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.
This beast of a sofa was left behind in an apartment, but it wasn’t quite what the new tenant had in mind. With $20 worth of spray paint, and an enviable abundance of confidence, the tenant gave this old piece a fresh new face. While most of us haven´t made over a whole couch, I´m sure many of us have found random furniture in our homes—and it probably needs at least a little work.
And that sofa—it looks amazing. The unexpected color has a nice rosiness to it; we see more cool- and gray-toned browns these days so it´s a nice change. Meri Defferrari—@merideffe2 on Instagram—is an artist in Argentina who had the confidence and vision needed to dive into painting a major piece like this, and that boldness has paid off quite handsomely.
