I've had a bit of an obsession with blue velvet couches recently. It's not that I hate my Ikea couch. Actually, it's unbelievably comfy—many people, including myself (repeatedly) have passed out in it's sunken embrace. But a looker it is not. The brown slipcovers, which I thought would be so warm and neutral, just look cheap. You know what looks cheap on clothes but never looks cheap on furniture? Blue velvet.
Wabam! Blue velvet all up in your business. I'm trying to think of ways to ways to recreate a velvety look until I have some serious skrilla to fork over for a new couch (Dom will be a hard sell on blue velvet anyway, methinks).
Any other ideas for injecting some life into my couch? Making it feel like I have a classy, luxurious thing underneath my body when I fall asleep watching The Voice?
Also, tell me I should buy this pillow from Dwell Studio so I'll feel justified spending $80.
