Something's Changing at CDLV


I'll give you one good guess. Hmmm? On the count of three ... one, two, A PONY! Ok, ok, so it's a gray sofa. I know, not as exciting as a pony - but equally as difficult to fit into my current decorating scheme. I found the most perfect sofa, tight back, diminutive rolled arm, on 5" legs in the most yummy men's suiting flannel in a heather gray that is just P.E.R.F.E.C.T.I.O.N, and I had to have it.

Highly inspired by my friend Kelley of The Polished Pebble and her condo redo with her Crate and Barrel sofa and Noir chairs, I jumped at the opportunity and bought the beauty for my living room. It means some more changes for CDLV, big ones ... like the repainting of a room that was JUST painted, *DARN* but the more I lived with the color, and the longer Scott persisted that it wasn't his favorite either ... I think another coat of paint might just be the perfect solution.

I love how Kelley paired her gray sofa with linen and stripe for that comfortable California look we all know Kelley to do so well. But when I first talked to her about her project ... she was inspired by an old Navajo rug with it's rusty red and gray tones ... which has me thinking about all of the beautiful Turkish rugs that we have stacked up in the guest room closet.

One more thing to do ... are you as excited as I am? Care to help? LOL! Ok, back to work figuring it all out. If you've got suggestions, I've got an open ear.
