Our new upstairs neighbor, a gay interior decorator, visited our apartment earlier this week to discuss the loud techno music that keeps us up at night (ah, San Francisco!). He was full of praise but dealt a backhanded burn when he complemented us on our "shabby chic" style. Ouch.
Time to paint and buy new furniture. I'm thinking we need to replace our Room and Board sofa in "putty" with something a little bolder and bigger. Does anyone have a new sofa that they're in love with to recommend?
