This client knows how to have a good time, and when to take risks! Just had a meeting with one of my best clients and this is what we came up with for the main room in her new water front summer-house. The beautiful large-scale paisley embroidery from Osborne and Little was the must have fabric and what inspired the other choices. We both love the glam factor of the metallic threads running through the stitching mixed with the easy-living natural linen ground. The wide stripe from Noblis will probably find its way to the sofa and there are dining room chairs, arm chairs, game table chairs and ottomans to cover so we’ll need all of these fabrics and maybe even a strong solid turquoise (not shown). We are waiting on a sample of the raspberry and turquoise paisley called Nizam (see below), it pulls the pinks and blues together so well, I’m sure we’ll use it some where. I’m thinking pillows on the striped sofa, but I’d bet on it becoming more dominant in the room than that, we shall see. Stay tuned and I’ll post some interior shots when this project starts seeing some upholstery delivries. p.s. I just found this wallpaper from Nina Campbell that I think would be great in the backs of bookcases or as a backsplash on a bar with all these fabrics… pretty right? All the right colors, an unexpected pattern that mixes well with the others planned for the room, and isn’t it a happy wallpaper? light and fresh, just as a summer house should be.
