this is our couch in all of her glory - she used to be pretty, clean and the right shape but the crucial word is USED to be....kids, dog, food and general wear and tear have made her a sad version of her former self so it's time to say good bye to her ~
i have learned that a slipcover is a MUST!
the chairs are slip covered and still in great condition but need some new life!!
I have always wanted a white couch...everyone says it's impractical but Genevieve from HGTV says it can be bleached and really what's more southern than a white slip covered couch?!?!?!?
but then i walked and saw THIS....LOVE!!!i feel like this screams beach cottage and i think
we live close enough to the beach to pull it off ~ I simply j'adore anything cottagey!!!
Soooo.....here are our choices
couch - red/aqua pattern - chairs - blue paisley pattern and accent pillows out of the 3 colors including the blue...
couch - khaki linen - the chairs - navy pattern and accents out of the blue (I wonder if Charlotte's blonde hair will show up more on the darker pattern)
my WHITE couch i've always wanted - chairs - brown paisley and accent pillows in the blue pattern - I kind of like the chairs in the blue pattern but think it might be too drab
we have burlap curtains to bring in texture and the rest of the house (to be seen later) is in the khaki and blues...I wonder if the red pattern is too far out of the box for the rest of the house???
It's such a hard decision....clearly we need to make one SOON ~ the couch and chairs will take about 6 weeks to come in and i'm not sure our lovely lady is going to last that long!!!
what do you think?? HELP?!?!?!?!
