Right now there is a white leather sofa in the shed hiding from my husband and feeling very lonely.


I did not kiss it on its way out.

      #1 Anonymous – Are you a monkey? Cheep, cheep, cheep????
      Or are you simply uneducated and you meant cheap? In any case you have no balls b/c you entered w/o your name AND your negative comments are not appreciated. Go away monkey.

      And what, pray tell, is wrong with an IKEA look? The IKEA look is really a softened version of the Danish and Swedish look of the 60s and 70s. I have lived in Swedish homes, they do look like IKEA homes even if the owners don’t use IKEA. it is blond wood, clean lines, LOTS of flowers especially in spring and summer, an soft curtains. The light in Scandanavia is amazing and it can bleach out those colours we might associate with English country decorating, the reds and hunter greens. The light actually has a yellowish tinge which highlights clear reds, greens and guess what white. Come the winter, the furniture is layered with darker colours to complement the warmth needed inside, but with the lightness of the wood and summer look never far away. So, roll out the IKEA look, and if you don’t want to actually buy IKEA, fair enough, there are plenty of really really expensive scandanavian stores that will sell you something robust that will go with you Krosno, Ooresfos, royal Copenhagen look.

    Hey Sarah.

    Firstly ignore the first comment done by an ignoramus.

    Did you paint the suitcase white? I may have some that are similar under my house and the white one that you have looks great.

    love white. love the cleanliness and and so little or well hidden clutter….
    and regardless of unkind comments, ikea or not. it is lovely and beautiful and you love it and that is all that matters! yea! jody/fl

  13. May I simply just say what a comfort to discover somebody that really understands what they’re discussing on the net.
    You definitely understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    A lot more people need to check this out and understand this side of the story.
    I can’t believe you are not more popular given that you most certainly possess
    the gift.

  14. DeAna says:

    That white treasure is making me very green.

    The treasure hunting gods are so good to you.

    You deserve it! :)

  15. SmithShack71 says:

    Love it. Totally inspired.

  16. Aw, this was a very nice post. Taking the time and actual effort to create
    a great article… but what can I say… I put things off
    a lot and don’t manage to get anything done.

    Is this sofa from Pottery Barn?

  18. Debs Sutton says:

    As usual this is just stunning.
    Why do people make unkind comments? I understand that “taste” is as personnal thing but if you don’t like something DON’T write it!!
    Ill mannered oik & hiding under the cloak of anonymity???!!!!

  19. antiquechase says:

    looks perfect in your space. I love the way you have styled that room!!

  20. Sharon says:

    It’s so cute with the little pleats on the sides of the skirt. I love it.

    I’m glad it makes you smile when you see it.

  21. Beth says:

    SO happy that you found your dream sofa and were able to decommission the white leather one that just wasn’t ”you”! We all have our version of that hated piece that just doesn’t fit.
    Good healing karma is coming your way :-)!

  22. Julie Johnson says:

    Gorgeous and simple as usual. Love all the white with the green plants and of course all your accessories. I still think you should do a book. You definitely have a talent for decorating.

  23. Sarah,
    love your couch, looks so comfy and classic! The whole room is so cozy and fresh, just the place to curl up and relax! I don’t really get what pleasure people get out of being mean, what’s the point! Keep doing what you do, we love it!

  24. jodie aka Mummaducka says:

    Now to just find a second one so that everyone in the family has a seat! I need 2 big lounges and a recliner and bean bags to fit my mob and their mates!

  25. sue austin says:

    I have the same looking sofa (and two chairs & ottoman)! Is your new sofa Mitchell Gold? Love it!!!

  26. Jane says:

    I love that sofa…so much in fact that we have three of them and some matching chairs throughout our house. We beat them up, toss the covers in the wash and watch the house sparkle when we put them back on. NEVER want regular upholstery again.

    Congrats on another great find. Can’t wait to see more.

  27. Natalie B says:

    Love all the look! I have recently bought a slip covered white sofa second hand. I really like the look of them. I have two small children so the covers need regular nappy sanning to remove vegemite prints, lol! But I too am never going back to regular upholstery.

