Great Find and Inspiration

Isn't this couch neat? I found it yesterday at an estate sale for 100.00. Each side is 8 feet long and the entire sofa was covered in plastic slipcovers, over time it actually discolored the fabric, I can't wait to have it reupholstered.

While I love tufting, I think I will go for a more clean look and omit it here. I'm still deciding on staying a nice neutral color or a linen in a lovely shade of aqua.
I love these two examples of simple clean lines.

  15. Go for the aqua! I know that goes against the adage: keep the big pieces neutral and bring in color with the art, pillows, etc...

    BUT you know you'll LOVE it in aqua! :) And in my opinion, a nice soft aqua IS A NEUTRAL.

    And congrats on finding such an awesome piece!!!
