Summer sofa...

I have been playing around with the throw pillows in my living room the last couple of days and I finally decided to go with all creamy off-white for the sofa for the rest of the summer. I thought a lack of color might be nice on the sofa for the rest of the season ~ there’s something about that off-white color palette that looks cooling to me. I also cleaned off the coffee table and pared down the piles of books to just two. A couple of simple changes, but the room feels a little fresher for them.
The one thing that I just know I’m going to have to move is my ancient stereo along the back wall. It isn’t pretty, but I refuse to get rid of it because the sound quality is so nice. It also happens to be perfect for this room because we prefer to relax in here with friends while listening to some soft music ~ and Sinatra simply sounds better coming out of that stereo than my iPod stereo. I have tried and tried to find another spot for it in this room, but so far I have failed. I must try again. Sigh...
