I’ve been getting fabrics ready this morning to send to various workrooms, and also choosing fabrics for some up-coming projects. This blue and white geometric fabric is on its way to be made into two new drum lamp shades for a client’s amazing lamps (seriously, when she showed me I wanted to buy some, they are gorgeous!).
Also this morning I picked up these two stools. I’m so excited about what I have in store for these, they are really going to look amazing. I had a plan ready before I even picked them up, and it involves fresh white paint and some of this fabric:
La Fiorentina in wine/magenta to replace the current fabric:
You might remember when I found this big shade by the side of the road. It’s a great quality shade and in perfect condition, and I’ve been trying to figure out where I could hang it, and what to cover it in. I’m now thinking of either this fabric:
Which I’d pair with a wall colour like this:
and something, maybe a long bench, covered in this:
Can you picture it? Or, another idea is to cover the shade in this:
And paint the walls in this:
Katana in Berry..decisions, decisions!
On another note, my seamstress and general vintage clothing lover sister is having a stall at The Way We Wear Vintage Fair in Williamstown this weekend. Apparently it will be full to bursting with all kinds of great fashion stalls and bargains (not just vintage but all kinds of treasures) so if you’re free come on down!
