New couch! White walls!

After a year of searching for an affordable, comfortable, modern couch, we finally found one! We scored an amazing (half price) deal on a floor model in excellent condition from Smart Furniture. The Blu Dot Large Animal Sofa will be delivered today! Our Eames Lounge chair (a summer craigslist find) will have a fitting companion and will no longer be crowded in a corner by a big hulking brown sectional. We also just finished painting the walls white. Now we just need a new rug, floor lamp, and coffee table, although those will have to wait because the vet bills put a big hurt on the decorating budget. I will share pics of the room in a couple of weeks when it is all put together. For now, enjoy this Big Animal sofa from Desire to Inspire's "pets on furniture" post series...

And you MUST check out this post from Design Addict Mom. Dreamy white interiors.

P.S. Dodge is healing well. He goes in for his follow-up visit in about 10 days and the orthopedic surgeon will tell us whether or not he will need surgery on one of his legs. The leg does appear to be healing on it's own, although Dodge's playful nature makes it difficult for us to keep him as immobile as he should be. Thanks to all of you for your kind thoughts and words!

It's good to hear Dodge is doing so well! You'd rather have Dodge healthy than a coffee table anyway, right?

Yay for a new sofa! I just reupholstered mine and I know what a difference it makes to have a fresh look. That photo with the cats is great.

Barbara, a thousand times yes! Having Dodge with me after his accident is better than ANY possession. He is quite the special pup!

I'm thrilled to hear that Dodge is doing well. I have been thinking about him...and you. And...how exciting to hear you have found a new sofa. I bet you are one of those people who knows exactly what you want and never settles for anything less.?. Right? Glad to hear everything is going well for you, sweetie. ~xoxo~

Nice choice! Love the kitties, hee hee. It took us 2 years to find a new rug when we ditched our last one. Such a process... *sigh*
