Some new seating...


I've decided I need some serious furniture changes in our home. Next to source will be a gorgeous french settee for our home. I just love this fabric below and finally, I will have a big enough item to use it on! Phew! And double phew, my father has an upholstery business to make my vision come alive although, I'm not sure he will be so excited - he never quite understands my fabric choices and always jokes and says, if a client asked for this, I would refuse. It always makes me laugh. He saw my favourite pink zebra cushions that are also a favourite with my lovely customers he couldn't believe his eyes. Bit of the old school type he is - we have very different tastes! Kellie xx

  4. I would LOVE if anyone in my family had an upholstery business! However, I would be afraid that my love affair with thrift store shopping would only get worse as a result of the possibilities!

  7. I completely relate! In fact I picked up a desk today and my father right away said it was junk, but he didn't notice it had great bones and with a little paint it's going to be gorgeous!!! That Anne Chovie print has always been one of my favorites of hers!! xx Danielle

  13. Oh i love it when my father interjects with his ideas (um, career Navy, hardly fashion decor??) & my husband will offer advice (he's a soldier) & i've learnt to just TELL not ASK their opinion. Funnily enough, my husband only just realised when tossing recyclable waste at the tip, where Revolve (2nd hand furniture) was - at the tip!! Hasn't done me any justice in the "look what i've brought home to recover/ paint/ refurbish" department. Love Posie

  15. So beautiful print! I'm on flowers myself very much, all my house is filled with pretty flowery prints on courtains and pillows, and I think it's should be a good idea to refresh some of them for the spring. I should start now, isn't it? :-)
