"It's what every writer needs: a daybed - Vince Flynn"
I've been on the downtown express struggle bus with the main area in kondo for quite some time now. this is a freaking challenge for me, let me say again. hard. I dunno what to do with cinderblock walls and 20 foot ceilings and too much pink stuff. however, I am narrowing in on some sort of vibe that feels right-er. the next big purchase I've been clipping my coupons for is a daybed, to sit across from tigre and keep it company, but not threaten it's alpha-nature. at high point market, I found THE fabric that could possibly tie this room together -- at the highland house showroom, it's a plaid that barrie benson used on several pieces in her line for them.
so I've got this plaid, and now I need a style of bed that plays well with all the other congregates in the room. I've got enough legs, things are starting to get nervous. I have plenty of metal, and I don't need anything dainty, like French, or wicker. I need something that's sleek, but comfortable. large but not bulky, comfy to lay on and safe for dogs to dog upon.
most of me is thinking it's the SHOP HERE from room and board, but there's more options in my head than dem. party hopefuls, so who knows where we'll be in 2020. peep a few of my inspiration rooms, and some daybeds that are my go-tos for clients, and on my shortlist of selections.
