Hi Christine -
I came across your blog while searching for some decorating ideas early this morning and I have spent aaallllll day (literally- the entire day) reading your blog and soaking up your ideas and suggestions!! We'll be moving soon and I was looking for some ideas. I have realized I desperately need a new couch in order to make any design work well, but it isn't in the budget right away. The love seat we have is a hand-me-down, comfy & greatly appreciated, but it isn't the right colors and such, so I was wondering what your thought are about slip covers. To make it more complicated - I think - the love seat is a dual recliner. Do they even make slip covers for recliner love seats? I keep picturing the awful slipcovers from years ago that don't fit and "slip" off the furniture the instant you sit down. Any suggestions would be great. Brands to look for? Brands to stay away from?
Thanks in advance.--

Hi Christine -
Have you ever considered slip covering your coffee table? Or have you thought about adding a canopy to a bed that already had a headboard? What about the Costco size TP? Have you thought of slip covering it? Fabric adds so much to a room- softness, pattern, texture, color ambiance. Consider adding some more to your interiors. The table in the top photo- does it have a large scratch? is is painted blue? Is it in perfect beautiful shape ? I love this idea of slip covering the table. I love that it is not a long Victorian slipcover- but rather a simple chic stylish look that adds another dimension to the room with more color and pattern. Sometimes finding the right wall decor for over a bed can be a challenge- but instead of wall decor- add some fabric. The softness and romance it adds goes a lot further to finishing off the room. I like how it is "unexpected." You would expect to find two coordinating pieces of art, or perhaps a mirror above the headboard. A stagecoach style canopy? Unexpected.
