Bring On the Red Wine: Party-Proof Patchwork Furnishings

I have a wise friend who insists upon upholstering her furniture in colors of the party food/drinks she serves most often. Regretfully, we ignored her advice when buying our immaculately white sofa, however in our on-going effort to party-proof our home we're seriously considering turning all our old fabric scraps into a stain-hiding slipcover...

We've been developing a love for colorful bohemian patchwork, as we continue to see more and more inspirational examples of bold gypsy style. I'll admit that at first the thought of imposing such loud color into our mostly neutral living room pained be a bit, as "restfulness" was the dominant feel I intended for the space. However, parties are a good excuse to liven up a home every once in a while, and the stain-disguising busy-ness of patchwork is certainly lively! Are you digging it?
