This celadon striped pillow cover is 100 percent linen, which makes for an upscale seaside look at a fraction of the usual cost. The striped detail is hand-embroidered, to boot. Each of these handcrafted pillows feature designs based off of traditional Congo garb. They're created from natural dyed raffia to add an authentic, colorful touch to your sofa.
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."
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.
