Day 9 Style Cure

Day 9: Tuesday, August 13
Assignment: Your Decor Pairing: Project or Product
"Yesterday, in addition to locking down a color choice for your upcoming paint job we also asked you to think about a decor pairing - a well-considered project or product that will improve the interior design of your room by fulfilling some identified needs, both visual and use-based. Now that you've decided on the pairing, you need to figure out whether is is something you are going to buy (product) or make (project) and then do your research..."
Day 9 already!

•  If your decor pairing is a product:  No matter what you've decided to buy for your decor pairing, the sooner you start looking into what is out there in the retail world, the better. Start your search online today to get an idea of available sizes, shapes, colors, textures, lead times, price ranges etc. Pin your product possibilities to your Style Cure board or bookmark them so you don't lose out on any good leads. This is about finding a range of product that all might fulfill your decor pairing brief - the goal isn't to find "the" lamp or "the" bar cart, but rather to start forming a picture of not only what sizes and styles are available, but what the low and high end of the cost spectrum is for the product you are sourcing. As always, feel free to share links to what you are considering in the comments below and ask your fellow Style Cure-ers for feedback.

Okay, so we're going with a couch slip cover which is both removable and washable. We need it to be able to be removed quickly and easily so we can have the couch bed set up quickly for any overnight guests. I'm also still working on the room layout. 
Taking me forever! 
Anyway that's my update for today. It's a busy one. (Technically it's Wednesday here and I'm off teaching soon!)
