It's Monday - Let's do B&A's

It's a two-cupper kind of Monday for me, so how about some Before and After goodness? 

I've been working with my sister to get her formal living room properly zhushed before an upcoming shower she's hosting.  Can I just say right now how much it KILLS me not to be able to do this fun stuff in person?   Oh well, getting to be a part of putting together a great room is still rock 'n roll.

Wanna peek? (Pardon the iPhone pics)

Wingback Before - Sad stuffing, and almost-coulda-shoulda-been-kinda-cool Missoni-esque fabric....

...and After... Make-a-me-SO-happy coral and purply-pink ikat!

X-benches Before (sorry, no real-life photo) - Now, you know I'm not the kind to turn a side-eye to most anything animal print, but these bargain X-benches needed to look....well....not so bargain-y....

So, they found some love in the form of high-quality velvet, and extra tufting.  Oh, the plushness of it all!

What's pulling this all together, you ask?  Why, a giant, colorful print by Cozamia, of course!

Yep, Monday's lookin' better, already!

WOW! It looks awesome. I bought one a few weeks ago, and I am so intimidated by it that I have put it in my guest bedroom where I do not have to see it :-)

The fabric on that chair just makes me happy and I've been craving some blue velvet lately so those benches are enough to inspire me to practice my Spanish enough to find an upholsterer here for some extra tufting. Beautiful.
