So, remember these two stools I bought ages ago?
I scrapped my original plan for them and they are off to the upholsterer’s next week to be covered in this:
Zig zag by Alan Campbell for Quadrille (and yes, continuing in my navy theme from yesterday!).
I figure that not only will they go with all the other blue and white in my house at the moment, but they will also look ‘fabulous’ (my seven year old’s current favourite word) with the old sofa I’m getting recovered in a bright pink velvet (but that’s another story…). Blue and pink go so great together, don’t you think? Here’s an example using the same zig zag fabric my stools are getting:
This next pic is from a spread in Traditional Home a few years ago that I LOVED (still have it in a folder- for a long time this room was my vision for the perfect kitchen/family room extension- I picture the breakfast nook being around the left corner by the kitchen), again using the navy zig zag fabric for cushions:
Finally, I’m loving this dining area in blue and white. The room itself is great, with its gorgeous window, wall mouldings and shallow shelving, but I also love the pieces used: ikat wallpaper, lantern, french chairs with zig zag fabric, madeline weinrib rug. (As it happens I looked at this very lantern today when I was searching for lighting for two clients!).
I have to paint my stools before they head to be re-covered- that’s a project for the weekend that I’ll keep you posted on!
