Many of my projects end up capturing more of a neutral style sense. And, while I love me some neutrals, it's fun to mix it up with some color sometimes.
My client already had a base of neutrals in her home, so she was ready for color to more fully express her style. Kelly green was her color of choice for the first couple of projects: a large ottoman and tailored tablecloth...
She opted for green duck cloth, with white piping trim, and large box pleated skirts...
It took a lot of fabric, but it's so worth it to have full pleats!
A layer of Dacron over the top softened the tufts...
(and then there were these two scoundrels, who made it very difficult to take pictures that day - tails everywhere!)
(Thankfully, Max has had a haircut since then!)
The second project was another large ottoman for a more formal space.
This time she chose a textured linen/cotton blend in a muted teal...
...with a band of natural linen/cotton for the accent (which, apparently, perfectly matches her couch!). Again, we did full box pleats for a luxurious look.
I top-stitched the band to keep the seams going the right way.
This fabric was sturdy enough that the top did't need any extra padding to minimize the tufting.
Perfectly fresh for spring!
