why we like white couches

they turn orange quite nicely.  i just swapped out my pillows and throws for fall.

plus, the more crap you can pile on a white couch the less chance the minions have of getting it dirty.  or finding a place to sit on it at all.  throw pillows are not entirely without their strategy.

on the left is the wooden spool collection.  for baby love.  and on the right is gideon’s record player and my new tea set from brasil.  the record player needs a complete overhaul including a new needle, paint, and speaker panel.  but it’s still pretty sweet.

anyways, happy october.

    My mom thinks I’m absolutely crazy for wanting white couches while also raising a horde of young children. But obviously some people do it. I want white couches for the reasons you give in this post…you can add whatever colors suit your fancy-of-the-moment. Is yours slip-covered? Any tips on having a white couch?

    By the way, your room looks beautiful. 🙂

    i bought mine because it was a floor model. i think $1200 instead of $3600. so i took it. and i wash it 3 to 4 times a year ever since. and eye spots with disdain daily. i think you can get the same effect as white with any kind of neutral, just without the stress. right?