  28. merilyn says:

    morning lovely sarah, you know I’d love it! … looks as fresh as a daisy! I need one of those slip covers! lol have a good day … Namaste m:)X

  29. Smaggle says:

    Oh man I’ve having so much jealous over your home right now. My house has my brother-in-law in the loungeroom and it’s a pigsty. I’m doing a MASSIVE clean this weekend. I’m talking behind the fridge madness. And I’m going to put flowers in vases and stuff.

  30. Mog says:

    I love it, the sofa, coffee table, accessories. I’m thinking of getting a similar style sofa. With my budget, it will come from Ikea. I like that they have slip covers as does my present sofa but between cats and an active grandchild, it needs replacing and new slip covers are not available hence the need for a switch. Sides Bemz makes cool slip covers for Ikea sofas too. Pinned it.

    I see you have discovered my Pinterest stuff as you have pinned a few. You were my introduction to the service and I am now happily addicted to it. Thanks much.

  31. Selby says:

    Ooh very nice!
    I like that sofa a lot- looks good for lounging on:) one of my firm criteria for lounge suitability- lounges that can’t be “lounged” on have no place in my house

  32. Sandy says:

    Hi Sarah – good on you Theresa, I couldn’t agree more with you, they are fabulous couches, I have two of them and right now I have tossed one of the covers in the washing machine and they come up amazing – such a practical thing with two grandchildren but, hey, who gives a rats. I would love to send Ignoramus Anonymous a photo of mine, they live in a beautiful white “beachy” house on the water on the Gold Coast and look amazing. Leather can come out again later. Well done, Theresa and I too love the suitcase. Sandy

  33. Catherine says:

    It looks like mine from pottery barn. No thrift gods looking out for me, thats for sure, but i love it just the same.

  34. Catherine Howard says:

    Regarding troll…jealousy rears it’s ugly head.

  35. That first comment…not very nice! It’s really shocking when people think kindness is not important. I LOVE your new sofa, you lucky girl! What a great find. The whole room is soothing and beautiful. Have a great day! Jenn

  36. Sharon Forward says:

    What divine photos such a lovely light. The room looks beautiful and you deserve good luck in finding the pieces you dream of!x

    Pretty! This was an extremely wonderful post.
    Thanks for supplying these details.

  42. […] Remodelista compared some higher and lower end lights, but even the “steals” out there are no match for the $20 price tag on the Craigslist find! I love the idea of hanging it over the living area like this. […]

  43. Joanne says:

    Great to see you back. I love your sofa and have one very similar. It is so comfy, we have had it for 15 years now and just needed a new cover, which we now have. Comfort is everything. Love it.

  44. Rochelle says:

    I completely understand why the womanfolk are happy in the cottage, very nice. No space for the white leather anymore, now that this beauty has taken over. I think she is a keeper. I have a white suitcase you now, inspired by you and this particular one years ago. I love how yours has worn though, don’t do the refresh.

  45. Elizabeth says:

    Please tell me where you got the lovely crocheted looking rug from?

  46. Melanie Hall says:

    It’s great to see you beginning the long and fragile healing process – I wish you continuing strength; and I know that yoga will help you, as it has helped me and countless others…

  47. caRols says:

    oohhh.. love this look.. we’re planning a ‘lake’ cottage of our own and love the straw mat … the lounge def my style… linen off white is such a gorgeous colour and the light fitting is fab… thank you for such yummy ideas……

  48. Natalie says:

    I just adore that light!!! Beautiful.

  49. imijvd says:

    i loved each and every little thing in these pictures, really great work

  50. What’s up, all is going perfectly here and ofcourse every one is
    sharing facts, that’s genuinely good, keep up writing.

  51. Looks lovely. Very fresh and beachy.

  52. Lark says:

    Thank you so much for sharing with us, Sarah! I certainly have no time to spend on saying mean things online without showing my name. Sad existence some must have. Anyway, thanks for bringing a bit of sunshine to all of us and having the courage to carry on. I happen to love your beautiful home. It is real and calming and lovely. Quite the opposite of bland!
