Beautiful textiles set the tone for a space. You can transform an okay couch into something bearable and beautiful with the right throw pillows. And you can turn a beautiful room and a great sofa into a disaster with the wrong accessories. It’s always fun to add pieces to a room that you can’t find everywhere. I’m a big fan of small textile shops. Artists and curators behind small shops seek to carry unique things, things that can immediately breathe life into a room. About a year ago I was introduced to Marta and her beautiful shop, Made of Cloth. Her fabric designs begin from hand drawn sketches and are gorgeous, a must see in person. Each pillow is designed with one side featuring an original print, and the other side hand dyed linen (see above). The pillows are finished with sturdy outside zippers, which adds a cool, unexpected element. I love these so much and want you to have a pair, too. So we’re giving away TWO pillows of YOUR CHOICE!! Head to @greyandscout instagram this Wednesday, 1/27, for details and how to enter!
Marta also designs these pretty pouches, that I’m thinking would make for the perfect makeup bag (and would be awesome bridesmaid gifts, too – something fun and cool that they can actually use again).
