Here is the mood board I created for my living room which really does make it easier to plan.
I've chosen 2 different fabrics for curtains and roman blinds because I don't like everything too matchy-matchy. The black & white print is our Iron Flowers and the striped print is our French Stripes in Mango Yellow on white linen.
We're having someone come in to measure the windows for coverings next Monday so it's full-steam ahead with the living room. The painters are still finishing the windows this week - there were a lot!
So why didn't I stick to my chosen colour scheme when I painted these glass vases yesterday? (see tutorial here) I settled for "Sun Yellow", the only yellow that I could find in the White Knight Gloss Enamel range. It's just too mustard for my liking. If you like it, I will happily sell the vases to you. Pick up only.
So it was back to the op shops this morning to find new vessels to paint. This time, I will ask the paint shop if I have choose my own colour and have it mixed into the enamel paints.
Also, for the living room, I want to use these 2 fabrics to create patchwork upholstery for 2 retro armchairs; Marguerite print in Cottage Blue & French Stripes on Duckegg Blue.
The look is something like this. Please note this fabric is just draped over the chair but you get the idea.
Oh and my other big news is that we'll be participating in the Bowerbird Bazaar next month. I'm excited as I've never been to Adelaide before. I do hope there are some Thea & Sami fans out there who will visit us.
