Creating custom cushions is an effective and easy way to spice up a space for lounging or relaxation. We love this execution of bright and lively neon and mixed jewel tones. In this particular shot they paired the cushion with matching sofa upholstery fabric, but you can add splashes of color like this to any complimenting or neutral colors to add a dynamic moment.
