Our Keaton is Here!

I wrote about ordering our Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams Keaton sofa a few weeks ago and I'm thrilled to share pictures of the big, beautiful thing. The sofa arrived about a week ago and it's currently sitting in the basement living room, which we had hoped to have primed and painted by now.  

Marc is beyond happy with it. It's long enough that he can lay down on it with room to spare. I wish I had a picture of him testing it out. I think he was envisioning all the naps he was going to take on it.

Now that it's here, we really need to get a move on with painting. I've never painted a room with a fluffy carpet before, so this is going to be interesting. I guess I need to tape the edges down, then put the drop cloths down and tape them in place. This should be interesting.

I haven't given too much thought to paint colors. Marc seriously wants this room to have a Washington Redskins theme. I told him we'll probably paint the room beige and then incorporate gold in hardware and some deep red or maroon in fabric.

I have one cool idea for art, but I don't know if it's going to come through. I don't even want to post about it for fear of jinxing it.


  1. Hellllllo gorgeous. That leather is perfect.

    Now I want to see your headboard!

  2. I'm in love with your sofa.
    It's official.

    We're planning to recover our C&B living room sofa in this sort of leather, becuase C&B no longer offers the Petrie in brown leather. However. . . this makes me wonder if we should just buy new. Does the leather feel comfy or is it plastic-y feeling until it is broken in?

  3. Love the sofa! As for the painting, there is a tool that you slide along the edge of the carpet to hold it down as you paint the baseboards. Not sure what it's called, but they sell it at home improvement or paint supply stores. Simple drop cloths work for the walls.

  4. SO excited for you....it is absolutely gorgeous!!! Love the leather with the brass accent...so classy!

  5. I love that sofa! I did an abstract in Michigan colors that I sold to a Michigan fan. Its fun without being too theme-y Can't wait to see what you come up with.
