I'm in search of the perfect sleeper sofa for two.  Not an easy find.  I really want something like this:

I'm looking forward to presenting my e-design plan to my client.  Stay tuned, my friends.

In other news...
I took our yellow sofa to the re-upholsterer this weekend!  EEEEK!

See that vintage patterned chair?  That's going to the upholsterer next.  It's getting covered in the large leaf pattern.  Trust me. It's GORGEOUS in person.

Have a great day!
