With Maddie in preschool 4 mornings a week and Harry ever more active at almost 11 months, I now understand who the silly old Calgon ads were aimed at. Calgon may not be my thing, but I’ll take a bubble bath with my favorite L’Occitane fragrance, some relaxing music and a refreshing beverage any day. Of course, how could you not relax in this setting?
Not to be overly dramatic, but I literally fell off my chair the first time I saw those floors. LOVE!
It is often the little details that take something from good to great. Today, I was perusing the website of Liz Williams Interiors and noticed this image from a 2003 Better Homes & Gardens publication titled “Window and Wall Ideas.”
I immediately recognized this fabric (Scalamandré Aviary in Taupe), a sample of which I have in my files from a trip to the Design Center. The fabric ended up not working for the intended project and I sortof forgot about it. But, this image gave me some renewed interest. I love the band of brown fabric on the edge of these panels, and even think the small bow details could be sweet for a bedroom.
I did a similar band down my family room drapes in our old house. Unfortunately, the images are on a currently defunct computer that I must get to my IT person to rescue with a whole host of other missing data!
As I’ve mentioned before, we are on a decorating freeze as a cross country move may be in our future. But, this doesn’t stop me from planning in case we don’t end up moving. I am thinking a neutral grasscloth wallpaper for my master bedroom with the subtle blue from this fabric pulled up on to the ceilings. I’ve got three windows in the master bedroom and a triple window in our sitting room…..I am thinking this fabric would work well for simple pinch pleated panels, with interest added by way of a band of solid fabric.
Do you have a project where the little details made the project? I’d love to see photos or hear about it.
