My white slipcovered couch is here!

My white slipcovered couch is here!

Remember when I told you I had ordered a new slipcovered couch? Well, it arrived yesterday! HOORAY! This is just a first look, but I promise I’ll be back with more.

(If you notice the glow in my photos across the floor and rug in the above photo, our Seattle sky was full of smoke from wildfires and the sun was glowing like an orange fireball through the smog into my house! It was really bad yesterday, even though there aren’t fires near us).

The couch was just delivered so the slipcover still has some packing wrinkles and I didn’t have time to fully set up the room or anything yet (thus the lamp perched a stool, ha!) BUT I was so excited that I couldn’t wait to show y’all.

This is the couch I have here. I chose the deep seat slipcovered with a bench cushion, 80 inches long in the Warm White Denim fabric.

The moment the delivery crew set it down in my living room I could tell I was going to love the simplicity and crisp feeling it brings to the space. I still have my dark velvet couch, it went back downstairs so we’ll still enjoy it there.

The new couch has the same washable fabric I had on my original slipcovered sofa, it’s just as wonderful as I remembered. It’s so soft and the white denim is pretty against the Benjamin Moore Simply White walls, too.

The couch is super comfy! It’s deep, so it’s going to be perfect for curling up but also not too deep to just sit and chat (and I’m only 5’2!) with the pillows behind you.

I can’t wait to put the room all together now that it’s here. (Of course I’ve been thinking about it for weeks, but it’s always so helpful to actually have the couch in the room.) I still haven’t decided if I’m going to bring my leather sofa into this room, too, or not, but I know I’ll be using a combination of my long time favorites in this room: whites + woods + leather with lots of textural warmth  and evolving colors and accessories with the seasons.

Courtney (my daughter and full time assistant for the past four or so years!) can’t wait to do a little puttering around the house this week. Undoubtedly we’ll try a few arrangements to get the right mix, so stay tuned for more photos and angles of the room!

PS. Get ready to pull out all your cozy layers … my yearly Fall Nesting series will be starting up soon. WHO IS EXCITED?! I am…I’ve totally enjoyed this summer, but the smoke is putting a damper on my outdoor activities so I’m especially ready to start nesting inside. :)

    I love it! Are the slipcovers machine washable?

      • Clara

        Thank you for letting me know I may buy something similar for my house since my cats are leaving they little dirty paws on couch.

  2. Tracie

    Oh, the couch looks so comfortable ❤️ It’ll be fun to see how you change up the room. I’m loving summer and didn’t want to think fall yet. But yesterday cool air moved in and felt like fall—lovely! So maybe I am ready.

  3. Linda Grubbs

    I love it!!! Looks like a perfect fit for that beautiful room! ?

  4. Debbie Keith

    It’s beautiful! Can’t wait for all the inspiration coming our way as you style your room! :) I also just wanted to say that your Fall Nesting series is something I look forward to EVERY year — it’s become one of my most seasonally anticipated things about fall!

    • Melissa @ The Inspired Room

      Ahhh thank you! So kind of you. I’m so happy when I hear there are readers who still look forward to the series! It’s my favorite, too <3.

    Beautiful sofa!! Can’t wait to see what you do with the room.

    It looks great! When I had younger boys, I vowed to NEVER get a couch with loose back cushions again. Every. Single. Day, I had those cushions strewn all over the den. It was maddening. So, I have two of the tan leather couches like your loveseat parallel to one another on each side of a fireplace. I adore them. Thanks for turning me onto them. With two huge doggies and three not-so-little boys on them all the time, I find they hold up really well. The scratches buff right out (I’m not sure how that happens, but it’s amazing!). I’d love to see your loveseat up there but you CAN’T move that daybed. If I lived at your house, you’d always find me there with a book in my hand or taking a nap. Anyhoo, we are moving right now and I’m trying to figure out how to incorporate a daybed like that! I really want one of those in my life. Can’t wait to see what you do with your living space. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration!

    PS. I hope your smoke clears out soon. We spent the summer in Park City and there was a lot of smoke from some local fires as well as the CA fires. Praying for those folks. It’s been a rough summer.

    • Melissa @ The Inspired Room

      I’m so glad you love the leather, it’s one of my all time faves, too! I think keeping the daybed at the window is what will save the back cushions on the white one from being smooshed daily by my dogs, ha! They use to do that to our old one all the time. My hope is to send them to the daybed and keep them off this couch. I say “hope” because 1) they have a mind of their own and 2) the two other members of this household also have minds of their own and seem to want dogs everywhere. But MY intention is to avoid dogs on it :). And with the daybed nearby they should not feel deprived!

    I love it too..very simple…speaks classy to me…enjoy…

    I absolutely love having a slipcovered sofa. Between the three dogs, the wood stove smoke/ashes, the garden, dust, life….it’s amazing to just be able to pop them into the wash for an instantly fresh and ‘new’ sofa! It came in especially handy recently when my chimney cleaning went awry….soot everywhere! What a nightmare! Looking forward to seeing how you style your new sofa and the room around it. Glad you’re ok with the fires!

  9. Lynn

    It would be fun to see you style it with different tables, lamps and pillows as “before” options and then a “final after” look. It’s a lovely couch that will make a great background to many colors and styles. Can’t wait to see more.

  10. Theresa

    Absolutely love the rug, will go great in our new home! Thanks for your inspiration as always. I know the blues vary, but any “aqua” in the rug at all?

  11. Jo,Jo

    Congrats on your lovely white sofa! Tho you mentioned you haven’t really styled your room around it yet, it looks fabulous! Nice bright white and oh, so crisp & fresh! I’m with you as far as being excited for Fall too! Loved summer but eager to just get cozy now and enjoy cooler temps. Can’t wait for your next Fall nesting series! ?

    It’s lovely! So excited to see what you do with the room! And I am also 5’2″! Short people unite! :)

  13. Cherie K

    That looks gorgeous… I hope the wildfires are finished now. It’s been a while since I heard anything about it on the news here in England.

  14. Ms Maggie

    Wow this made me think about slipcovers but decided instead to get gorilla grip furniture covers instead for when the grandbaby girl visits. Other times it is just us. Good quality. hate the smoke too. Got it at both homes.

  15. Kim

    This is looking great! I love the white against white ? and the textures of the rattan and leather…
