We are going to have an interesting time trying to fill our home with furniture. It's going to take us years to get our home fully furnished. Very graciously, my grandfather offered to pass a few beautiful pieces our way. Some of the pieces will need a bit of work, but it will be really special to have pieces that my grandparents and family grew up with surrounding us.
While recently on vacation, we took a quick 2-day detour to meet with him, my mom (the interior design goddess), an upholsterer and a refinisher. Probably the most fun is looking for fabrics...my mom's favorite pastime. While I usually like fairly simple lines, I absolutely love texture and beautiful fabrics. In fact, I've been pining over the following image since we first considered building the house. The fabric manufacturer has remained a mystery. Probably a long shot, but any hints out there? For that matter, any good ideas on great fabric sites?
Swoon, swoon, swoon. While not for everybody, I love the delicate embroidery. Then again, I have no idea how it will ever hold up against Mr. Big's buddies and co-conspirators in trouble. I guess we have that discussion to look forward to... :)
