Tight back! (see me in bunny).
See, my new sofa boyfriend is so handsome, subtle, unassuming, open minded, not racist/sexist/homophobic/classist, works a full time job and has time for hobbies and maintaining strong friendships...oh sorry, and is cozy with pillows :)
One of the things that really tied the room together is the Border Twill rug from West Elm. I got it on super sale and added a plush rug pad bc its very thin and would slide around. This is not a rug for folks with pets, their lil doggy cat nails would get stuck and this rug isn't up for scratching/burrowing.
After I set up the room with the rug I sat my tired ass down on the sofa, sighed, ugly cried and took a 2 hour nap on the new sofa. I wish I could share this room with my mom. Call her and tell her how wonky it was carrying the rug up the stairs and my reasoning the positioning. I really miss her. It blows my mind that I get to keep on while shes gone. Keep on keeping on. Move a thing around. Wake up and sleep. Life is amazing and strange.
If you get a chance and have the funds, I highly recommend David Byrnes American Utopia at the Emerson Colonial Theatre. It is an audio / visual amazing experience. Since seeing the show i'm on a big Talking Heads and David Byrne music binge.
"Skin, that covers me from head to toe
Except a couple tiny holes and openings
Where, the city's blowin' in and out
This is what it's all about, delightfully"
