The Sectional

I had a vision of this Kravet sectional.

In this sexy Lee Jofa velvet zig zag.

Until the Kravet showroom sent me this drawing.

Oops. Zig zags are no bueno on a sectional so...
Plan B. I went with a neutral grainy linen. Safe but gorgeous.

Add a Baltic Lantern by John Rosselli for Circa Lighting
and some Fiji/Barley grass shades from Smith & Noble.

Mix in a few pink Christopher Spitzmiller medium Hann lamps in
blush and an acrylic framed hidden stitch silk panel.

Throw in a few pillows made from an old ikat robe
from Uzbekistan and John Robshaw's Lanka.

Now the room just needs one of these overdyed Turkish rugs.
They take vintage rugs and bleach them and dye them kooky colors. 

Who knows? Maybe I'll try it myself.
I'm already doing that every 5 weeks anyhoo.


  1. The whole room is gorgeous. The paint color looks very nice too! Would you mind sharing the color?

  2. Grecian Ivory-Sherwin Williams. My favorite color. Dark white.


Tell me what you really think.
