Ben & Phoebe's Daybed


I recently helped my cousin and his gorgeous fiance {they just got engaged on the weekend} with the cushioning on this lovely daybed which they purchased from Cotswold for their beach house. We selected an array of brightly coloured exterior fabrics for the scatter cushions and a trusty navy and white stripe exterior fabric for the seat cushions and voila this is the result. I just love it and apparently they do too!!

Hi Janet, no we are not going to paint the floors in our new house. White floors are a complete nightmare to live with. They require constant cleaning. We may do a woodwash rubbed back kind of limewash sort of finish but I'm not sure yet. I love the look of white floors but with 2 children and 2 dogs I just can't live with the constant upkeep of them.

Hi Anna,
Love the classic Navy & White base with the addition of the gorgeous multi-coloured brights
(rather than the usual and more obvious combination of adding red & blue to navy & white)
You have inspired me (yet again!)
Thank you!
xx

Chloe said...

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment.
What an eye cathing stylish daybed ! This is so adorable! it seriusly looks awesome!
But I am so sad, recently I bought my Daybed from Ezbuyfurniture.com. When I first decided to buy a quality daybed online I knew I would have to do some research, compare prices, and find a company who stood behind their product. After doing many price comparisons and searching for a considerable time, I came across www.ezbuyfurniture.com. I was amazed when I discovered they offered so many high-quality daybeds at such low prices.
