Cotswold Company giveaway!

I am having a bit of a cushion moment. This might be because they are, in the parlance of interiors magazines, ‘a quick and economical way to freshen up your decor / add a pop of colour / ‘ etc. This might be because I am still spending much (although increasingly less) of my time making piles of them to prop my elbows on whilst I feed a baby. It might also be because our cushions are getting a bit old, and I have been wondering about getting some new ones. It might be because I have been watching friends of mine make some incredibly beautiful ones, and wondering whether I should in fact make some myself.

But surely the only thing that could be better than buying or making lovely cushions, would be to win some and get them for free?

Cotswold company vintage style cushionHurrah therefore for giveaways, and for the Cotswold Company who will send two of these vintage-style cushions to one of my readers. All you have to do is leave a comment, answering this question:

If you could decorate one corner of your house with any Cotswold Company product, what would it be and why?

Leave your answer in the comments below and we will select a winner 31st July 2013.

Good luck!

    My cushions are ancient too. Pushing 8 years at this stage and really looking ratty since my twin toddlers got their hands on them! If I win those lovely cushions I would use them in my home office (where I go to hide from my children;)) to make my chair more comfortable and to add a bit of much needed character. I might never leave!

    Oooh tough choice as they have so many lovely items! I would go for this fab doormat: http://www.cotswoldco.com/accessories/garden/doormats/birdhouse-doormat/

    We’ve just painted and put down laminate floor in our porch and the old doormat now looks particularly tatty! This one would make for a much more welcoming first impression!

      Verity – I never thought I would hear myself say these words, but that really is a beautiful doormat! Good spot.

    It would be my bedroom. Inherited the furniture from my parents (for whom it was too old and dark) 30 years ago and have simply not had time, inclination or inspiration to do anything about it since. Want to make it more Sunday morning, tea, breakfast and “Archers” friendly so I can be induced to spend more time there.

  4. Sarah Whitelock says:

    I live in a Cotswold house on the edge of the Cotswolds so my home would be perfectly adorned with any item from this wonderful local company. However I have a window in the corner of my lounge which I know would be considerably improved with the addition of the gorgeous Tetbury corner seat – Rach I love your blog, you should promote it more :)

  5. Lucy Rolfe says:

    Definitely the school hooks for my hallway. Maybe when my two daughters come home from school they might actually hang up their book bags/cardigans/coats instead of scattering them through the hallway and up the stairs. I fear this is wishful thinking, however the hooks would still look fab!

  6. Lisa says:

    I have fallen for the saffron yellow Danish cushion!(and the grey and a few others!) I would put it in my bedroom on my yellow candlewick bedspread!

  7. Jessi says:

    I would love to get the gorgeous blue floral quilt, as I am moving into my first flat in London and it would be lovely to make it feel a bit homey and fabulous at the same time :)

  8. Emma says:

    Hi Rachel, I love reading your blog! Especially since I share your love of Ikea and dislike of clutter.

    If I could choose an item I’d go for the drawer chest http://www.cotswoldco.com/painswick-9-drawer-chest/ in an attempt to tidy our lounge to make it more calm and serene rather than its current resemblance to the aftermath of a herd of elephants having run through Toys R Us!

    It would be this house name: http://www.cotswoldco.com/accessories/garden/house-names-and-numbers/house-name-plaque/
    as we still have the hand painted name that OH painted on an old piece of slate on the day we moved in 8 years ago!

    Hello Rachel,

    Well for me it would definitely be the Raffles corner seat as Raffles is Rafe’s family nickname and he grew up in the Cotswolds!

  11. Thanks so much for linking up to #PoCoLo! Hmm, well, I think as our nice-smart-ish living/dining room is drowned in clutter like toys and shoes, I’d have to go for this shoe console, to at least hide away some of the footwear that just gets chucked onto the floor daily! http://www.cotswoldco.com/hallway-furniture/shoe-storage-bench/tetbury-shoe-console-ivory/

  12. Jude says:

    I’d choose the grey kooboo log basket (to go with the wood burner that I’m really REALLY hoping we’ll have had fitted by the time the winter gets here!)

  13. Jo Ingram says:

    The corner most bare is my hallway. A narrow Victorian space which has been all but ignored for more than a decade. So for that reason I would place a lovely console table there, most specifically this one, http://www.cotswoldco.com/dining-room-furniture/console-tables/portland-oak-console-table/, and artfully perch post and magazines on it!

  14. Sophie says:

    I would go for this http://www.cotswoldco.com/hallway-furniture/telephone-tables/portland-oak-telephone-hall-table/
    and put a massive stainless steel retro phone on it and put it on a tiny, telephone table-sized stripey rug, because that would be pretty cool.

    I’d love the Fruits Cushion for the armchair in our kitchen, brighten it up! http://www.cotswoldco.com/fruits-applique-cushion/
