Chips and Style

It's time for a design project and I'm so excited to have some COLOR in the house. Our library will be losing the sofa to our daughter and her husband returning from New Zealand and nesting in California, which allowed me to go for something new and different.
I bid and won a Restoration Hardware English roll arm sofa covered in a Ralph Lauren linen in indigo blue floral...it's fabulous and will be very "Spanish colonial" by the time I'm done with it.
The best part is that I have a "friend" in the process...a designer who is in sync with what I'm trying to do. And who is she? The amazing Cassandra of Coco&Kelley. I love that she has performed miracles long distance before (I'm in Arizona and she's in Washington) and I'm ecstatic that she can relate to what I'm trying to get the room to feel like.
I just found the newest Hacienda Style collection from Pittsburgh Paints and am lusting after the colors. More details to come as things happen.
