Remember I splashed out and treated myself to some rather special fabrics? Well they all arrived and are even more beautiful in the flesh. I've had them strategically positioned in my studio so I catch a little glimpse as I pass by. Naturally I was tempted to dive straight in but, no, I've been good.

Until last night. We had the confirmation that the work is going to start on the house on Monday and even though they envisage it all taking about 8 weeks, I obviously needed to make sure that the cushions would be ready in time. Obviously.

I picked out one of Pippijoe's and decided they went really well with the Ink & Spindle ones I'd bought from M is for Make. Maybe it's something to do with them both being our Antipodean friends. What's more they work so beautifully with the Orla wallpaper that I had chosen.

I knew it was a bit of a gamble as things never look quite the same in the flesh as they do on the screen and they weren't cheap...worth every penny, might I just add, but alot if it wasn't right. But I am chuffed to bits with how the feel of this room is coming together. I'm just going to have to wait a while before it resembles my mood board, however.

I guess that gives me time to make a few more then.
