I love that! My inner Grannie loves it!pve
Beautiful. And I LOVE the way the art is framed on the wall.
What a special settee...love the orange!
I've done this a good bit in projects & it actually turns out to be charming and kind of cool. Who would have ever thought? The key is a large scale whimsical pattern in fun colors just like shown here. Love it. Thanks for sharing.
Dear Gaye, gorgeous colours! I love to see an old piece given a new lease of life xx
This is such a great photo and idea. I am all for recovering!
I love the colors, pictures, and even the fabric, but the only person I can see sitting there is an elderly Anglican vicar with a cup of tea on his lap.
Do we all have an inner grannie? I wonder- I love the idea of doing this and Gwen-I have too-and definitely large scale bold is the key.The Ancient- ah yes, the vicar-must have somewhere to amuse him as he speaks of great doctrinal import. As one watches in horror the sloshing of tea in his cup!
the room is a Tom Scheerer creation (thanks Dog Eared Pages for the id!)
all that is missing is Truman Capote circa 1977.
Move me back in time and I will fit right in... floral chiffon and a big nice hat!
Hobac- Yes! Slim Aarons photo I think-must check into it. HOw about a Capote redec?KH-or jeans-works with everything.
Glorious! I wish I had some old Victorian chaise to re-upholster! Just today I looked through my files and marveled over the gorgeous fabric Sigourneyin Jungle Green by China Seas (Quadrille) . Happy, fresh and fabulous!
The China Seas fabric s are all so fresh as you say- I have been working with a couple of them on a project and find them ALL exciting- the scale, color, and they do a lot in the reverse of colors. pgt
