My Top 5 of the day : Something Soft

Welcome to my first post, it’s pretty nerve racking. Not knowing if anybody will read this in the first place. In that case, I will just continue to talk to myself, it’s not like anybody will find out … ;-)

Cushions possess the amazing skill of finishing off a room or a piece of furniture. Whether they come in one, two or even five, they manage to give it a finishing and homely touch.

Knowing me I’ll have found new favorite cushions tomorrow, so today I give you : My top 5 Cushion Designers of the day!

1. Annabel Grey Fabrics
We’ve been seeing flower prints on the streets for months now, and its only natural that it will crawl off the streets into our homes.
These amazing prints made me smile immediately as they are fun, colourful and oh so stylish. Be sure to visit
