Despite liking lots of pretty things around my house, cushions have never been my 'thing'. I know many can't get enough of them and have sofas and beds full, but me? I've always been a bit take them or leave them, to be honest. Until recently. Maybe it's because I have children that don't like to sleep so I drift about our home in a tired daze and whenever I sit down, I now want somewhere soft and cloud-like to lay my head. Even if it's just for a minute or two until my little dudes realise that I've gone quiet and seek to shatter my moment's peace with requests for 'more drinks', 'more snacks', or 'fix my toy'. So slowly but surely, cushions are making their way in to all my rooms, adding a touch of colour and a chance for comfort.
The latest addition to my collection is this stunning silk splash embroidered cushion from WITHIN. It has pride of place on my side of the bed and I adore the pop of colour against the white bedding. It's filled with duck feather too so is seriously soft. I absolutely love it. It adds that extra touch of luxury to our bedroom making it the perfect place to sneak away to to read or put my feet up.
If you haven't come across WITHIN before, you must check out the website. It's a treasure trove of gorgeous furniture and accessories and at all at prices that won't make your eyes water and your wallet a whole lot lighter. There's a huge summer sale on right now too, so it's an even better time to browse the collections. I'm a little bit in love with these artichoke placecard holders. They're so cute!
And because the team at WITHIN are so lovely, they've kindly offered me a second cushion, just like mine, to giveaway to one lucky reader. All you have to do is follow the instructions in the rafflecopter widget below. There's one mandatory entry requirement ... you must sign up for the WITHIN newsletter (you can find the little box on the bottom right hand side of the homepage and you just need to type in your email address). If you find it's not for you (I'm sure that you won't, though), you can unsubscribe once the giveaway has ended at 12am on August 9, 2015, and the winner has been selected. You can also gain an extra entry just by leaving me a comment telling me what your favourite book is. The full terms and conditions can be found in the widget. Good luck!
