To achieve a Scandi-inspired, minimalist look, pair a set of slouchy square pillows in one corner of the sofa (preferably one solid and one patterned), and prop a smaller, rectangular-shaped pillow in the center of the other cushion. Instead of predictably tucking a single pillow into the corner of your sofa, why not take inspiration from Cottage Cloth and place a set facing inward? We love her choice of contrasting striped fabric, too.
If you'd like to recreate this look exactly, the paint used was Montana Colors' Greyhound Brown, but you could also use spray paint specially formulated for painting vinyl (pleather) and fabric. I know from experience that it works great. And if any of you do start spray painting your furniture, be sure to tell us all about it! Meri leaves us with these wise words of advice that apply to projects large and small: "Wear a mask when you spray paint."
If you’ve got a plain Jane sofa and you want it to look more formal a surefire way to do it is to add some nailhead trim. Simply determine the lines of the sofa you want to accent and then nail in the tacks (try to place them at even intervals of roughly ½ inch). Just be sure to choose a solid part of the frame so you’ve got a solid foundation to nail the trim into. And it should go without saying that you cannot do this on a slipcovered piece – only on one that’s upholstered.
