With the right theme, colour palette and textures, you can easily create comfort zones at home using curtains, upholstery, pillows and everything soft and plush.
IN THE LIVING ROOM
Soft furnishing in the living or family room works best when there is a good mix of different elements. As it is usually a very sociable space, consider adding in comfortable touches like throws, plush carpets, small pillows and decorative objects to inject a lively ambience into the room.
Fabric choice is the most essential element when it comes to upholstered furniture. Go for tightly woven fabrics because they tend to wear the best. Also, fabrics that have their pattern woven in will wear better than printed fabrics.
Pillows are a must-have for creating comfort zones because they are wonderfully easy to use. With a huge variety of pillows and cushions out there to choose from, you can even consider having a set for everyday use and another for special occasions.

FOR THE BEDROOM
Without a doubt, the bed is the centre of attention in bedrooms. Other than investing in a good quality bed frame and mattress, the choice of soft furnishing must be given equal attention as well. Bedding and linen determine the overall look of bedrooms while lighting set the ambience and mood.
Thread count is one of the most important things to consider when buying bed sheets. The higher the thread count, the stronger, softer and more durable your linens would be. It’s ideal to choose sheets between 200 and 400 thread count for the best quality at a reasonable price, but the highest-quality sheets may exceed 400 thread count.
First of all, decide what sort of mood or feeling that you would like to create in your bedroom. If it’s romantic and cosy, go for pastel and more feminine tones. If you want something simpler, you won’t go wrong with neutral and naturals. Colours can be incorporated easily via your bedding elements or painting the walls a certain colour.
To achieve a comfortable ambience, bedrooms should have a balance mix of natural daylight and artificial lighting. Ensure there are enough windows in the bedroom so that you receive warm daylight during the day. You can employ the use of blinds, sheers and draperies to help control how much sunlight comes it. At night, the use of table lamps and pendant lamps, or even chandeliers will set an exquisite environment in the bedroom.
