So lately I’ve been making weekly trips to a thrift store I found. While I was in the mist of helping my SIL find a sofa I was making bi-weekly trips to the store and kept finding things I was falling in love with. Of course since they were all at amazing prices all of my favorites were quickly going home with other people.
While my SIL decided to go another route and left empty handed from our thrift store trips. I found a little number that I knew would look amazing in my new office.
I didn’t pick it up on the first day. I wanted to go home and sleep on it. Really see if I had to have it. Well I did so this time instead of going back and simply seeing it gone I called ahead of time and had them put a HOLD sign on the piece.
The latest object of my affection has to be my new/old wing back love seat. It has curves in all the right places, which helps it look more feminine and totally perfect for a stylish gal’s office.
Of course now my main problem is what to get it slipcovered in!
Do I go with stripes:
Or do I go with my animal instincts and get zebra :
Or maybe I should go with some florals?
Or do I go more neutral and simply get a linen?
Originally I wanted to with this fabric, but at $30 a yard (I need 12 yards for the loveseat) it’s so not going to happen. I love that it a has a neutral base with the white and black toile, but then has punches of colors that I could use throughout the room. I’ve been searching for something similar and have come up empty handed.
I love color and mixing patterns and since the floors and walls in the new office are pretty neutral I wanted to have fun with my fabric pick.

The floor is getting a little redo with a faux wood floor in antique oak and the slipper chair and bench are no longer going in there. Oh also you can see my inspiration for the space is Rory’s pool house, which is full of different colors and patterns.
What are your favorite online fabric resources? Please share.
I’m off to continue painting the trim. So not enjoyable. I have three doors, 2 windows and a staircase to do today along with putting my living room back together and sanding a bookcase that needs to be stained.
I’m tired already.
