I thought I would do something very different for pillows this fall. I chose this black antique velvet, buy here ,and a subtle multi-color paisley buy here. I plan to make more pillows in the black velvet for my wing chairs. Usually I do a mix of fabrics so that every pillow cover is different but coordinated, a la Sarah Richardson, but this time I thought I would do them mostly the same. I think the black is enough of a design statement in my light living room.
Okay. A neighbor gave us this antique armoire for free--wasn't that nice--and I have big plans for it.
I'm thinking that we will fit the inside to be an entertaining station: appetizer plates and forks, wine glasses, napkins, table clothes etc. I think we will also retrofit wine storage in here. Anyway, I think the exterior will be a soft grey and the interior, well, I'm thinking something a bit surprising and dramatic.
I'll keep you posted! This should be fun.
