opportunity. Inspired by the tree lined groves of the French Riviera, the pale blue hue perfectly complements the embroidery and pale cream piping.

Zara Coral Linen Cushion

As Sebastian once taught us, under the sea is always better. Coral silhouettes make for striking embellishments and this beaded cover proves just that. The cotton and linen mix fabric provides a crisp background for the romantic decoration, making this a must-have for any gold themed room.

Att Pynta Jacquard Pom Pom Cushion

Team this bold print with pink or yellow for a Liquorice All Sorts effect. Handmade from heavyweight 100 per cent cotton, it’ll catch your eye even from across the room. We particularly love the pompoms, which soften the edges of the look.

Timorous Beasties Three Bee Cushion

Timorous Beasties, which has long been a purveyor of the statement print trend, proves that bold is beautiful with this bee print cushion. What catches our eye is the intricate illustration, which captures the striking outline of the insect perfectly.

Oliver Bonas Sheepskin Cushion

Sometimes, we just need something fluffy to hug. If you’re in short supply of pets, why not plump for a cushion instead? Oliver Bonas has designed a range that balances both comfort and style exactly, seen particularly in this soft pink one, which would be ideal for cuddling up with in bed.
