My clock broke.  I don't remember what happened exactly but it ended up shattered on the floor.  Anyway, I am in the market and I want something interesting.

I found this modern cuckoo clock on Etsy. Unfortunately my husband won't go for it.

So then I found this clock on Craigslist.  I think I'm going to go for it.  I want to paint it ( much to my husbands chagrin).  But it looks beautiful in my head, here's to hoping that vision translates to reality.

Any suggestions on color?

couch inspiration

Please forgive the six months between posts, I blame it on the twins.  And the iPhone.  Getting on a real computer is a rarity these days.

If you have read this blog for any matter of time you may recognize the first picture.  It is a couch similar to the one my Mom gave me.  Unfortunately for me it resides three long states away.  My loss is currently my sister's gain.  When she got married a couple of years ago she took the couch out of storage and has been using it since.  She is getting ready to move into a new house and with this change she is thinking the couch could use some TLC in the form of re-upholstering.

 This is the basic shape and style of the couch.  I still love the green by the way.  While the green and this next pattern are fun, I fear they aren't realistic.  The reality is that re-upholstering a couch is expensive and you are less likely to get sick of a neutral color in a year or two.
 That being said, one of my favorite interior designers, Jenny Komenda, was looking at gray, chocolate and navy's for a new couch so what better place to start?  Here are some fun navy's and grays.

 This one is a velvet.  It looks pretty cosy, but I fear that velvet may be a fleeting trend.  What do you think? 

 The rest of these are linens.  A pretty standard and classic fabric.  

So there you go Chels.  Some sofa inspiration.
