Your pillow & cushion guide for bedrooms is here!


Firstly – What’s the difference, simply pillows are for sleeping and cushions for decoration. Pillows are essential and cushions are fun! It would be an expectation that pillows are on any bed but cushions are the staple when it when styling your home, and swapping them out is one of the easiest ways to update your space without major construction or breaking the bank.

In bedrooms specifically, we love to rearrange and scatter the cushions to create a warm and inviting atmosphere, and finish off the design of the space.


Explore and allow your inner creative to shine by mixing and matching colours, patterns and texture with cushions, pillows and bedding, especially when done in a thoughtful way.


There are many ways to do it, but in this post, we’re sharing our tried and true method that will work for almost any space.


In this guide, we’ve outlined what pillow & cushion sizes compliment each bed size, pillow combinations, and real examples from our projects. Keep reading!


King :


Three 65x65 Euros with two 50x50 in front of them and one lumbar in front cushion for a basic look, but to really spruce it up you could add up to 4 more cushions




Queen :


Two 65x65 or two 50x50 and a lumbar in front but up to another additional 3 for some additional laying and visual interest.



Twin / Single :


One 65x65 or one 50x50 with lumbar or 45x45 in front.
