Past Inspiration


Look at this seriously beautiful sofa Grace Kelly is lounging on...

All you would need to recreate this look is a vintage sofa, a roll of black and white ticking, some black fringing and a good upholsterer...I am inspired are you??

Love it - too funny just looking at ticking stripe to recover my slipper chair. Oh Grace is so lovely.. her biography 'Grace' by Robert Lacey is fabulous.
