Remember when I told you I had ordered a new slipcovered couch? Well, it arrived yesterday! HOORAY! This is just a first look, but I promise Ill be back with more.
(If you notice the glow in my photos across the floor and rugin the above photo, our Seattle sky was full of smoke from wildfires and the sun was glowing like an orange fireball through the smog into my house! It was really bad yesterday, even though there arent fires near us).
The couch was just delivered so the slipcover still has some packing wrinkles and I didnt have time to fully set up the room or anything yet (thus the lamp perched a stool, ha!) BUT I was so excited that I couldnt wait to show yall.
This is the couch I havehere. I chose the deep seat slipcovered with a bench cushion, 80 inches long in the Warm White Denim fabric.
The moment the delivery crew set it down in my living room I could tell I was going to love the simplicity and crisp feeling it brings to the space. I still have my dark velvet couch, it went back downstairs so well still enjoy it there.
The new couch has the same washable fabric I had on my original slipcovered sofa, its just as wonderful as I remembered. Its so soft and the white denim is pretty against the Benjamin Moore Simply White walls, too.
The couch is super comfy! Its deep, so its going to be perfect for curling up but also not too deep to just sit and chat (and Im only 52!) with the pillows behind you.
I cant wait to put the room all together now that its here. (Of course Ive been thinking about it for weeks, but its always so helpful to actually have the couch in the room.) I still havent decided if Im going to bring my leather sofa into this room, too, or not, but I know Ill be using a combination of my long time favorites in this room: whites + woods + leather with lots of textural warmth and evolving colors and accessories with the seasons.
Courtney(my daughter and full time assistant for the past four or so years!) cant wait to do a little puttering around the house this week. Undoubtedly well try a few arrangements to get the right mix, so stay tuned for more photos and angles of the room!
PS. Get ready to pull out all your cozy layers & my yearly Fall Nesting series will be starting up soon. WHO IS EXCITED?! I am&Ive totally enjoyed this summer, but the smoke is putting a damper on my outdoor activities so Im especially ready to start nesting inside. :)
