So I took a bunch of pictures of the apartment today. Brian is working on a show at Fox and they need apartments and houses they can shoot as backgrounds for this crazy animation/photography hybrid they are doing. We're hoping there's some money in it for us if we get chosen, so we thought we'd try our luck.
Anyway, just like seeing a candid picture of yourself is the best way to jump start a diet, looking at all the pics of the apartment pointed out to me all the things I want to change about it! There's a lot of little changes I can make, but perhaps the biggest choice concerns the big couch that dominates the living room. I don't even know what color to call it...beige? grey? putty? Whatever, I hate it. It's a total non-color. I wasn't committed to even keeping this couch until fairly recently, but it's just too comfortable (and too much hassle) to get rid of.
Sooo...slipcover time! Since covering this giant will be a major investment of time and money, I thought I'd try a little photoshop magic to help me make the decision. But now I can't decide!
A dark chocolatey brown? I'm envisioning a short cotton velveteen...I'm also imagining all the cat hair...
A vintagey golden yellow? Maybe in a wide wale courdoroy?
A subduded robin's egg blue? Or is that color too trendy?
This bold turquoise reminds me of a vintage couch at my parents house, which I love. It would be great in tweed.
Another vintagey color, perfect for cotton velveteen.
Or, the standby, white. Boring, but it hides the cat hair and it's easy to bleach clean.
So help me! Tell me what to do! I live with a colorblind roommate!
