Here is the update on her beautiful bedroom. You first saw it here and here
where I talked about my design process that led to the final design concept for Ms. B's bedroom.
A couple of days ago Ms. B and I went to my upholsterer's workroom to make sure Ms. B's sofa would be as comfortable as she imagined (it is) . Her ottoman looks fantastic recovered in the flame stitch!
Today we delivered her gorgeous Raoul Textiles covered sofa, her ottoman, her inlaid side tables (looking fantastic with her lamps that she and Mr. S bought in Paris). We are waiting for her artwork to fill the wall above the sofa.
Yes, these fabric selections pushed the envelope, but they really work together.
We're thinking that the next step is a natural sea grass carpet with a neutral area rug.
Maybe a shag? What do you think?
Their headboard and toss pillows arrived today as well.
All of the bedding hasn't quite arrived yet so you just get a peak...
Next week, drapery and artwork will be installed. We think we have bedside tables selected as well. I promise to do a post as this project continues...
A few other updates...
Giannetti Home is looking wonderful filled with Linda Broadfoot's gorgeous work.
She took some wonderful photos (I tend to be too nervous to document these events!)
We said good-bye to these two beautiful Broadfoot images this week.
They were sold and are now in their new home in the Hollywood Hills.
Tamerie from the beautiful blog A little of this that and the other, honored Velvet and Linen by giving me this One Lovely Blog Award! Unfortunately at this point I am too addicted to way too many blogs to select ten, so I give this award to all of the blogs that I have listed on my blog roll as well as those that I have been too crazy busy to add (but will soon!!!). My bloggy friends have been an incredible support and you all deserve this award.
Lastly, a couple of recommendations....
The Material Girls have a wonderful new (or at least new to me!) weekly e-mail called the MG Weekender that is a great summary of what's new in design this week. I am thrilled (and blushing) that they included my grass cloth post in their latest edition!
and realized that all of us bloggers are asking ourselves the same questions.
Here is the place where I can listen to three of my favorite bloggers talk honestly about bloggy issues. Thank you Megan, Joni, and Linda.
So what I'm I hooked on this week? I'm hooked on living outside my comfort zone and on you bloggers who are doing the same! Check out Julia's Hooked on Friday's party to see what other blogger are hooked on. Also, for the first time, I am participating in Melissa's Beautiful Life Friday party, because as a designer I know that life is as beautiful as we design it to be!
