Things to do to a white couch

This is a post about how to baby proof a stylish living room. They bought a beautiful piece of fabric and made a fitted sheet for the seat cushion. I think it's nice. Also notice the Moroccan poufs in the foreground instead of a coffee table. Coffee tables are the biggest baby proofing issue.
This is the same house tour as in the Woodstock post. I LOVE this palate, btw (mostly for upstate, but also for parlor in different proportions).
