Chair & Pillow Fabric for the Master

6

02.6.11

So, I know that you may have forgotten that I’m working slowly away at finishing our master bedroom… it has been a while since I’ve talked about it! I’m happy to say that I have made some headway! I found this cute grey and white chair at Homesense, along with the throw with the ruffled edges, but I wanted a pillow to add some interest. So, today I went fabric scouting in Gastown, at the stores that are only open to the trade, and came home happy! The fabric laying on the seat is one of the samples I picked up today… it’s a Thomaspaul fabric.

The mauve pillow in this photo sits on our bed amongst all the grey. It was the jumping off point for our master bedroom. I’m adding some of my Faux Juju Hats in a variety of colors and sizes on the wall above the chair to add some more colour and texture to the room. I like how the shape of the pillow will be mimicked on the wall. Once I get them hung I will do a reveal of that corner of the master bedroom… one step at a time right? : )

For those of you that don’t want to make one yourself you can now also buy my Faux JuJu Hats on my Etsy site!

Etsy Find: Ono Designs Maui

Before we left for our holiday to Maui, I did my research on gluten-free friendly places to eat, and treat! One of the hot spots on my radar was Ono Gelato. Turns out that they make the best gelato ever! While we sat and indulged in the gelato and air conditioning, some other items caught my eye. Aprons and bags in beautiful colors and designs were tempting me from the back wall. I was told that the owner (originally from Victoria) makes all of them and sells them on her Etsy store, Ono Designs Maui! I bought the turquoise sling bag that was calling my name, and I’m hoping that the warm, cheery pattern will bring a little spring to the Westcoast here very soon!

Fabric Shopping

15.1.11

I got a little break from the action today, thanks to my mother in law, and ran out to Fabricana to check out what’s happening in the world of fabric. I need to make some covers for the pillow inserts that lay naked in a bag hidden in my closet. I fell in love with these fabrics as soon as I saw them and I’m not surprised, since they’re designed by DwellStudio! Turns out that they have teamed up with Robert Allen to produce their beautiful designs and I’m loving them. Now maybe you have known about this for quite some time, but I often ignore things like fabric until I need some. So, it was a great surprise for me!

I’m absolutely loving this new Peacock Azure pillow. It would certainly bring a pop of color on the white slip covers in our family room! Hmm, now if only they had this at the fabric store!

If you’re on the hunt for design inspiration, like me, or want to see the behind the scenes action at DwellStudio then you should check out their blog. Makes me think that it’s been too long since my last visit to NY!
