Fearne Cotton has always been a style icon, so it’s little wonder her home (specifically, the LOVE cushion inside her home) has captured social media’s attention in a very big way.
It started off as a snapshot of a cat on a hot summer’s day. Many, many, many Instagram likes later, however, and that very same photo of Simon (yes, the cat) has since become a source of inspiration for bedroom ideas left, right, and centre.

Describing Fearne Cotton’s LOVE cushion as ‘a giant, squishy affirmation card,’ Nat points out that ‘you can’t help but smile while looking at it’ – a hallmark of dopamine decor done well.
‘Look for fun colour combinations and touchy-feely trimmings,’ the former fashion hun turned interiors expert advises to those hoping to recreate the vibe in their own small bedrooms at home.
‘Take Fearne’s lead and start with small accessories or try scouring charity shops and second-hand marketplaces for fun little trinkets, and always ask yourself, does this piece bring me joy?’

‘As Fearne Cotton knows, your surroundings have a huge impact on your sense of well-being, so it’s important to create a space that’s a true reflection of you,’ says Nat, noting that ‘joyful doesn’t have to mean bright colours if you’re not a fan.’
‘Decorate your home with things you that delight your eye – and as Fearne’s cushion reminds us, with things you love – and you can’t go wrong.’
And on that reassuring note, we’re off to embrace the maximalist bedroom trend in earnest…
