Couch with Pillows

I'm in the market for a couch. Nothing soon- we're saving & waiting for our tax return but I've been eyeballing this one from Ikea (maybe the love seat that matches too).


I love the gray! I LOVE IT! It's simple but not black or white. Then I'd dress it up with some fab pillows. Here's a few of my favorites:

Oh yeah, I forgot to say that when you get your new couch, you and I can have a pillow making party! I bet we can make all manner of amazing things with that freezer paper I have! :) You let me know if you're interested! :)

Oh it's so fun to look at new furniture! Can't wait to see what you end up with.

Susan- Yes please! I'd LOVE to have a pillow making party!

Smithy- I know isn't the gray great! I love it!

Es- I know furniture "window shopping" is the best!

Okay Olivia, I have to be honest. I don't like the couch. I do like the gray, but the couch looks like office furniture. I can't picture your family cuddling up on it to watch a movie or play games. Sorry to rain on your parade. Don't hate me! I do like the pillows though. They are super cute.

Em & Russ- HAHA! I can see why you don't like the couch. I'm a fan of the really simple modern modular sofas though. I'm not a big pillow fuzzy fabric fan.

grey couch is a must. good call...

i just bought a magazine (i think better homes and garden 100 creative home ideas i will have to double check on that)....but i think you need to go get it from the store. im going to post about the magazine soon...but they had some fun pillow ideas that i think you can make and that you would like.

Olivia Carter said...

Em & Russ- P.S. But let's be honest if there was a cheap over stuffed pillow soft couch that looked nice & was new I would take it in a second compared to what we do have! HA!

Monica- Oooo! Yes! Please let me know I'll definitely check it out. I'm looking to make some pillows on my own for sure! Thanks for the heads up!

I love the color, but have to agree this style looks a little like office furniture. But I know if you had it, you would soften it up...like the one in RC Willie

Cool! New couches rock. One purchase I was more than thrilled to make. :)

Olivia Carter said...

April- Hummm... well, maybe I need to rethink the couch. The nicer ones are SO MUCH MORE expensive. So, yeah, that's part of it. Ikea ones are jsut the right price!

Debbie- i know... I can't wait!
