The decision has been made! The new sofa will not be in white, but in a wonderful medium warm gray! After months (and months) of anguish and swatches and upholstery quotes…and well, lots of stress – the final decision is a gray sofa. BUT!! Yes, BUT, since the new sofa will be a slip-covered sofa, I have the option to have a white sofa as well!! (see my earlier post about the great white sofa debate) I can have 2 sofas in one!! Sheer genius! I can now have the gray sofa for the cats and dogs and cocktails and movie-night snacks days…and I can have a white one for the no-one-will-really-be-using-the-sofa-so-it-can-be-beautiful-and-pure-white-right-now days too…Ahhh, total design relief! I opted not to go custom, but to go with a stock sofa as a temporary fix and focus on the master bedroom and bathroom (hopefully soon) remodel. I just couldn’t stand the thought of spending a fortune on a sofa that I wasn’t even sure I’d love once it showed up, as well as the cats, cocktails and such…so problem solved! Now if I can just wait until the January delivery!!
