Working On



Here's a little scheme I put together today for a client who lives in the country. She is wanting a simple, classic look. She loves blue and white and natural but wanted me to inject some colour to liven the look a little. These are the fabrics I selected for her for some new cushions, curtains, blinds, recovering of 2 chairs. Her room is all-white and she has timber floors....a perfect backdrop. We are going to use a sisal rug on the floor in the lounge area and some colourful accessories mixed with piles of books in the new built-in bookcase.

I can never keep a sisal rug clean, but I love them to bits. Love this mix of fabrics, prints, and colors -- it is going to look fabulous paired with an all white room!

How yummy is this. what a lucky woman your client will be.the shot of strong colour in the floral is delishhhhh. there is always a gorgeous buzz when pulling together fabrics with different elements and then magically it all goes POW. I am a true fabricmaniac as are you Anna.
Love, mela

Kathysue said...

Ann I love every single fabric you chose, they are all so soothing and then the bright pop with the pillow fabric brings it all together. I hope you take picts so we can see the final results, Lovely,Kathysue
