Good bones. Good lines. Nice wood and brass.

I flirted with lots of fabrics.

But I have always loved blue sofas. Navy blue is a neutral in my book.

So I set off looking for fabric.

Trial run was nice color, wrong texture.

But I found the right one.

And here she is now.

(Sorry, no sunlight in Austin now for good photos)

  1. That looks AWESOME. Now time for some throw pillows.
    Snowing in Portland today. Highs have been in the 30s.

  2. Anyway of letting me know what the fabric is on your sofa. I have a sofa I’m debating reupholstering either in navy velvet or another navy fabric, and yours seems so pretty. Thanks!

    • Hi Jenny! It’s Covington Ibiza fabric in Deep Sea. I highly recommend! The blue and black threads provide great depth. the fabric has a great feel. Best of all, it’s half off right now at JoAnn’s! Good luck!
