I the picture below, a lovely mix of yellow, blue, pink and green.
A trendy and popular combination of colours is yellow and grey as shown in the picture below.
Yellow mixed with purple is a match made in heaven.

"Dear Bemz team,
This was worth waiting for. I hope that the photos makes you happy. I am really happy and proud of my new sofa.
Greetings from a fluffy corner of Berlin"
It looks really stylish with the white sofa, flowery cushion covers and curtains, and we do love the cats, they really seem to enjoy the sofa!
Danke Bärbel for sharing you beautiful home with us!
Be inspired by the five different bedroom lifestyles the fabulous Bemz design team has put together. Choose from over 220 different fabrics and create your dream bedroom in your own personal style with our bedroom products.
The Bemz bedroom range includes bedspreads, IKEA headboard and bed frame covers, and bed skirts in a variety of styles and sizes. Bemz bed skirts fit most standard size beds regardless of the manufacturer. You can also find daybed covers that transform extra beds into functional sofas.
See all images for the five different bedroom lifestyles here.
As the name suggests, Playground is all about playfulness. Happy colours and daring patterns mix with Scandinavian design classics and modern favourites. A white backdrop ensures the splashes of red, green, orange, blue, and last but not least, black, do not overload the look. Design and functionality are key for this family-friendly lifestyle.
LITTLEPHANT FABRICS AVAILABLE FROM APRIL 2014

The relaxed, yet sophisticated Bohemian Lifestyle is characterized by a hand picked mix of modern iconic designs and antique classics. Plush carpets and billowing curtains soften dark wooden furniture. Don’t be afraid to mix colours and textures, these are exciting clashes that will enhance that bohemian look!
The bedroom is a peaceful refuge from the day’s stresses. Beautiful throws, varied based on season, trend or mood, contribute to the cosy atmosphere. The same applies to cushions. Although a variety of solid-coloured, patterned and embroidered cushions are used, there is no feeling of clutter. A sense of personal luxury is created with a subtly wrinkled linen bed skirt.
Bed skirt, Loose Fit Country style in Lavender Rosendal Pure Washed Linen. Cushion covers in Soft White, Gustavian Flowers Dusty Rose, New Baroque Chocolate Brown,Tea Green Belgian Linen Blend, Lavender Belgian Linen Blend, all by Bemz.
The Scandinavian Country home is an interpretation of a romantic past. Sweet pastels and dainty patterns are set against neutral white walls and floors. Quintessential florals, informal stripes and checks emphasise the rural expression. This style speaks to those who love fixing up old flea market finds and repainting inherited heirlooms.
Create a cozy, romantic vintage-looking bedroom using whites and light pastels, ideally in crisp linens. A pleated bed skirt orupholstered headboard paired with cushions and throws underline the tranquil and harmonious vibe.
Simple Life is one with nature, taking root in rugged coastal scenery. Conscious pairings of new and old, along with an adapted sun bleached, stonewashed and sea worn colour palette, creates a home that exudes simplicity and natural elegance. Various light coloured textiles reinforce the fresh and simple look of this nature-inspired decor.
The typical Simple Life bedroom is discriminating and uncomplicated. The focus is on function and free of clutter. A washed linen bed skirt brings a balance of elegance and natural simplicity. A wooden pallet, or a worn wooden crate standing on end, serves as a bedside table. The guest room bed is transformed into a daybed simply by adding matching cushions.
Urban Living evokes a self-confident attitude and a singular character. Angular and minimalist but far from dull, this interior relies on a mix of textures, including highly polished surfaces, brushed steel and exclusive woods to create a chic and functional feel. The colour scheme is monochromatic, based on either a dark or light palette.
The Urban Living styled bedroom takes inspiration from hotel rooms. Its function as the perfect retreat from the daily stresses of city living is fulfilled via a coherent colour scheme. Carefully selected designer cushions are lined up while a stylish throw sits at the foot of the bed. An upholstered headboard and a straightbed skirt with box pleats contribute to the sense of serene luxury.
We love how the stripes adds interest and lifts the kitchen. Great choice Christine, and thank you for sending us pictures of you lovely home!
Nine lovely bloggers from the Bloggers Tour 2014 visited our Inspiration Store in Stockholm. We had some nibbles and drinks and the bloggers got to create their very own cushion covers.
We supplied them with Bemz cushion covers, paint, pencils, studs, sequins, fabric, fringes and much more and let their imaginations run wild. They created lots of creative, beautiful and fun contributions.
At Bemz we are all about personalisation and DIY-projects. And it is easy and fun to create your own, one-of-a-kind cushion cover, why don't you try it?

"I went online in search for the best "vintage" IKEA sofa and found a Nikkala for just €25 with a really ghastly purple slipcover. The sofa itself was in tip top shape. I came home, assembled the Bemz slipcover over the sofa and ta da; a brand new sofa for just €25." - Yvonne says.
That's the beauty of it, it doesn't have to cost a lot of money to get a completely new and personalised sofa! If you don't already have an IKEA sofa at home, buy a second hand IKEA sofa and design it anyway as you like with Bemz slipcovers. Choose between Regular Fit, Loose Fit Country and Loose Fit Urban and more then 220 different colours.
Thank you Yvonne for letting us share your photos!

Here is what Anne wrote: Cover just installed! Perfect.
And we can only agree! Goteborg looks absolutely amazing in Plum Panama Cotton sofa slip cover from Bemz. The classic colours of brown, beige and white and the expressive purple is definitely a winning combination.
Well done Anne, and thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us.
