This chick? Oh yeah, she’s italian. She’s beautiful. She’s one of a kind. Her name is Petunia and she is going into a clients home of mine. (oh, that’s right folks, i forgot to tell you all, homes are getting redone in LA and New York, all Emily Henderson style…..click on Design Services to hire me and my crew).
OH, you are judging her and me right now. But i’m telling you in the perfect space with the perfect modern shade she is going to throw everything off in a good way. She makes me smile.
And these chairs?
The one on the left is a Milo Baughman ($1300 down to $1000 for me) and yes its 100% dope, and in new black fabric. It was a splurge purchase though, so i needed to make up for it by buying a cheaper partner chair for it. At the same store was this $75 (down from $95) chair on the right that right now is HIDEOUS, but she’s the perfect scale next to Milo, and the perfect contrasting shape. We are dressing her up in nice new grey linen, with some dark grey box welting all over that mother. We are boxing out every curve she has so its going to be super tailored and sophisticated and masculine. I love that there are no legs and they are upholstered to the ground. It has an 80’s thing happening, but we all know that that decade is rushing back fast. I can’t wait to show you the after.
And that side table was $75 (down from $100) and is going on the opposite side of the room, next to the sofa. It’s shape is adorable.
And these two came from the Flea Market, both for $150 but they were rejected by the original homeowners they were intended for, which is fine because i’m going to redo them anyway and keep them or sell them:
The shape is really beautiful, feminine and regency, and i can’t wait to get my hands on the welting.
Obviously they are being reupholstered, and there will be contrasting welting/piping and i ‘m even debating doing them two toned, where the bottom is a darker tone and the top/seat/back is a lighter tone or even mixing a pattern with a solid. OR doing that top area in a different fabric, like a curvy stripe. The seats are going to be boxed and piped, they are really mushy and shapeless right now. I’m going to make them my dream chairs so even if i can’t sell them then they will live in my mansion of an apartment.
So what do you think? All wise decisions? Can these strangely ugly and inexpensive pieces turn out to be show stoppers?
Which one do you like the best?
Because i can’t help myself. This is my new little nook that i’ll never use, but i stare at it whilst on the sofa (which faces that direction – ish) and it makes me happy. But i think i want to reframe some of them so they look fresher and less ‘thrift store’.
I need to buy more ‘new’ things. Sometimes i look around my place and while i love everything, i never really ‘designed’ it because i can’t afford to, so everything is vintage and has age and mama needs some new and beautiful things to balance it out. Know what i’m saying?
i’m in the process of finding and buying a dope camera so i can start taking my own pics of everything – but good ones. The iphone isn’t really doing it for me.
Brian hates that lady thats in the middle….what are your thoughts?
Happy sunday, folks. I officially am not going to the flea market and instead staying in to clean my apartment, finish up the holiday guide stuff and catch up on my HGTV from last night. Oh and Dollhouse. I’m way behind on my house, stupidly intimidated installing the electricity. IT took Corbett 8 hours to do her electrical work and that is daunting.
All ya’ll who are participating in the ‘I’m A GIant’ Dollhouse redesign competition, who have blogs (or just send pics) leave a comment here with your link and next week (probably tuesday) i’ll do a big update on everybody’s house. It doesn’t matter what stage you are at, its just fun to see progress.
But for now, hop over to the HGTV BLOG where i wrote a pretty long recap of my Round Top Weekend, with pictures and everything. It involves my intense love of Texas, i can’t get enough of that state (the good parts, hello). And these are my new boyfriends. Brian’s cool with it, he also know they will kick his *ss, so he has to be ok with it.
We are currently in the middle of season 3 of Friday Night Lights that is certainly NOT helping my addiction to Texas. My god, that show is good. TIM RIGGINS!!!!!!
