SHOWCASE HOME - BANKER'S HILL

This is a showcase home I worked on with Sally Dixon a couple of years ago. When the photographer is shooting the rooms, he isn't doing it with me (or even the designers who worked on their respective rooms) and my portfolio in mind. So the picture or pictures that end up in the magazine don't and can't show all I did. It really is a matter of actually going to the showcase tour to get the full and true effect.
The slipper chair with a lace up back in the leopard fabric. I had the pillow embroidered with Sally's older daughter's name.
The bathroom was very tiny and extremely difficult to photograph. The fabric on the sink skirt and the roman shade were the same.
The roman shade was even harder to get a good picture of.
Assorted pillows on the bed.
A dog bed from the Ralph Lauren faux leopard fabric.
Close up of the bed pillows.
And since no detail is over looked in a showcase home, I also made, from a vintage chenille bedspread, a basket liner. I was even able to use the fringe from the spread.
