Monday Musings: The Colored Sofa

My darlings, if I were to say that I missed you, I would be lying entirely because it would the understatement of the century. My heart pretty much stopped when we were separated. I mean I could almost have lived during the Shakespeare era, right? No, but in all seriousness, I know I am in the dog house with y'all from my unmentioned departure. I was testing for work, and life got in the way. What can I say? Forgive me? I thought you might.

Today I am talking about the colored sofa. Oooohhh and ahhhhhh. I am in the midst of several living room designs for my clients and the colored sofa has my mind running a million miles a minute. While some never thought of this to be the clear choice in recent years, it now is. And let me tell you something, really holds up to all of those sticky icky fingers you people with children endure (I just have muddy paws). I am loving the couch as the focal point to the space. It is unexpected and artistic and I think you should get on board.

  9. I was just reading in a popular home decor magazine that a rule of designing is to pick a solid, neutral sofa & use color and pattern in pillows... I was appalled and started yelling at the magazine. I'm down with that chintzy sofa!

  12. Yes sir-ree, Bob. That other job of yours is getting in the way of your blogging. You need to set them straight! Tell them that thousands of people are missing you.

  13. I love the navy!! I'm currently giving mine the evil eye b/c it's boring brown.

  14. Ah what perfect timing! I'm about to recover my sofa and am so overwhelmed with fabric options! This post is so inspiring. I would literally KILL for a sofa in that blue Quadrille fabric...and the curtains/wallpaper as well... I mean if I'm going to kill for it, I might as well take the whole room. xoxo
