Love Love Love all the color. I don't trust my Westie who loves my living room sofa, even with Sunbrella. Another good idea for COLOR is using bits and pieces of remnant fabrics on a traditional (tired) chair as I did with a client at designchar.com

Love the pillows! Nicely done! My fabric mixing rule is: If I like it, it "goes together." And yours "goes together" beautifully.

Oh, and by the way, my sister does have high ceilings and the sofa looks just fine. I should have mentioned that in my last post.

I think it may be Modern Grey Floral by Robert Allen... Very difficult to find :(

Slipcovers for sofa - I have a lovely Henredon sofa-Oriental inspired-with one seat cushion. Every thing I look at has three cushions. Where can I find slipcover for my sofa?

The key to this look is the white slipcover, Pre-washed fabrics in linen or cotton or blends of washable cloth is a must - this provides user friendly performance, especially if you have an active family and pets

Photos illustrate how I have designed and created slipcovers to custom fit furniture for clients and designers here in the Bay Area and San Francisco.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

4. All Florals, All the Time. Anyone who has visited a cottage in England knows that there are no two floral prints that clash with one another. Tip: When a pair of floral prints appear to be clashing, simply add a third. If those look like they are clashing, add a fourth, and so on, until it all just works. This mix has a wide range of floral styles, color palettes and scales, and the result is sophisticated and inviting.
Samantha Schoech added this to How to Give Your Home That Lazy Summer Vibe
Go white and bright. White slipcovers are bright and summery, and they can be washed.
The epiphanyThat’s what I’d been trying to do for years. I had spent so much time and energy into setting my house in order, but I could only ever get it to a certain point before it fell back into mayhem. But then the answer came in a vacation that inspired an epiphany, which changed everything.Our family had rented a little cottage on Lake Michigan. I kept the place as neat as the proverbial pin, and it was so simple. Wondering why, I realized our life at the cottage was limited to food, clothes and books. And that was that. I decided this was the way I wanted to live all the time. No matter what, I was going to get us down to food, clothes and books. I was finally going to live William Morris’ maxim, “Have nothing in your house you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”With the help of an organized friend, I began a spree of decluttering and reorganizing, the likes of which our home had never seen. Over the course of several months, I went room by room, sorting, throwing away and donating until I had gone through almost everything. And then, in one of life’s little ironies, in the wee hours of June 27, 2010, an arsonist randomly set our house on fire. My husband and I and our three children were all at home in bed and escaped with the clothes on our backs. I did grab my laptop, because it was right at hand. I didn't even stop to put on shoes or fetch my purse, and I was so thankful to have saved our digital pictures and all my writings.
Living RoomPillows are one of the easiest ways to add color to your living room, and they can be swapped out occasionally when you crave change. A neutral couch in white, gray, beige or chocolate is versatile and can handle any cushions you pile on.Style tip: Choose a theme (for instance, botanicals and florals) to keep even an eclectic collection of pillows feeling pulled together.
2. Put things in perspective. The ideabook below, by Alison Hodgson, is a great place to start any decluttering journey. Hodgson and her family lost their home and all of their possessions in a fire, and the lessons she has to share are invaluable. If you are wondering where to begin, or how you could ever possibly get rid of things you love, it is a must-read.Get the guide: Tips to Get With a New Minimalist Mentality
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Feel Free to Break Some Decorating Rules
Wait a minute; what about the rules of the color wheel? I gotta be honest: Primary colors, secondary colors and tertiary colors make my head swim. Talk about taking all the fun out of decorating! Here's the deal: The color wheel was developed in the 18th century by painters, for painters. It was never meant to apply to using color in our homes. Design heresy? Yes. But consider this: Studied rooms, where the palette was chosen nose-to-color-wheel, almost always feel ... studied. Rooms like the one shown here take a much freer, more organic approach, using color the way we see it in nature. Just look at the bit of the flower arrangement we can see. Revel in that natural approach to color! We never worry whether the bright lime green of new needles on an evergreen tree works with the darker gray-green of the older foliage. We never declare it anathema because a warm color is mixed with a cool one. If you want a rule for how to work with color, simply take notes from nature.

PRO Lisa Custom Home Decor You will have to have a custom Slipcover made. I make Slipcovers for a living and it is very hard to buy off the shelf a slipcover unless you buy a piece with a slipcover already on it. Upholstery styles change so often that slipcover websites can only offer a somewhat standard slips. You can call your local fabric store and ask if they can recommend a workroom or seamstress that specializes in Slipcovers. That is how most of my work is referred to me. The pictures I attached shows a before and after. July 22, 2012 at 8:08am Like 3 PRO Tamar Schechner my slipcover is from Ikea.
