While I wish I could blog all day and all night, work has been busy, busy recently so I will be doing quick posts whenever I can swing it. I am currently in the midst of waiting for a few final touches to come together on my apartment before I really feel like it is "done" (not "done, done" but done to the point of not being embarrassed if people come over!). Only took me 14 months...
One of the things I am currently working on is recovering this pair of Asian chairs I picked up from (where else?) Craig's List on Saturday.
I looove the chairs but obviously do not like the baby pink silk damask upholstery. That needs to be remedied STAT. I am thinking something neutral (probably black & white) since I already have a lot of color going on in the area. Here is a selection of potential Schumacher fabrics that I am going to check out in person tomorrow. Hopefully I will fall in love with one of 'em once I get the samples home and on the chairs.
What do you think? Like any of the above? I have been trying to use a gingham check fabric for a while now and haven't ever felt like it was the one. Maybe these chairs are the ticket? We shall see.
In other news, I have recently added this stool and MASSIVE (70x47 inches) epoxied canvas photograph to my to my breakfast room/kitchen/den area.
This picture does not at all do the horsies justice, but it's the only one I could find online. I am OBSESSED. It's from High Fashion Home for any Houston locals. There is some great art to be found there, especially in the oversized category (which happens to be my favorite).
I will take some pics of the breakfast room/kitchen/den area once everything is done, but don't hold your breath. Just cross your fingers I can make a quick decision on the fabric above. I chose the navy fabric to recover my Craig's List club chairs (which I should be getting back this week EEK) in less than 24 hours so I have faith.
Hope your week is off to a good start. TTYLaters.
