Out with the with the new

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, 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!!! 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?!?!?!?!


  1. I like the Red! It's bold and sassy, like you!

  2. I immediately thought the red looked like you- so fun!

  3. I like them all! I'm terrible at making choices. I do think the red looks like you and I think it would go well with the rest of the house.
    PS - you might want to check the e-mail on this blog. Every comment I make comes back saying the e-mail isn't working.

  4. I love love love the red! I think my second choice would have to be the khaki/blue.

  5. I like option 2!! Love all the fabric choices.

  6. LOVE THE RED! but they are all pretty choices. I don't think you could go wrong. how fun to pick out new furniture!!!!!!!
