Pondering . . . A Change

I can’t stop thinking about slipcovering my living room sofa.

But what color to chose?

This morning I laid out two different scrap pieces of fabric in hopes that a visual would help me make a decision.

On the left: linen like fabric in off-white/tan.

On the right: cotton duck in white.

What do you think?

(I think I like the left side better, not as stark?)


  1. Oh how exciting! I can't wait to see it and I think I agree with you about the color on the left. It looks nice with the rug. Good luck.

  2. Well, Robin, it looks like you knew the answer all along. I agree with you and the rest of the commenters . . . left it is.

    I totally want to slip cover mine. I bought those slipcovers you put over your couch but the kids just pull the tuck out and it looks like I have garbage bags laying over my sofa. Maybe you will inspire me once again.

    Good luck. Can't wait to see the results!


  3. How exciting! I think the left one definitely works better with the rug. Are you going to sew it yourself?

  4. Hey Robin, I vote left too. I also wanted to let you know about the paint color in my room that you asked about. The company doesn't make that shade anymore(of course). I did a little research to try and match it because it needs a fresh coat. I haven't found an eco-friendly brand yet, but I did find One-Coat Kilz Sparkling Cider or number LO517. Best of luck.

  5. I like the the left one better, I agree the white is a little stark.

  6. oh yes - the warmer off white will be lovely. I can't wait to see what you come up with!


I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
