Our couch is wearing denim!

You've seen a little sneak peek of the new denim wear for our living room seating here. But that's just a little complement to the real deal -a denim couch. This couch is fine, comfy and has a nice shape, but I hate the color!

Here's the brown on brown sofa:

And here she is all dressed up:

Of course I wouldn't take any credit for sewing this thing up, our house help, Yaya Tas, made this! She don't have much experience in doing slip covers, her forte is tailoring pants. But I guess if you know how to sew, all you need is a tape measure, some common sense, and a whole lot of patience to whip up something like this.

But I bought the fabrics and "designed" this thing! (--that's my lame attempt on trying to steal the spotlight from our uber talented house help / amazing sewer! haha) 

I love how the throw pillow has all the fun colors of the living room  -blue, lime, and yellow.

That's one good looking couch if I can say so myself.

Next on the list are those brown stuff in the background -dining table and chairs. I'm not even thinking about that china cabinet, I'm scared.


  1. This is way too cute! I love it! You have a great sense of interior design.


  2. I just got a free couch on craigslist and it needs a little face lift. I can't wait to post it :) Ive been checkin out other peoples couch re-dos.



  3. MUCH better. I am jealous that you have someone who can sew for you!

  4. Fabulous! Will it wear blue dye off on your clothes when you sit on it though? I have that problem with my dark denim jeans.

  5. LOVE it. Great job. You are so lucky to have such amazing help.

  6. The piping really adds to the design, Ilike it! - as for the sewing - WOW! I slipcovered a few chairs this year, and I have a new respect for the amount of talent this requires!

  7. I love the new look of the couch! It's such a fresh change from the old look haha!

  8. I love the dressed up couch its gorgeous, your truly amazing girl! Love the playful and contrasting pillow cases. BTW the tiles rock.

  9. Now THAT'S what I call a transformation :0) Gorgeous!

  10. Thank you! I know I'm really lucky to have someone who can sew for us, or else half the transformations here wouldn't even be possible!

    We don't have any denim dye wearing off our clothes, I guess we're safe as long as we don't lie there soaked in bleach. :)



Thanks for dropping by. I'd love to hear what you think! :)
