The White Sofa

I dream of white and cream colored sofas. And as long as I have a burly husband and dogs, I will have to continue to dream...

You know how I was going to be so busy this week doing my taxes and prepping for a yard sale? Well, I managed to be busy doing other things and I haven't even started my taxes, and we're not ready for the yard sale yet, so that will be postponed for a week or two. I'm so far behind on my blog reading, and I'm determined to load a bunch of pics to my new flickr page, work in the garden, clean house, have a family picnic on Sunday (Mr. Cheese's family), do some estate sale-ing... Anyway, I hope you are all happy and healthy and I promise to catch up with everyone soon. What do you have planned for the weekend?

Though I'd never actually own a white couch (they're dirt magnets!) I love all the pics you chose. So beautiful! Enjoy your busy weekend. I haven't done my taxes yet either so I'm right there with ya!

Ha ha - 'burly husband'.

No real plans. I did try to plan a little romantic escape but then it got too expensive so I think we're stuck here.

I do love a white sofa, it's my favorite piece of furniture in my home. These images are fantastic! I love how all the colorful pillows just pop out against the white background!

I would love a white sofa with a guitar on it!! I'm with you, would love to have one, especially after viewing all your examples. So perfect but so curious how peeps keep them clean? I have a slip-covered one in our bedroom and it's always looking dingy because of our small dog. Dream on is right. Hope you get lots done. Taxes not done here either. Have a fun picnic. We will be doing those taxes and yard/house work. It never, ever stops. / :
Have a fun time Marsi xoxo

I have an interior design site and I am interested in purchasing a link on your website. Your site looks great and I would love to be part of your blogroll. Or, if you prefer we could exchange links.


If this is possible, could you let me know how much you would charge for a basic text link. My site is located at http://www.genuinestyle.net.


Thank you for your time, I look forward to hearing back from you.

I love the look of white couches in Summer. I have read a lot about slipcovers that are easily washed. That's how they keep em clean! Ha ha! Zootsuitmama

All utterly sublime but that one - I think it's number 5 from the bottom with the cream and green is heaven! *huge sigh*!

Hope the tax thing is progressing painlessly and that you had a good weekend!

I got a mostly white duvet cover once and that didn't last long. If I didn't use the tape roller on it every. single. day., it was not attractive looking.

And since we love our three cats + tape rollers are not cheap, out went the white.

I keep dreaming too.
My issue is with denim.
The BF thought I was crazy when I proposed people bring light colored pants when they visit my house.

I want a white sofa so badly it hurts. I will probably never get one, as I'm the clumsiest, spilliest (so not a word), human ever!
