Latest Painting Project – Bedroom Chair.

I particularly love the bluebell carvings on the back of this vintage bedroom elbow chair and I wanted to choose a fabric that was in keeping with this detail.

I chose Zoffany’s beautiful Rosetta linen fabric and painted the frame using a combination of pale grey and beige chalk paints.

The frame was then waxed and given a distressed finish.

A sweet chair that is perfect for a bedroom, hallway or sitting room.

Currently for sale – £255.00

Latest Project – Edwardian Armchair.

I immediately fell in love with this beautiful Edwardian armchair.

It was the intricate lines along the top of the chair and the shaped wings that did it for me.

The original pink damask upholstery was in a pitiful state and didn’t reflect the beauty of the chair to its utmost potential, so I chose a textured natural linen and a contrasting aubergine linen for the piping in order to enhance its gorgeous shape.

Needless to say it didn’t hang around for long, now Sold.

Latest Project – Nursery Chair.

I was asked by a customer if I could source a suitable chair for her impending baby’s bedroom.

She already had a fabric in mind which was Peony & Sage’s beautiful Fudge Hare linen fabric but she didn’t want to use it all over so I suggested a few ideas and she opted for the one seen below.

I chose an Ian Mankin Olive linen with a natural linen to compliment the Hare fabric.

So sweet.

Latest Project – Re-Upholstered Victorian Slipper Chair.

What drew me most to this chair was its beautiful shape.

A beautiful slipper chair with lovely turned legs on castors and wire frame that has been re-upholstered using Ian Mankin’s gorgeous red linen stripe.

All hand stitched.

I can see this chair with a couple of aztec or floral print cushions thrown on to compliment the stripes.
