The Sunny Side

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

Working on the gray and yellow rattan makever last week reminded me how much I love this color
combo.Style at Home's design editor, Christine Hanlon, has executed one of the prettiest homes I've
 seen with these colors.      

I love the traditional toile fabric used with the modern trellis.

The dining area and living room are only a step apart from each other.  To tie the two areas
 together, she used the same fabrics on her sofa pillows to upholster her dining chairs. 

And check out this etched mirrored door!

Little Things Studio

Friday, June 24, 2011

I was introduced to the etsy store, Little Things Studio, over at Design Sponge and I am sort
 of swooning... Kate opted for a  'do over' at 27 years old and dropped her corporate job to follow
 her passion. Go Kate! I love her confidence and outlook on life and I REALLY love her lovely works
 of {affordable} art.
I could design a whole room based on one of these lovelies! Check her out!


Happy last weekend of June!!

Rattan Glam

Thursday, June 23, 2011

A couple of weeks ago these rattan pieces were living in my clients parent's
basement and had been there for many, many years. 


She wanted new cushions made. We looked at several fabric options. She kept comiing back 
to this gray/yellow combination from Dwell:

Outdoor Fabric - Dwell Studio Outdoor Fabric - Fretscene Canary
{Fretscene Canary}

With such fresh fabrIc, I thought the furniture would look great painted.  I emailed her pictures of some
 pieces that had been dipped in some lovely laquer to sweeten the deal. Remember this post?
She liked the idea and I got busy.

I gave them a light sanding, primed them and then covered them in Krylons Medium Gray. 


My pics make the chairs look blue {??} which they're not.

They will be rolling in to Birmingham this weekend!    

I hope Grandma would approve!

I am excited about the new vintage hardare collection that PB is introducing next month.
It's kind of amazing what adding this little detail to an existing piece can do to elevate its look.  

They will be available for purchase on July 19th.
What do you think--do you have a favorite?
