So, I lost the Topanga Mountain Getaway of my dreams, but that hasn’t slowed me down from decorating it in my head after all. I was trying to envision the perfect sofa for that space. When all of this just suddenly developed within me.
Last night watching Orphan Black, the bohemian style of Sarah Manning’s foster home made me wanty. It’s a warm cozy space that really does make you feel like you are home… it’s your mom’s or maybe even your grandma’s place. It’s inviting, your childhood collection of journals are upstairs in the attic ready for your trip down memory lane, and there is some sweet mint tea and buttermilk biscuits already out on the counter waiting for you. You can see yourself disrupt the dust in the air as you pass through the sunshine that pours through the old sheer curtains.
You fall onto the traditional sofa and think to yourself about how chic it would look in a modern context. You start re-upholstering it in your head, and then placing into your fantasy Topanga Canyon Cabin. It looks something like this.
So, now I must have. It’s just the perfect vibe for my getaway dreams. One of the many reasons why I have fallen for Topanga so hard, is because it reminds me so much of North Carolina, my home. So, a cozy cabiny living room with warm wooden tones and a kilim covered couch speaks perfectly to my deep desires while paying homage to the legacy of Topanga hippie culture. This is the sofa shape that I have my eye on.
Wonder if the dude would shake his head or if he’d be into it?
UPDATE: The dude just hit me up with a still from Orphan Black. There is the sofa that inspired me! <3 <3 <3
