When I stumbled upon this modern floral fabric with a mix of my favourite neutrals and aquas I knew it would be perfect for some new pillow covers for our living room.
I love the neutral base of our living room because I can easily add my favourite aquas, turquoises and blues. The white walls, white painted tables, white slip covered chair, and ruffled pillow slips give me the lighter softer look I crave and the leather sofa and wood dresser add the rustic element I love so much.
The pillow fabric was fairly expensive for my budget, so I only bought enough for three pillow fronts and used a heavy canvas from my stash for the envelope backs (with my sil's 40% off Fabricland card it worked out to about $5/pillow slip.) The new 18" pillow inserts were $9 each from the fabric district in Hamilton, ON.
The fabric background is off white with light beige, grey, blue, turquoise and aqua floral motifs. A hint of modern and the colours are so me.
Over the summer I painted this crate from Michael's craft store with leftover blue paint, sanded the edges and then stained it. For now I tossed some extra pillows in it but I may add casters and use it for quilts or throws.
We have a matching chair to the white slip covered chair that is currently in our family room that I may bring in here and put in place of the white Windsor chair. The Canada flag pillow I made also belongs in our basement tv room.
So you can see there are still projects in the works, but the very next project in this room will be adding the new frames I bought to expand the gallery wall above the sofa. It will involve taking the frames down, starting the spacing from scratch, tracing the frames on kraft paper and some wall putty. Thanks for stopping by!
