Having 5 kids, 3 little fur balls and a husband who refuses to take off his shoes in his own home, I try to decorate in an 'easy living' style. I love a 'beach cottage, french vintage, shabby chic, white on white' style, but it is just not practical for my family (maybe someday).
On a recent trip to the fabric store, my heart skipped a beat when I saw this lovely printed linen fabric. I could hardly contain myself and hurried home to sew this 'Throw Pillow' for our family room. After finishing this, I decided that my old throw pillows needed an update as well.
I was lucky to find some coordinating fabrics in my stash that day and made up some 'Throw Pillow Slip Covers'. I am really liking the light colors with the dark leather - it's a nice change. The other nice thing is that they come off easily for washing - a must have with my crew!
In case you were wondering, I am sampling some paint colors on my wall. I am still undecided, but I know that the old wallpaper has got to go. I have been avoiding painting this room, as it has very high cathedral ceilings and I am not looking forward to the ladder work.
This is a little peak of a sampler that I've been working on and I hope to have it completed soon.
Until next time ~ Suzanne.
