Spring could be fleeting, but don’t neglect to make the most of this season’s vibrant and hopeful inspiration indoors. Use temporary pillow covers to add bright color and pattern to sofas, chairs and beds.
Take color cues from nature’s blossoms and blue skies and opt for oranges, greens, pinks, reds and teals. From contemporary stripes to elaborate florals to designer ikats, there is a pattern to suit nearly every aesthetic.
Slip a pillow cover on an existing pillow and avoid shelling out the money for another pillow form. The only switch outside covers as your disposition — or the weather affects! — Dana from House Tweaking
