• Tell Your Friends

Greetings from Los Angeles. I’m here with my colleague, Liz, attending the Design Bloggers Conference, so if any of you readers are also here, please do say hi! I’ll make it easy for you. Tomorrow, I’ll probably be wearing a fun, fuchsia blazer that looks a lot like this. There’s no way you can miss me, just like there was no way I was missing this bright Cocoon Sofa from Richard Shemtov on Dering Hall.

hot pink sofa

I have a very safe, neutral couch, so it’s fun to daydream about something more DayGlo. I obviously love the color, but the wooden base, sleek curves and luxe tufting add to the appeal. As the Cocoon is made-to-order, it isn’t exactly a discount delight, but I still love looking at it. Or looking like it, I guess, when I put on my pink blazer. (Just hopefully not quite as stuffed!)

    I too have opted for a 'safe' couch. A beautiful Bernhardt extra long couch that is a medium brown color. I have livened it up with throw pillows in blue. But this couch is a statement! I wonder what my hubby would think if I brought home a pink couch?
    Have fun at the conference rocking that pink blazer!

      Brown and blue is pretty classy and classic, so I am sure it will serve you well. I went with more of a stone color with my couch, but maybe one day maybe I'll get punky with pink, boyfriend be darned. (Hee!) And thanks for your kind words about the conference. :)
