i heart fabrics

if i were a dining room chair...i think i would want to be this chair.

over the past couple of years i've developed this passion for interior decorating that makes me all giggly and excited inside. we just bought our first home last year and i vowed to have no white walls in this house (you see...because we rented for so many years.) i've spent hours and hours searching for the perfect fabric to dress my antique furniture. fine fabrics make my heart sing! and my husband crabby. ;) he just doesn't understand why we can't cover the dang things in a sheet (ha!) but he always loves the pieces once i'm done. i promise to post some of my recent projects soon, but in the mean time here are some photos i've found that inspire me! i wish i knew where i got these from...shame on me! i'll remember for next time (they are all from magazines and decorating blogs)


this room is so very sophisticated. i'm in love with the curtains!!!


there's something so classic about b&w...i have two chairs covered in a fabulous b&w velvet stripe. simply divine :)
this chandelier is one i'm considering hanging in our dining room...i love it's whimsical feel

check out this decorating blog...it's one of my favs!

I'm TOTALLY with you on eliminating the white walls in our house. Slowly, they are getting their Requiem.
