I have a large collection of decorating and design books. I purchased this one many years ago and I still love it today. I have a totally black thumb. I love to design the layout of plants and gardens, but the thought of keeping them pruned, watered and fertilized is over my head. Thank goodness David loves yard work. If I wasn't married to the "yard guru" I would live in a condo!
However, decorating with "yard" elements and bringing the Outside In is always appealing to me. I love to decorate with things in unusual ways. This is my mud room that I have recently redecorated. I used a wicker porch settee with a garden elements to create a welcoming place for friends to enter our home.
I spray painted these pieces white. You really didn't think I would leave them black did you????
The flow and scrolly elements inspired me, with the help of some bunny magic, to create this new quilt design. It will be a "couch quilt." Don't ya just love to lay on the couch with a pillow and a comfy quilt! Well, this piece will be done pretty soon and you can make one for yourself.
Bringing the outside in, really does inspire me within to create pieces that are truly Easy and Elegant.
Stay tuned...more to come soon!
hugs and friends,
