Growing up we often moved house, and my sisters and I loved to move the furniture around to make it feel like it was "our" space. It wasn't long before we looked forward to the next adventure though.
These days, having been in our house for a good few years, the furniture seems to be in the right spots, and when I long for change, I can't just pick up and leave and start afresh like when we were children. It may sound trite, but making some small changes, like moving around artwork on the walls, or just changing cushions, does brighten things up, and also makes me feel like my life isn't static. Perhaps it's just the nomad in me that needs to uproot a tiny bit, but not too much.
Here are a few beautiful cushions to bring some new season looks into your home. There are so many out there, and I've looked at Furnish.co.uk, Etsy, Made, notonthehighstreet.com to name just a few.

I love this neon yellow flamingo, I'd put him next to his more staid, traditional sibling here below
And strictly not for the kids' room, how fabulous are these sexy burlesque themed cushions, perfect for a boudoir, thrown across a chaise long, or even on a spare bed!
