A quickie post! I’m feeling inspired by Nightwood’s custom Parker Sofa in flax linen with a stripe linen bench cushion. The style feels perfect for my old house; I like soft lines and rumpled feel.

I remember buying it when I was in 4th grade for a house in Amherst, New Hampshire. It’s been reupholstered a couple times and came to me in this calico yellow.

I’m thinking a similar reupholstering job as this Parker Sofa I found on Nightwood’s site. I don’t plan on leaving the back bare of upholstery but I like the two-tone effect.

Baby’s nursery will become our current office and we are transforming the first floor space to accommodate two desks, sofa, chairs, piano and ottoman. A few things like stripping the mantel and laying a new floor (it’s a nasty new floating floor) in the room need to be dealt with will probably be put on the back burner. But I can get rid of that old stove, paint the walls, throw down a rug, add in some furniture and hang some curtains.

Stay tuned for more…

    Hmmm, I’m not usually a two tone kinda gal, but I’m liking the feel of that… I rather like the bottom fabric, something in a heavy flannel or linen would be exquisite… Great windows with wonderful light streaming in!
