If you can’t beat ’em . . . join ’em.
If you can’t fight it, go with it.
That has been my motto of late with the sofa.
A sofa that has been in my home from the first day we moved in 11 years ago.
Would I love to have a new sofa to change the color?
The answer is yes. However, it really is so very comfortable and in great shape.
But there is another However.
That “however” is that we talk about downsizing.
I love the configuration of the sofa with the custom sofa table and ottomans.
But, would it fit in our downsized home in the future?
Do I wait to see that in my future downsized home if this sofa will fit?
Yes, that seems to be the decision.
I recently got an estimate on recovering it and it is quite an investment.
When I was choosing the fabric for the sofa more than 11 years ago,
I originally wanted a white sofa, with fabric similar to the sofa I had in my previous home,
which currently resides in my sister’s formal living room.
My hubby quickly reminded me that there soon will be a grandchild and granddoggies
visiting often and color and durability needs to come into play.
Oh the practical decision won out to the pretty one.
So rather than work with colors to deter from the color of the sofa . . .
I am “going with it” . . . embracing it.
I spotted these pretty white and gold pillows while at Pottery Barn this past weekend
spending my Mother’s Day gift card from my son.
With 3 of the pillows that I already had on hand and adding the two new pillows,
I feel I achieved a great new look.
As I placed the pillows on the sofa, I realized that these were the exact colors
that I had in my room as a teenager . . . navy and gold. Navy blue walls,
gold drapes and gold bedding. It brought back memories with a smile.
Summer decorating is in full swing around here.
And speaking of full swing …. this is another mode of full swing in our household!

Oh the Boys of Summer.
So what are your summer plans looking like? Vacation or Staycation?
Mine definitely have a theme song involved . . . “Take Me Out to the Ballgame”
Have a fabulous day!!!
