Time to freshen the house for Spring!


I love this time of year when you can smell spring just around the corner.  March break is done, kids back at school and I always love to give the house a ‘pick me up’ this time of year. Over the last few weeks, new fabrics have been landing on our doorstep, or loading dock rather, and we have just been going crazy, thinking of all the new projects to do.Prints with wonderful warm colors as well as some pretty vibrant ones that we haven’t seen for a while.

 Lots of tapestry and printed velvets, which are my favorites! <p>The new Manuel Canovas prints from France in bright apple green and hot pink and the florals that look like you can just pick them right off the page are wonderful for accent pieces this time of year. 

The new silks from Jack Lenor Larsen and Scalamandre and just as wonderful and have me dreaming of some new drapes and bedding.<p>I  just redid some window seats that I will post pictures of, makes we want to go home and curl up by the window with a good book!  Amazing difference that just some cushions made. they changed the whole look of the area and made it so inviting! and best of all, very easy!  I had our upholsterer do them but it would be easy for any home sewer to knock off in an afternoon.
