A Decorating Change for 2012

A while ago I posted this picture of a red/green living room and told you all how much I like the color scheme. 
I have since painted my walls a similar green color.

Today I order these slipcovers for my pink floral sofa and love seat:
I also ordered 4 sage green pillows:
I am crossing my fingers that the sofa covers will fit! I think it will be fun to cover my pink floral living room in red and green for the five winter months and then change back to pink for the spring/ summer.

I ordered from and they had a great clearance sale. I cannot make slipcovers for the price I am paying.  The prices were so good that I also ordered six of these chair covers for my dining room table.
I was planning to make floor length covers for my dining room chairs, but these neutral-colored covers are going to work just fine and I don't have to do any work!

I am so excited about the possible color combos I can use in the dining room with these slipcovers.

DH just called me to come outside to see the colors in the sky.  Have you ever seen anything like this?
It is 5 p.m. and there is a pink strip across the sky. Do you see the moon in the pink strip?  We have never seen anything like this before!


  1. I can't wait to see your slip that sky shot..

  2. Beautiful shot of the sky!
    Those are great colors you picked for your slip covers and hopefully we will see how it all looks in the end.

  3. Zoey-love green. I'm sure you will love it, too!
    I have recently noticed lots of stripes like that in the sky. They are called jet trails. If you google it, you'll discover some scientists think they might be altering the weather. I don't know about all that, but they make for very interesting photos!

  4. I hope your slip covers fit. I remember years ago they offered so many that it was not a problem to find things but seems like they don't offer much anymore. Wish they did. I think it will look wonderful together.

  5. Can't wait to see that color change Zoey. The green looks great with the deep red.


  6. Hi Deb, thanks for stopping by.

    Betty, I am just hoping they fit and I did not waste all of money. I can't return them if they don't.

    Sissy, I thought that reminded me of a jet trail! I have never heard of them before. Thanks for the info.

    I hope so, too! Because they were clearance priced, I can't return them if they don't.

    I hope I can show you soon.

  7. I think I told you a few months ago we had a sure fit sofa cover-more of a canvas, but red. I also wanted to see if I could live with a red sofa and I loved it. Good luck. Pretty dining chair covers too.
    I know that is some kind of cloud formation-super cool and pretty. Glad you captured it!

  8. I love those color combinations. I have no fear whatever you pick will be beautiful. I might have to check out that sofa place.

  9. I LOVE those colors together...looks so rich and inviting! Can't wait to see it all come together!
