Country Family Room slipcovers

This was all for a client that just bought a house at auction and had gutted it, she was ready to pull it all together using the furniture pieces she already had. She was working with one of my favorite Interior Designer clients, Gloria. You may remember Gloria's quilt slipcover on her front porch.
We did two couches, a chair, ottoman, and a bunch of pillows.
 First couch before
Starting to show some wear.

Second couch before.. notice the flat polyfiber forms.

Chair before
Chair was showing some wear as well.

1st couch after

Second couch after. She used a brushed yellow denim on both they are super soft and snuggly.

Shot of the whole room.

Chair after. Chair had red gingham fabric used for the piping

A green ticking stripe was used for the piping on the couches.

Here are a few of the pillows we did. All the red floral pillows had a 1" pleat ruffle going all the same way.

Pillows....make such a difference and add color and finish off a room.

We switched out the flat hard polyfiber forms for 26" down forms. Down forms always make your pillow look better and more inviting and new.

Chair was out of a red matalesse damask with gingham piping. Matatlesse washes us great and is very durable...and doesn't tend to wrinkle as much as a regular cotton fabric.

Chair and ottoman turned out great!!!

Close up to show the pleat ruffle on the pillows.

The whole room looked great, Becca loved it! And I know she'll love it even more when her darling little ones get them dirty and she can take off the covers and wash them.
