I also love green, but I was sick of looking at the same green linen/burlap fabric blog background that I've had for more than year. So I switched things up and added a light blue/gray linen background to the blog. Very fitting for spring. I think I may switch up the fabric background to suite the seasons.. keep things "fresh". (If you read my blog via a reader, check out the new look!)
Speaking of blue, I created this guest room design board last week:
The e-decorating client didn't have any specific inspiration rooms in mind, but she did say she loves Kristin Panitch. Me too!
Again with the blue, I painted the interior of an armoire dresser for Slate:
I wanted something bright and cheerful, so when you open up the piece it's like WOAH. Later I realized it looks very "Carolina blue". Oh well, not necessarily a bad thing in Charlotte, NC.
Amanda and I spent a couple hours yesterday fluffing our booth at Slate. It's looking pretty good if I say so myself!
Recently, I fell in love with this Mark Alexander for Romo fabric. It's so beautiful in person, but also so expensive (I always seem to love the expensive stuff). In case you're curious, it's something like $178 retail (but as a note, I always give my clients a discount off of retail on fabric). I thought it'd be perfect for a round skirted table I've been wanting, but not going to happen.
Not that you can really compare the two, but I also like this fabric which is less than $16/yard. Much, much better.
I think it'd work in our family room.
Are you overwhelmed with this post yet? One last dose of blue... the new color for our laundry room:
