Before Christmas I was on a roll Creating A Space. My Living Room. Now, I mentioned that this is no formal living space. This is really a family room. And while I wanted to keep it fresh and bright my kids were worried when I painted the walls Benjamin Moore Linen White. My vision was to keep the slate clean and bring my color pop in with furnishings and soft goods.
I put a halt on this space once the Christmas tree went up ... but the back design story was still moving. And in came my TigerTiger.
I have some really traditional furniture in here that I wanted to keep, but stuffy traditional is not my vibe. I want it to be fun and make me smile when I pass by. Jim Thompson's TigerTiger adds a little whimsy and I believed it was high time I introduced some bouillon fringe into my world.
The fabric is LUSCIOUS. No kidding. It is soft and I stuffed a giant down pillow insert inside so that I know for certain there will be teenage girls sleeping more comfortably on the sofa while they binge-watch Netflix.
**Quick Tip** Did you know the best looking pillows are stuffed with an insert that is larger than the pillow? My rule of thumb ... 18" pillow gets a 20" insert. 20" pillow gets a 22" insert.
And So On.
Happy Hump Day my friends. I'll be back outside with the shovel today getting strong arms!
Making the World More Beautiful. One Room at a Time.
