lately i've been on a reupholstering kick. not only is it fun (for me), i just love recycling old pieces and giving them a new and better life. it's a great way to get a custom piece for much less money.
my latest find from craig's list is a $100 upholstered rocker and ottoman set for a nursery i'm working on. it looks bad now, but it won't for long! i have big plans, charcoal ultrasuede with orange buttons and piping for the chair and the ottoman is going all orange. it's going to be fabulous, i can already see it! excited to share the entire nursery in a couple months, stay tuned...
i'm currently working on my first themed room, a lego bedroom for 6 year old ben king. at first i wasn't sure how to tackle this. primary colors aren't typically on my radar because they are too harsh and children outgrow them too quickly. the trick is to imply lego in a modern way. here are a few inspiration pieces for the project. i've got some great ideas up my sleeve, and can't wait to share this reveal!
design is a way of life.
