As an upholsterer and slipcoverer, it is very hard to admit this, but right now I am sitting on an exercise ball, and I like it! Inspired by a marathon running co-worker, Rory picked up a 65cm exercise ball to use at his office. He made the fatal mistake of inflating it at the house. Now all of us want it. I am seriously thinking about how our kitchen table would look surrounded by big blue balls instead of chairs. If I am thinking this now, that means 3 years from now, Pottery Barn will be selling them in white and gold. Meanwhile, I am rethinking my green plan for the aircraft carrier (that's the name of the boring green couch in our living room - see Cabin Fever Decorating.) I may have to go with blue. I do like how those Amy Butler fabrics look on the blue chair (I am pretending the bags are pillows.) Now there is a contest at Apartment Therapy called do it now. Nothing like a challenge (and prizes) to get me off the dime- and on the ball.
