Accessories can make or break a look. After slipcovering this sofa with a slate grey velvet, the pillows brought the earthy color to light. An embroidered, linen pillow in the back and the smaller, shimmer, linen pillows give a custom treatment with ribbon sewn on that has the Greek Key and monogrammed to make a statement.
An ordinary and old looking sofa with good bones should not be ignored! The white sofa is made from a duck cloth prewashed and given that Caroline Westbrook Look!
However, the blue velvet sofa is the perfect thing for the winter look this room needs. Combined with décor that is taken from sea glass and seaside landscape paintings. It's a natural. The color is perfect.
Fabric often is so costly, I suggested this client to go to IKEA and buy their drapery as yardage to complete this project. Using premade drapes has longtime been a trick of mine to keep costs down. LInen and velvet drapes make the perfect fabric for slips. Washable and consistently family friendly, drapes makes a cost effective alternative.
Having found my calling as a sewologist & design consultant many years ago, I am in a place where I want to share my passion for interior renewal. I create and recreate updated style with fabrics and hope to inspire others to do the same. I am fortunate enough to be doing what I love and want to share it, one home at a time.
