Hide CaptionShow CaptionThe four cushions in the inspiration room were custom-sewn with brocade fabric and bead detailing at a cost of nearly $2,000.
Halili purchased all the material to replicate the cushions for only $128. Michelle sewed the cushion covers using a combination of dupioni silk, chenille and a cotton blend. A two-inch piece of foam was inserted inside each cover, and a string of green and gold beads were fastened onto the corners of the cushions.

Tip: If using chenille for upholstery, make sure to buy an upholstery grade, rather then one used for clothing. Clothing-grade chenille tends to stretch, and if used on cushions, it will often lose its shape.
