the white couch

from day one i wanted a white slip covered couch.
so, last year i set out to buy one!
then,...reality hit me.
i have 4 kids!!
it just wasn't going to happen!
so, i got my brown microfiber couch, and i love it!!!
why, do i love it?!?!

1. i can whip it clean with baby whips
2. it doesn't show the dirt that i'm sure it is covered in.
3. it's comfy
4. when i want a change, i change the throw pillows!
(everything goes with brown!)

p.s. i didn't completely give up on my white couch.
i did get a white tufted couch for my living room. ;)
my kids know this is my "nice room".

here are few of my favorite couches!

the osborn's home.
in architectural digest,

french country
i love the legs on the couch.

i love the tufting.
this is the one i wanted,
very pottery barn...

do you want a white couch?



  1. We used to have chocolate colored "suede" slipcovers- like microfiber. I *LOVED* them- wipes for small messes- throw it in the wash for bigger ones. I agree- everything goes with brown and SO much more practical with kiddos. Our next couch will likely be brown or slip covered (maybe both).

  2. I love the look of a white couch, but like you, I know it would not work for our family. :s Thanks so much for the visit today!!

  3. I don't know, I'm still thinking of slipcovering my couch in white! Then I can just take off the covers and bleach them, you know? But brown is soooo much more practical . . .

  4. I love the look of a white couch, but I would just cry every time something or someone spilled on it! le sigh! Such is life!
