My client had just come into some money and decided to finally re-do her bedroom. She repainted, re-carpeted and completely re-did her bed. She settled on Shabby Chic fabrics and bedding. Because she couldn't choose only a couple of the prints, she, basically, went with all of them. Fun for me because I had a practically unlimited selection with which to create her dream bed.
Because her bed was high, nothing ready-made really worked. I had to custom make the coverlet so that it looked like she had two bed skirts. I think I ended up making about 27 pillows. They literally took up 3/4 of the bed. But it's what she wanted and she loved it.
These are some of the various pillows I made. I got to mix and match as I pleased. As I've said before in a previous post, that's my favorite kind of job: here are the fabrics, you decide how to put them together.
And to top off the pile of pillows, I made her this bunny out of vintage chenille. The ribbons around her neck reflect the colors in her bed.
