After visiting Country Living on line, I discovered the incredible artist that is responsible for these designs. I LOVE the bright colors and the vintage yet modern feel. Her name is Sandy Stone. Apparently I'm having a real color crisis! I'm craving bright bold colors and lots of them! lol. I found inspiration just in time for my office re-do. Ordinarily I would have waited until it was all finished and show you the finished results. But, I thought it would be fun to have you along for the entire project. So...........now that you've seen my inspiration, I'll share the first purchases and plans for them.
These are some of the fabrics that I'll be using. Greens, teals, black and white damask, orange and pink. There are still a few fabrics I plan on ordering before making my final choices. These are a good start though.
I Love these modern lamps I picked up here. My plans are to use the fabrics in the previous picture, and cover them in strips of the different varieties of patterns. As you can see I'm starting from scratch here. Next up is the piece I bought last week at the barn sale.....
Its a ......., a..............., it's a chippy, peely, canopy thingy! yeah, a canopy thingy. Really I have no idea what to call it but I loved it and had to have it. I'll make it work! Hubby built me some new shelves for much needed storage. The shelves are really what initiated the whole re-design project. I have just sort of thrown thing s on the shelves and need to shop for the perfect storage containers. Thats the fun part of getting organized. The white metal folding table was another barn sale purchase, as was the teal cupboard door.
I thought it would be fun to have you all along on this design project. I welcome any ideas or suggestions So please bring them on! lol I will be doing tutorials on each project like the lampshades so stay tuned!
