Unveiling the Living Room Now

Now, you know I can't stop once I'm on a roll, right? Okay then, once I put the covers on I noticed that there was a bit too much white in the room in that area. I love white and love those curtains, but it needed some color behind that sofa. I then put up the curtains I talked about here. I like it much better and will even more once I can get that Solartube in the ceiling. (I'm saving for it!) But before I show you the big photos of the sofa I thought I'd show you the fabric, texture and makeup of the slipcover up close.

So here is the room now. The curtains have a color in them that makes the red Thomasville chair go with it even if the photo looks odd. Colors aren't exactly true on monitors as much as in person.

And I also put this pillow that I bought at Ethan Allen 15 years ago back on the sofa. I like a mixture of pillows on my sofa and don't think it's too formal to put on there. Even if it is formal, I like it and that's what matters. :-)


  1. Looks so very lovely and bright and cheerful.

  2. Connie...everything looks just lovely and I do like the curtains you have up now - love the pattern and color behind your newly white sofa!!


  3. Love the way the new slipcover looks, Connie. So often, when one new thing enters a room, we have to tweak the rest of the room. I love what you've done.


  4. Very loverly, Connieness! Have a wonderful day.
    Be a sweetie,
