A Cottage Cutie

I've been busy out in the studio lately and finally remembered to take pictures this time! This was my latest project A love seat, office chair and a cushion on a trunk ( that I forgot to take a picture of ) here is the before of the love seat and since I took the picture in the after noon you can see that the sun was shinning that day making for a crummy picture ... sorry Here is the office chair completed with the new cottage/vintage look, oh yeah that was the request from my client since she didn't want to do the fabric shopping she laid out her list of requests and I was to do my best to come up with something great! this made me a bit nervous cause you know how these things go ... when you are looking for something specific well that's when things can get very frustrating. I was lucky this time though. Here was the list

1~ she loves yellow so there had to be yellow
2~ a vintage look
3~ A cottage look mixing fabrics
4~ accent colors reds and green
5~ floral
6~ stripes
7 ~buttons please

I am happy to report it only took 2 trips to the fabric store to find this combination and I love love the way that it turned out.

Again a picture in the Afternoon sun sorry

since we had a variety of fabrics I gave her the option to make the cushions reversible so we did!

Buttons down the back!
so there you have it, a cottage cutie
I have to say these are my very favorite projects to work on. lots of colorful fabrics and the freedom to be creative. Don't get me wrong I love my white slipcovers I just don't have as much fun putting them together.
Have a great rest of the week

Changing it up for Fall

I love pulling all of my fall decorations out and setting them around the house but most of all
I love painting my entry way wall this gorgeous orange for fall. It warms up the whole feel of the house with a rich and full color.
another one of my new favorite things is this scent for fall... it smells like an apple orchard in my house right now.
