Fast forward 5 years and 2 toddlers later (don't forget the dog), the need for a darker color is a necessity.
Because I am
A lot of you awesome girls are great seamstresses. But I doubt I can make a slipcover with fabric glue, so I'm am going the purchase route.
Believe me when I say I have spent HOURS researching options online. It's just my luck that this couch and chair 1/2 + ottoman are BEASTS in the slipcover world. I'm going to have to purchase a loveseat cover for the chair.
I've narrowed it down to two options:
Maytex Pixel Stretch 2-piece Sofa Slipcover in Chocolate
Ok- so from what I can tell this is not a twill, but it seems like it's not a thick pique, either. Our couch has a courduroy feel, so I'm trying to get away from that. I want plain, plain, plain. And smooth. (btw--I know the bookcases have to go...so imagine brown couch with photo wall behind it)
My next pick that will fit a 91" couch is the Maytex Piped Twill. Just my luck it doesn't come in a Chocolate. This is called Linen.
But I feel like I would be OCD with the kids and food on this color couch.
My ultimate plan for this room is to lighten it up (window treatments + accessories) and cool it down (paint color) and the same time. Does that make sense?
IDK...my gut is to go with the chocolate brown.
What do you think?
