Fitting Day, Embroidered Fabrics & Selecting Cushions

This week started on a high with a fitting day for our project at Cedars Village, Chorleywood. The apartment, within the main mansion house has been undergoing months of renovations. We’ve moved walls, replaced the bathroom and kitchen, and redecorated and laid new carpets throughout. You can see here, my trusty curtain fitter Steve, who installed two large poles and hung two pairs of curtains to frame the beautiful 3m high windows. As the windows were so large, the curtains were extremely heavy, so we installed motorised poles on a remote control system, allowing easy opening and closing of the curtains, with just an easy press of a button!

This week I’ve also been pulling together a design for a clients bedroom – we’re looking at lots of lovely embroidered fabrics, to be set against a dark, inky blue wall. In contrast to the wall, we’re using bold flashes of turquoise and fuchsia on key pieces of furniture, lighting and accessories. This fabric here will be cover the top of a blanket box, kept at the end of the bed.

I’ve also been sourcing cushions for a client, working with a piece of art that she has as a starting point, I’ve been looking for cushions that tie in with and compliment the colours of her painting. These painterly, abstract floral prints below go beautifully, and I thought adding in the more structured, geometric print cushions created a really nice balance. You can see in the image below that I’m curating my collection of cushions using a piece of software, which means I can play around with different ideas to create a variety of combinations. Such fun!

Have a great weekend all!
