Today’s reader request is from Bonnie: i saw the ‘casually draped sofas‘ but i was wondering about slipcovered sofas. can they be chic? i have very young kids and i love white and cream sofas. dilemma. so i’m thinking my only options are leather or slipcovered sofas? am i right? can you do an entry on this? thanks. I have cats not kids so I’m no expert on sofas that are kid-friendly but I think your best options would be as you mentioned, slipcovered or leather. I think you should go for a white slipcovered one – that way you can throw the cover in the wash with some bleach if the kids decide to dump a glass of fruit juice draw you some pictures on it. Below are some photos mostly of white slipcovered (at least they look like it) sofas with a few cream ones and a couple dark colours thown in for the hell of it. Hope this helps!
I have gotten a few reader requests lately having to do with televisions and how to decorate around them and make them less of an eye-sore. There are all sorts of ideas below – hide it within built-in shelving, wallpaper the wall behind it (or paint it black), place it on top of a hot pink credenza as a distraction, hang art around it (like I did)…..and at the end of the post is an example of what NOT TO DO.

And PULEASE for the love of gawd DO NOT DO THIS:
Alistair Graham, creative director of the new, small, yet highly creative interior design company Studio Public in the UK sent us a little taste of his latest project. A seaside getaway for a city couple. Can you imagine soaking in that tub? Not to mention that shower! It’s a fabulous sleek minimal interpretation with a restrained luxury. The perfect getaway within your getaway.
P.S. The photo of the sea scene is an artwork printed to the glass screen dividing the bath and walk in shower!
