Our sofa, opposite, is covered in loose-weave linen. We opted for window shades made of similarly textured and hued material, a simple pull-down model in a color called Wheat from Janovic. We bought fabric in New York City’s fashion district and asked a tailor to make pillow covers. All told, each pillow cost about $35.
The urn holding the snake plant is a reproduction from Tara Shaw Antiques in New Orleans. It’s constructed of lightweight fiberglass and looks weirdly real. We placed it on a small silver-colored tray from Jamali Garden to catch any water spills. We chose to hang only a few pieces of art on the walls, including this antique Korean scroll.
