Couched in Beauty


I finally got my "new" vintage sofa back from the upholsterer, and if I may say so myself, it's a beauty.


Have we all seen the "Chiang Mai Dragon" print before? Yep. Do I tire of it? Never. It's a bit on the pricey side, so keeping its use limited to the sofa back got me a lot of bang for the buck. And because the back of the sofa faces the front entry, it makes a great impact.

The sofa front is covered in a buttery-soft, commercial-grade eco vinyl from Architex.


Why vinyl, you ask?

Here's how it looked before its little visit to the upholsterer:

The Living Room is slowly coming together.... baby steps. Literally.

ok this is too funny!

I am currently doing a tweens (yes I just used that word) room and we are doing her wing chair just like this but with the aquamarine version!

Great minds think alike!

Holy crap! I'm in love. You gave me such a good idea to make your money go a really long way and honestly, I think I like it better than if it were completely covered with the fabric. And the vinyl, come on, gorgeous.
