The Art of Transformation: Part 3, Seating

November 11, 2011 7:14 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Let’s talk about my favorite: the lounge, where guests can relax and linger over a drink and conversation. I’m going to show you how to create a fabulous lounge for your next party at home. We’ve all heard the expression “Mi casa es su casa. My house is your house,” but few people in their right mind stroll around spouting “me cama es su cama,” or “my bed is your bed.” I can, however, think of one instance where it might not be so inappropriate.

The next time you’re hosting a party with a lounge, why not borrow your bed (double or larger) for the evening. Place the box spring and mattress (leave the frame in the bedroom) in the center of your living room, wrap the sides with a length of fabric cut to size, drape several multi-colored throws on top to cover, and sprinkle an assortment of pillows in the center.

Voila! You have an instant opium lounger that all your guests will flock to, not only for it’s style, but also for it’s comfort. And you might just have the added thrill of bragging rights that a “certain someone” shared your bed. 😉
