It’s where I zone out from the rest of the world. It’s where I rip open a bag of chilli chips and watch the crumbs fall into my lap. It’s where I secretly dribble during a weekend power nap.Its the place where I can relax in my maroon snuggy – without being judged. Its my couch.
I’ve cried. I’ve laughed. I’ve sung. I’ve done it all (ok…not all..). On my couch.
The couch, the sofa, the recliner – whatever you may call it – is synonmous with the home and more specifically the living space.
It can be used in so many ways – Sitting up right, sharing a cup of tea with the BF’s parents. In the fetal position nursing a bad flu. Sprawled out recovering from one too many tequila chips.
One of my assignments for Applying Soft Furnishing module was to research various fabrics to upholster a couch in a child’s playroom – where adults also sit. SUbsequently, it needed to be colourful yet maintain an element of maturity. It’s not the greatest (first time using copic markers)…but it passed! (see below).
Bathtub turned couch…such an innovative idea!

There is something so inviting and warm about this space. The couch fits in so perfectly with its environment. Bold print teamed with a bright tribal rug and mod-century table – so eclectic…it just works!

I love the old, worn out look of this couch. The deeply etched wrinkles upon the mustard yellow fabric just makes you want to sink into it (preferably with a hot milo!). If this couch were a person, I can imagine it being an old, chubby italian grandfather…cuddly, wise and slightly humorous.

Who says couches are only for living rooms? Love the juxtaposition – gorgeous.

White + worn out leather couch…with a lamp, couch combo like that – you just cant help wanting to curl up with a good book.
