My New Sofa

Remember all the musical sofas I told you about here, well we got my son moved over the weekend and my old sofa in the familyroom went to his familyroom and I got to move the one my daughter gave me into my familyroom and play.  It was fun rearranging things just a little bit.  Not a ton of changes, except the end tables were re-positioned a little.  This sofa is a foot shorter than the old one and so it fits this small room so much better.  I also love the cream color.  This is the view standing beside the kitchen island.


This was the old sofa.


The cream color is just so bright and cheery for this room.


 I am using pillows that I already had.  The plaid one I made out of fabric matching the drapery header and the crewel one is fabric matching the two runners on the table. Since this is a really small area, I thought it worked better to keep the pillows coordinated with the rest of the fabric in the room.


Remember the runners, I really do love this fabric.


 The coffee table got a little bit of a new vignette.  I added a hurricane and one of the matching chargers.


 Standing in the breakfast area looking at the family room area.


 This is the view standing by the sliding doors looking back into the breakfast area.


I showed you that fabulous big bucket my daughter gave to me as an Easter basket, I decided to use it next to the desk area.


It holds all of my magazines.





 How fun to have a new sofa, it gives the room a wonderful change.


Don't you just love it when you get something new.  Always such fun.

  4. I literally ooohed and aaahed when I saw your the "new" sofa. I LOVE your home. You've made such good use of your space and its beautifully done.

    On another note, I put a wire cloche in my kitchen last night and it made me feel very "Marty"! Now I've got to decide what to put in it.

  9. Your white sofa is way better than the one before. I love the style and color, it looks very elegant, with your pretty pillows..that's great great about white, such versatility! The bucket is terrific and I'm loving it with the magazines, I'd like something like that next to the fire place with magazines too, on our den, where all the reading goes on. Thank you for your lovely and kind comments on my stained glass, sky-light. Hugs,

    1. The coffee table was made by Thomasville and I bought it about 15 yrs ago. I love that it has 4 little benches that slide under it so you can have some much needed extra seating in a second. One of my favorite pieces.

  37. Marty, thanks for showing your pretty sofa at Your Cozy Home Party. The sofa looks great with the special decorating touches you have done already. My favorite spot in the room is the wall behind the new sofa. The arrangement of the mirror, pictures and the flowers in the wall vase look very classic. I like cozy homes and you definitely have one!!-------------Shannon
