I am amazed that the first week of August is over. Soon I will be drowning in college shopping and begging the nurse at the pediatrician’s office to let my youngest in for her annual back-to-school physical that I forgot to schedule.
I did do a few constructive things this summer. In my Summer Fabrics post this June (see here), I found some bright and beachy fabrics that I loved and used ~
I recovered two x-stools from Target, in my FAVE Stoheim “Canton” coral and blue fabric.
And made a beach bathroom curtain out of it too.
I have been in a huge orange phase. Using it everywhere!
I made pillows in an orange Duralee stripe and recovered chairs in a Jonathan Adler orange solid.
I spruced up old parsons chairs with an orange ultra suede, then backed them with a Duralee print.
I added new pillows to a Fire Island home in a Robert Allen bathing suit pattern and an orange chevron stripe.
A navy crab fabric with…
a wide yellow and white stripe…
became eight new pillows for a beach cottage.
I recovered two slipper chairs with this Kravet pink paisley,
and used a pink geometric on two x-stools for additional seating in a living room.
This blue and white textured chevron stripe
looks adorable on the back of two couches.
A cream herringbone solid became
the perfect roman shade with a beautiful Samuels & Sons turquoise ribbon trim.
A beachy Lily Pulitzer floral (right) and a Thom Filicia dot pattern were PERFECT for
new pillows in a cozy blue and orange office.
The rest of August = relax.
