New Colours

 Hello & thank you for stopping in again today! I am sharing some of our new colours that we are getting together for a bit of a new look.
 I have chosen the silver blue tones from the colour in our vintage wool carpets from 1920's.
 As I have mentioned in a past post I had the two 1930 wing chairs recovered and although the chairs are a little different in style I think they make a lovely pair.
 One side of the cushions is in a Toile fabric and the other is in the same fabric as the body of the chair for a different look. I am waiting for a special order of the Gimp to finish the chair on the left but the chair should be finished next week. 
 My little vintage cradle is holding a doll quilt my Mother made for me when I was six ears old and a violin that was in my Family for generations.

 The seating area faces our fireplace for a cozy spot to sit and read a book or chat about your day.
I hope you enjoyed your visit and please stop in again..take care.
Hugs,


Wanda

  11. Oh My Goodness Wanda, that carpet is GORGEOUS!!! I would buy your home just for that alone! The room is really amazing and so inviting that I think I will just hang out here for awhile. If you need to vacuum, I will just put my feet up and curl myself into one of these beautiful chairs.
    I love your beautiful home!!!!
    hugs to you...

  12. I LOVE that carpet. How wonderful it would be to still be able to buy that! I can certainly think of a room in the Shabby Old house whose floors it should grace. Lucky you to enjoy it every day.

  15. Hi Wanda,
    Your room has all come together so beautifully! I love the carpet and the chairs and they match perfectly.
    Are you still getting wintry weather-we are getting more snow on Friday but we seem to get a few cm. everyday. This is way more snow then we had the last several winters.

    Take care,
    Carolyn
