These Hand Painted Pillows Will Add Coastal Style to Your Summer Home

Behind the Design, Behind the Scenes | | | 2 Replies

This season, we’re offering a number of ways to embrace a coastal style. One of our favorite easy summer updates is switching out pillows, and the hand-painted designs on our painted coastal pillows are a great way to easily welcome summer and a coastal aesthetic into your home. Even better? They’re suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

When we checked in with MJ, one of Pottery Barn’s textile designers, she told us “All of these pillows were hand painted here at our studio at Pottery Barn. We do a lot of original artwork in house.” These in-house painted textiles are one of the reasons that Pottery Barn’s pillows, duvet covers and other lines are so unique. We love how this Painted Neutral Coastal Indoor/Outdoor Pillow looks like a piece of artwork for your sofa — it’s easy to imagine the pillow cover hanging in a frame on a wall.

Since these pillows are woven from soft, water-repellent polyester, you can use them on your living room sofa or your outdoor sectional. Either way, they’ll definitely serve as a conversation piece. Our favorite element of this Painted Blue Coastal Indoor/Outdoor Lumbar Pillow might be the blue-hued seahorse. What’s yours?

Whether your color scheme favors oceanic blues, earthy reds or oranges, as seen in this Painted Red Coastal Pillow,  or something more neutral, there’s a lovely painted design waiting for you with these coastal pillows.
