When I first set out to decorate the guest bedroom, I decided on the linen look and a bird theme with teal, blue accents. I bought this pillow before I did the rest of the room and as things progressed, the pillow was the only white thing in the room and stood out not in a good way. I was going to have to use it elsewhere until my friend came over, brewed some tea, and used a paintbrush to tea-stain the white of the pillow. Now it matches the duvet cover perfectly! I'm so excited! It is a subtle difference hard to capture in photos, but it is amazing!
