I've recently been chatting with a good friend of mine who is contemplating a new sofa purchase for their new home. She has 3 young boys. Yes, boys. She loves the light airy look just as much as I do but remember...3 boys. While a light slip-covered sofa is not out of question I also heard that she loves a blue and white color scheme. Light bulb. Why not a gorgeous navy sofa? If everything else is kept light and bright a navy sofa can be stunning and practical.
I'm excited to see what she chooses in the end. No pressure, though...(think navy sofa, navy sofa).
