New Living Room Sofa!

Guys, we got a new sofa. I know that doesn't sound super exciting, but I'm 30 years old and this was our first ever sofa purchase. I know. Crazy. Somehow we managed to score some decent hand me downs and just made them work up until now. "Find new couches" has been on the house wish list for years and I'm so glad we finally got one.

Here she is in all her glory in our living room. It's the 'Lure Sofa' from Urban Barn.

One step closer to ridding the main floor of all that boring builder beige. I'm super motivated now to paint and find new throw pillows to bring some colour into the mix. I've been browsing etsy for some covers and tonic living for fabrics (may attempt to make another pillow). What are your go-to sources for throw pillows?

And for the sake of keepin' it real, here's what was hiding over in the corner while I took the photo...

  1. I wish I could just live in Urban Barn...all of their sofas are so nice. We have a leather section from them and it has held up so well.
    Thanks for showing a little dose of reality too...glad we aren't the only family that has toys spilling out of the corners...

    1. I know lots of people love the leather for how easy it is to clean! I guess that's the good thing about waiting, you figure out just what you want.

  9. Love the sofa, and always, always love your keepin it real photos!

    We bought leather sofas when we moved into our house 5 years ago, and although they are awesome and wipeable (great with my messy kid!) I really love fabric sofas for the cozy factor :)

    Good luck with the pillow making. It's the only thing I can sew :) What colours are you thinking of using?

    1. I'm not sure yet what colours I want to use yet, Morgan! I think that's why I'm having such a hard time finding some! So indecisive!

  12. that's one sexy b of a couch. does a flooded basement = an insurance paid renovation? Trev's aunt left ribs boiling on the stove one day and then forgot and went for a horseback ride only to come home to their entire upper floor engulfed in flames! I know this sounds tragic but you should see how beautiful their upstairs is now thanks to BCAA ;) enjoy your sexy couch snuggles.
