In a Raj

Don’t freak out that Emily gave this classical French style sofa an Indian inspired makeover. Marie Antoinette is not spinning in her grave. Emily was inspired by the scene in A Little Princess when Sara’s little attic room has been transformed with Indian decor, and named this sofa “The Raj,” which refers to a time when India was under British colonial rule between 1858-1947. The British began sending Indian decor items back home.

Who knew we would be getting a history lesson along with a funky old couch redo? I feel smarter already. Check it out on her blog BluBabes Create.
