flea friday

25 Feb

taking a break from the fabric today to show you lots of goodies I spotted at the Nashville flea. Really really loved the set of six chair in the first pics but unfortunately no space for them, hope they go to a good home! this last light fixture made the cut though, so excited to hang her in the dining room. off to lowes with boy now to see about some new wiring!

a little bit 80’s, a little bit perfect. another huge 54″ bolt just right for an upholstery project. I say slap this beauty on a headboard Sarah Richardson style.

looks just like this material from a former fabric friday!

she does great work & who doesn’t love Tommy. I dvr anything she’s ever done on HGTV, you should too

everything old

eventually becomes new again.  Terence Conran’s THE HOUSE BOOK from 1974 is full of interior ideas that are seeing a strong resurgence 35 years later. no wonder my mom’s taste suddenly seems flawless

Original Image: the exposed industrial pendant lighting & rustic table paired with contemporary chairs are both back in. the herringbone floors and huge plant centerpiece never stopped being fabulous as far as i'm concerned.

papa got us one of these big old bad boys for christmas. we haven’t hauled it home yet, but  please start brainstorming ideas of glorious things to write and draw.also as this picture makes abundantly clear I’ll  need to start buying weekly tulips to go along with our chalkboard, because they obviously go together.

i could spend some serious time in this room. so many good things in here. the plants, the super low cane backed chairs, that delicate chandelier, a telescope, and so so many windows!

fabric friday

19 Nov

I just can’t shake this velvet crush, and I’m betting you won’t be able to either. So I thought I’d do us all a favor and gather some goodies.

Let’s start with a fine option from the ever accessible Jo-Ann Fabrics

coffee, i want to touch

Now for some famous NYC options.  Housewife Jill’s fabric store has a beautiful online selection

mauve, for a pretty little chair

pewter on a dramatic oversized ottoman, i’m thinking it should be round

brussels mushroom you're pretty enough to put all over

And if it’s good enough for Project Runway it’s certainly good enough for us, so I checked out the offering at mood.

lots of contrast good of a few little pillows

subtle pattern in a neutral shade, yes please. for bedroom curtains

a little oomph, for sassy dinning chairs

the upholstery gods must be trying to send me a message, all of my favorite blogs have been showing me spots! it’s black and white not floral, so maybe just maybe I could sell the boy on it. Design*Sponge
