Picking out fabrics for clients and myself is still one of my favorite parts of being a Designer. Soooo many to choose from and I think of them as little works of art, to be spread about a room and made to give off feelings of contentment and beauty ....lol, ok so maybe I take it pretty serious sometimes, lol :) But its so easy too, these 2 Fabrics were chosen because they work off the china pattern they are going to share a room with :) sometimes its the littlest things that get us inspired about choosing colors, but what fun it is :)
I went shopping one day, at the cheapest place I know, My Moms house ;) every thing's FREE, lol..... in all seriousness, I played on this chair as a child and I can still hear her saying " dont stand up on the chair Cynthia!"....what a hand ful I must have been :) but many moons later when I had my first apartment, this came with me. It goes to show you Shabby Chic doesnt have to come in just pink and white. I love shabby blues and yellows too!
More things Shabby yellow and some French thrown in too :)
lol, I dont know why I took this one and allowed my "cottage" sign to be crooked , lol, but heres a picture off my blue and white collection that wraps around the kitchen, i've collected so many pieces that it now wraps around into the Living room too ;) I'll post pics of the LR soon!
The colors are'nt exactly as they are in person, my camera was a little off , but this is a view from the other side of the kitchen ...
