Have you been following Apartment Therapy's Small Cool Contest? I think it's great fun. I love to see how people create a stylish and functional home in a small place. This year one of my favorite entries featured a sofa covered in houndstooth fabric.
Kathryn's The Couch was the Catalyst. Man, that sofa is to die for! I love how she took a motif and ran with it. Love the shag rug, the acrylic table and the red accents.
And fabulous wallpaper! Kathryn has a business recovering chairs which can be found here. You already know of my love of yellow pops. I was so inspired by this place, I wanted to see how it would look with yellow accents instead of red. I hope Kathryn doesn't mind.
Fab! Clearly this home would work with whatever accent color she chooses. I could see hot pink, turquoise or cobalt blue used as the accent color. The red is totally hot, but if she tires of it, it would be easy to change.
I'm not much of a pattern person, but I do love houndstooth. I have some houndstooth fabric I've been saving for a long time. Maybe I should have a pillow made. Here's the fabric wrapped around a pillow. What do you think? Good luck in the contest Katherine and thanks for being an inspiration!
