A tiny little post on our new sofa covers because they are making me happy. In our living room we have an Ikea "Kivik" sectional that we dearly love. It was one of the first things that we bought for the house and I still think it is a great fit. However after more than five years of wear and tear, the covers were filthy. I did wash them twice a year but lately it didn´t really improve things anymore. I guess with twenty paws in the house this isn´t actually surprising.
However I didn´t realize how filthy the sofa was until we got our new pale grey covers and they were basically the same color as our old, originally white ones. Ha. The new covers are from Bemz - you can get replacement covers from Ikea but I didn´t like their fabric choices. Plus Bemz had a huge sale in November so we just went for it. And I am so glad we did, I love the new covers! So clean! For maybe two seconds until Ludwig first drooled on it. Oh well.
I was a bit worried things would be too matchy-matchy in here since the covers are now almost the same color as the walls. I didn´t really mind though because I was planning to go darker in here with new paint. That might still happen, but I don´t think it´s terrible as it is. But maybe definitely some new cushion covers? Time will tell.
