One thing lead to another

One thing lead to another. Gustav, the neighbor cat, stepped all over the white cover of the chair with his really dirty feet…The cover can be washed in the washing-machine. The above one is the one that has shrunk in laundry and is almost impossible to get onto the chair after laundry.

Had to remove the cover and change to another one.

I’ve got four covers for this chair. Two white, one grey, and one dark-blue with flower-pattern. I also had two carpets, one blue and one multicolored. The shrunk, white one I might have to get rid of after washing it once more. Which one should I use this time?

Didn’t really want to change to the grey cover. That is SO winter to me. Also didn’t want to change to the multicolored carpet. That is also SO winter to me. I could of course have changed to the other white cover (which so far has never been used). But I am saving that one a bit… I also have a white cover for the sofa. Maybe I will make both the chair and the sofa white for the winter and then use the multi-colored carpet?

I wanted to use the blue cover with flower-pattern as I’ve used that one very little (because it clashes with the blue carpet…). When I put it onto the chair, I remembered why I have almost never used it, particularly not with the blue carpet which was on now.

The two blue colors of the chair-cover and the carpet simply do not function together. They clash. Neither does the multi-colored carpet go well with the blue chair-cover. So, I thought, why not get a new, off-white carpet? That will go with any chair-cover (except the white one). So I did. This is the result.

With the new off-white carpet the room changed character and became much calmer. And lighter. And more sophisticated? Carpet goes well both with the blue and the grey cover for the chair. Not with the white though I think… Then I have to change back to multi-colored or blue carpet. The color blue is difficult. Not all nuances go together. Because of Gustav’s dirty feet I changed both the chair-cover and the carpet. A bit of change is good sometimes. Also needed to change the pillow-cover in the chair to something neutral. White.

The carpet is fantastic to dig into with bare feet… Feet just need to be clean.
