Grafitti living

source

I think the sofa above is really awesome and I would do it in a heartbeat if I thought I could pull it off in my house. I think it would look silly in a suburban, new construction house.


The owner of this furniture, Pamela Bell, one of the four original partners in the Kate Spade brand, bought muslin covered furniture from John Derian and asked her daughter's class to come and decorate it.
It take's "kid friendly" to another level.
How's that for being cool?
I f you could, would you?

I remember reading about this. Yes, it was a child's Birthday Party, I believe, and all the guests were given utensils and instructed to Create!
What fun!

I agree, I love so many things that would just not work in my home. That's what Pinterest is for, I guess.

now by golly that is cute and I mean it...do you think those were Craig List finds? If cheap, this would be so cool outside by a pool..you could just hose it off from time to time and throw away when they got too rough or sell them again. Have a great weekend.

I have to agree. I think it is the coolest kind of cool, but don't know if my suburban 70's French Provincial ranch is the right setting.

Have a great weekend, Kerry!

I wish I were so Cool!! But no, people would freak if they came into my house and saw that. In my other Loft Life in NYC maybe!! xo

You got to love any sofa you could spill your wine on.

Adore these pieces and the concept Kerry. A big yes! In fact my head is already spinning. If there is one thing I can do while still laid up is paint!

Oh yes, but maybe not a John Derian piece - a thrift store piece I would not hesitate since I don't know ho artistic I can make it look!

Part of me thinks it is very cool and another part of me thinks it is trying too hard. :)

But definitely not something I've seen before, so A+ for originality!

Isn't this what chalkboards are for...?
