Gentle Readers, how bossy color has missed you! What with the blog migration (nearly finished), client projects (exciting), a new assistant (fabulous!), and, as you know, personal decorating trials and travails (often frustrating), life has been unusually hectic.
Let’s catch you up on bossy color’s living room. Here is the most recent “Before:”
Do you notice a new piece of furniture? That’s correct: a small sofa in desperate need of recovering. It’s worth doing, if we can select a fabric…
But I digress. Here is the room now, most decidedly “After:”
It’s a little intense in the pictures…oh heck, it’s a little intense in real life. But you know what? WE LOVE IT!!!
(The white shroud, by the way, is so that we can see what a white sofa might look like in that spot. Upholstery is next, for that piece and for “those darn chairs,” aka “the bane of our existence.”)
Let me remind you, Gentle Readers, that it was one of your own who left the comment saying that the previous incarnation “wasn’t very bossy.”
The truth hurts. But it must be told. That commenter was absolutely right. The room was acceptable (or it would have been, once those darn chairs were recovered).
But it wasn’t fun. It wasn’t that interesting. And it certainly wasn’t bossy.
