a pink pashmina wrap works great as a "slipcover" for a chair!
The biggest problem area right now is that my upholstery is looking dark, dull, and dated. And I am not ready to spend $$$ to reupholster or buy new just yet. So I put together a literally two-minute quick fix to bring new life to my furniture—and help me live with it and like it a little bit longer.
mushroom velvet sofa is dark, dated, faded, and clashing with new blue console
when in doubt, drape. and the white is helping me see that a white slipcovered sofa would look great here.
I have to thank Fran for her post about Steele Marcoux's cottage, which is where I got the idea for the long lumbar pillow!
And did I mention this quick fix costs nothing? Just shop your house; find a throw or two, a different pillow maybe, drape, and you are done. It's by no means a permanent solution, but it does breathe new life, color, and style into this room, and buys me some time during my slow redo of this space.
