Hello and Happy New Year Everyone! Cheryl Hucks, your Design Interpreter with fabulous news for my family–I now have two new grandchildren! Boy and girl twins were welcomed into my family two weeks ago! I stayed 11 days over Christmas with my family to help take care of the precious angels. With not a minute to spare, I stayed off social media and did not have time to write my blog. I am very blessed with 4 grandsons and 2 granddaughters.
Back to work now! Today’s blog is Adding Color with Slipcovers. If you get bored with the same home decor color, then slipcovers is one way you can change out your room’s color scheme as often as you like. It much easier to make or have slipcovers made if your furniture has straight lines. I prefer slipcovers and furniture in general that do not have skirts. Allow your sofa and chairs to be “sexy” and show a little leg! Plus, it is easier to vacuum under with no skirts and spiders are less likely to make your furniture their home.
I love this bright periwinkle color on this Veranda Magazine cover!!! It makes me happy and want to spend time in this room. The sofa and stool are a neutral color that can be used with any color. The slip covered chairs are straight lined. Most everyone knows pillows provide great pops of color. Good quality made slipcovers will cost about the same as having a chair or sofa recovered. My favorite slipcover fabric is Sunbrella or other “all-weather fade resistant ” fabric. These fabrics resist stains, can be spot washed or laundered in your washing machine. Hang to dry!!!! No dryers!!
Wouldn’t lavender or periwinkle linens, china and candles energize this gorgeous dining room?
Have a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2015!
