The plush velvet chair cushion came back from the upholsterer. The fabric is by Timothy Corrigan for Schumacher.
Here is Jan's living room when we started...
And here it is now with the new Lee Industries sofa and chairs covered in Perennials soft indoor/outdoor fabric (bring on the grandkids--no problem).
I like how Jan's vintage bamboo chair looks from the back.
The blue and white pillows have different scenes from Schumacher's Nanjing (made by Liana).
And we put a Ralph Lauren East Indies linen stripe on the backs (Jan can reverse the pillows if she wants). The mirror on the mantel is from Pottery Barn. It's a good deal on sale right now.
The next project:
Jan's family room. Below you can see the Pottery Barn wool rugs have already been purchased (which were a great deal on sale and now they are gone--I warned you).
Next steps for a "classic casual" global look:
I'm showing her (with my purse as an example) how leather chairs will be a classic combo like faded jeans with a white blouse and caramel leather belt.
It may take a bit to convince her...but I don't mind. It's fun spending time with her.
Mindy Rosenberg designed the flowers. Her inspiration: "late summer, early Fall colors."
To me...they were reminiscent of a still life by a master.
Thank you for being here.
