I worked here, covering the love seat with a gorgeous rose quilt and making new pillows.
The quilt is a King size reversible and worked wonderfully to tuck and shape to the sofa. I used the pillow shams here on two side chairs with the reverse side, but since this pic, I have turned them to the roses. I like it better!
The middle pillow was made from some fabric I had in my stash using a combo of green toile and a rose design I love. The vintage lace was made by my grandmother and I weaved a soft tan velvet ribbon through her delicate stitches.
The square pillow is reversible from the toile to the rose design and the heart shape pillow was a Goodwill find that I covered in the toile and added a bit of bling.
For the side chairs I added rose pillows to each. I had these in my stash of stuff and thought the embroidery design went nicely with the quilt. The throw is a design by Warren Kimble with birdhouses, birds and flowers.
Next I placed a few favorite cottage books on the coffee table~
And~~ so goes another beginning of the Summer season. I guess the moral of this story is how using a quilt with coordinating pillow shams makes for the start of a great little makeover. Using what we already have and seeing the use in a new way. I love to do this kind of decorating.
Another great find was this outdoor lace tablecloth. I placed it on my bistro table and love it. The size is 70 round.
