Acorn Cottage {The Den}

 During the period of quarantine (Phase 1), J & I decided to do some redecorating around the house. I know! I know! We just moved in less than a couple years ago, but the den area always bothered me.

Initially when we moved in, we purchased a slip-covered sectional sofa. It was very comfortable, but it never looked "clean". The slip-covers stretched and never seemed to fit perfectly. 

One night, J came to bed and whispered to me that he had ordered a sofa to replace the sectional. I awoke fast. A sofa? Which one? From where? Which color? My head was spinning. We had talked about the navy blue velvet Paidge sofa from West Elm before, but I did not think we were ready for it just then. The pandemic makes one do crazy things. 

We already had the dark green velvet Paidge sofa in the sunroom and actually LOVE its size and feel. After a couple months, we sold the sectional and the navy sofa arrived. We couldn't be happier, though this started a domino effect for sure - a new swivel chair, a new ottoman, new pillows, new throws. You know how it works, right?

Here is how the den looks today. We added hits of an Hermes - orange to accent the navy sofa. I love the combo of colors and how well they play with the custom art work.

The Den Re-Do, y'all!


  1. Ohhhhh I love that pop of color with the navy. Nice chair & sofa! (my Mom just had her bedroom done last year in Navy blue / teal with pops of coral and I loved it - she passed on 11/7/2020, only getting to enjoy her new room scheme for just 10 months and 7 days and now I have some of her art and accent pieces from that room). Glad you all are safe & sound after Hurricane Laura - we had Hurricane Michael come straight over our heads cat 5 here in Albany GA back in 2018 so I feel ya guys!

  2. First, let me say that I am praying for all those in SW Louisiana whose lives have been turned upside down by Hurricane Laura. While the storm surge wasn't as bad as predicted it still did much destruction and will take a long time for so many to rebuild their lives.

    Love the new sofa and the orange ottoman pairs with it so well. I couldn't remember what the old sectional in the den looked like so I had to go a old house tour post. It did look super comfy but I can see what you were referring to about the slipcovers not having the right fit. Enjoy the new sofa!

  3. That's a handsome sofa! And you've created way more seating options with what you've done with the chairs and ottoman. I love that orange with navy, a winning combination.

  4. Good morning, Ron! I LOVE the re-do of the den! That navy blue sofa is just perfect, and the orange accents give it just the right pop of color! I love navy and orange together, even though they are the colors of the Auburn Tigers! Ha! Anyway, the den looks great with its makeover! Have a great weekend! xoxo

  5. love the changes, looks wonderful
