The queen of cushioning in my humble opinion is none other than Faux Fuchsia who cushions like it’s nobodies business. She is of the belief that she would never knowingly under cushion and for that, I will love and respect her for all the rest of my days. I have to agree with her when it comes to the humble cushion in my own home. Let’s take a look around shall we?
I give you: the boudoir.
Here we are looking at a 7 cushion scenario. That’s right. 7. There are two pillows on each side and then 3 decorating cushions. They are no matching, a mixture of patterns and colours that could give someone a headache, but I love the look.
No matter how hard Rob tries, he can never get the cushioning just right on the bed. I applaud his attempts though, however the OCD in me will ALWAYS redo them. It’s a wonder he even tries anymore isn’t it?
Let’s move out to the lounge room. We have a large L shaped couch that houses 5 cushions. Again the patterns and colours are no matching, but DEAR GOD there is a strict placement rule in place. One side has these two:
And the other these 3. They must be placed thusly and you KNOW that before I go to bed at night that they are placed, just so, so when the children wake up and jump on the couch the ruin them from a place of just so. Crazy? You bet!
A single chair in my house will have just the one cushion. Well DER.
And then the couch down near the kids play area has just 3. And of course they do not match. Some match, but not all.
There are some key points here that are consistent: Odd numbers. Non matching. Different sizes. Different textures. And the fact that clearly I am a little mental. One man that called up the radio show said that he has taken a picture of the cushions on the couch on his iPhone so he can put them back EXACTLY as his wife would like. I think this man is a GENIUS.
How many cushions do you have on your couch?
Do you believe in cushioning?
Do you make them just right before going to bed?
