Her Lee sofa, which is literally 18 years old, desperately needed to be re-upholstered. We picked a great Thibaut herringbone fabric that looks fabulous with her oriental rug, and as an added bonus disguises dog hair (black and yellow!) really well. Even though the pups are not allowed on the furniture, as all lab owners know, the hair is everywhere.
Another new addition to the living room are two french doors on either side of the fireplace which lead out onto the new porch. The construction was completed last fall but I never posted pictures of the living room, only the kitchen and porch sneak peak.
