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.
