I wish I could have been there yesterday when my client's daughter got home from school and saw her 'new' bedroom for the first time.
It's very much a princess bed, though not too little girly, and will take her into her teens.
There are also draperies out of the same fabric. The rod wasn't installed yet, so no pictures of those.
Problem? Not enough of the pink/yellow fabric to make the panels for the bed frame. Solution? Use the contrast blue/green fabric for banding and ties.
New pillow shams and throw pillows and a white matelasse coverlet complete the bed.
These are the same pillow shams reversed. She can have two different looks by flipping the pillows. The backs of the throw pillows are also different.
I love making pillows like this. It is hard to see but the welting on this pillow is a stripe that has all the colors of the bedding. The back of this pillow is white duck, so that the welting stands out better.
A different fabric all together. A remnant I had that had similar colors.
(It is actually upside down in this picture.)
I used yellow linen on the back.
The main pillow sham fabric with a ruffle of the fabric from the back of those shams.
The back in a green tweed from Laura Ashley. Again, it was a fabric I had left from a job I did probably 15 years ago! You just never know when a pretty scrap of fabric might come in handy. I am not good at throwing away fabric, even if it is in colors I do not like. I tend to hang onto fabric until I can either use it in another job or find a new home for it. Or keep it, just in case!
