In looking for some inspiration pictures for the chair I am reupholstering-
I pulled out one of the most gorgeous design books that I have and thought I would share.
I remember the first time I saw this book- it was several years ago & I was at Borders looking through tons of beautiful design books and noting which ones I wanted to order from Amazon.
I found this book about Scalamandre and opened it up and was in awe!
The gorgeous sumptuous fabrics-
Seriously some of the most incredibly beautiful drapes & valances around!
The upholstery and bedding are just gorgeous as well- with lots of tassels and trims!
There are so many beautiful things in this room-
and this room…
Scalamandre is a textile company- so this books shows their fabrics and details in use in stunningly beautiful homes.
I loved this book immediately.
Of course, the price I did not love.
So I searched Amazon, found one for much less & have enjoyed drooling over it ever since.
A thank you
I also wanted to say thank you to a sweet friend on mine-
Deborah over at Green Willow Pond gave me a blog award the other day
Thank you Deborah!
I wanted to highlight a few things about Deborah’s style and blog that I love!
I ADORE this bulletin board that she made! Love it!!
I LOVE topiaries & just look at these sweet topiaries she made!
She does a tutorial that makes it looks soo easy!
Her chain curtain rod in her boys bedroom red0 is so creative!!! Stop by Deborah’s blog –
-if you haven’t already- you will love it!
Back to the chair and those inspiration pics…
We got each and every last one of those (seemed like 500 of them!) tacks out
and got the seat reinforced.
I did have to get some new straps but after tinkering with the seat for a bit, it worked out.
So all that’s left is new fabric!
I love the fabric in those pics, they are beautiful!!
Deborah is such a sweetie! I love her blog and her style!! Congrats!!!
