Reader request - sectional sofas

Today's reader request comes from Agata: I am 30 year's old polish girl leaving in Norway. Together with my husband, we're thinking of building a house. We don't have a land and a house yet, but for the moment I am concentrating on floors and sofas. Don't ask me why - just because :> And here is the best lime green color I have found so far for my best ever sofa :> The above sofa is not the size and shape I desire. I would like to have a huuuuuge lime green (not leather) sofa. And that lead me to idea of asking You girls of writing  a nice post about huge / corner not-too-much-sophisticated but practical sofas. I am REALLY hoping to be able to fit a sectional sofa in my new living room (when it's built) so I was stoked to search these out in my huge stash of photos. Since Agatha mentioned lime, huge and corner I tried to find photos with sofas in that combination (but only found a few in lime). The first photo caught my eye but it turned out to not be a sectional....but I adore the space and colours in particular so I had to include it.

Red, white and blue with a view

I'm real estate stalking today in the Byron Bay hinterland. I think the township of Federal perched high above the New South Wales coastline is just a hop skip and jump away from heaven. How about this renovated Queenslander-style home? Modern touches opening it up to the great outdoors and a colour scheme that isn't a patriotic cliché. Pool's pretty cool too but you'll find me on the verandah sipping a glass of white wine at the end of the day. Link here while it lasts.

Reader's home - a California dream

Peggy Dupuis (of Dupuis Design) wrote us about her recently decorated California home and I had to share it wih you all because she lives in quite the pad! The home is pretty spectacular, with breathtaking views, floor-to-ceiling windows, moveable walls to open the living room to the backyard which features a pool. YEAH, the parties that could be had at Peggy's house. :-) Thanks Peggy!

Quickie 2

Ever had the daydream of living in a showroom? I do and if I could I'd be moving into hunter gatherer and designer Jason Mowen's. His Redfern shop-front looks just as cool in person. Sorry Jason I was the one who left the drool on your window a month or so ago.
