I've completed several projects that I've been meaning to do for the longest time.
The spark was my newest sponsor, Laura & Kiran, and their line of gorgeous handcrafted fabrics.
Trust me, it was very hard not to choose one of their incredible ikat patterns or other lively prints but I've learned a very important principle in home design.
When your room or space is rather busy, (like mine) and already has a lot of color and pattern going on it's best to choose solid or textured fabrics.
And vice versa, when a room is more sedate with a minimal background & color palette, exciting and vibrant textiles and accessories really take it over the top!
So first up was my antique bamboo screen.
I can't tell you how long I've had this.
So, playing off the ivory silk of the screen, I chose a textured neutral for the bench we have in our entry.
View of the entry.
View of the living room.
The best part was that I was able to take advantage of the recent sale at Laura & Kiran and get these gorgeous high quality fabrics at 30% off!
And if you happen to need a bench, I purchased a pair, so the mate is available. Email me for details.
