I met Amanda last year when she was introduced to me by my next door neighbor, Kendall Mcbride. Kendall designed and built an amazing house for for Amanda and Greg.
They invited me to make a few things for their home.
This sofa in the media room needed pillows so Amanda and I chose some fabrics and she gave me the freedom to create. Fabrics here include Malabar, Hodsoll Mckenzie, Travers and Clarence House.
This hand stitched applique uses a Malabar fabric for the background and a lightweight linen from Fabricut for the pattern.
Pillow applique and flange detail.
Two leather chairs in the living room have little pillows made with cut velvet from Zimmer Rohde.
In the small living room window seat, the cushion is velvet from Zimmer Rohde and the pillows are made with a beautiful woven print from Jacque Bouvet.
Here is a detail of my hand stitching with waxed linen thread on Travers linen.
I wish I could remember where I found the woven black dot………..it was on my shelf for a while. I finished the edge with leather fringe. These three pillows are now on the window seat in her living room.
Amanda wanted floor pillows for the media room. I had a collection of discontinued memo samples from Clarence House that were all 27″ x 27″ This is all corduroy which I quilted and washed. The flange edges are Travers linen.
In the living room is a larger window seat. I made the cushions here also with the velvet from Zimmer Rohde.
Buttery leather chair with my appliqued and embroidered pillow.
Two mohair chairs make a cozy spot to sit and read. Pillows are woven print from Jacque Bouvet.
Greg likes to hang out in his garage. I made two lamps from old car gears, one for the top of the humidor and the other is on the mini fridge. The lampshades are linen from Vervain.
In the master bedroom, I made the blanket with linen from Pindler which I quilted in 4″ squares. The backing is the bird print linen from Classic Cloth which I love and have used before and the flange edge is a metallic from Kravet.
The two pillows are silk from Jim Thompson, backed with the Classic Cloth bird print and flange edges of the Kravet metallic.
Amanda’s just getting started on the guest bedroom and the nursery. These walls will be painted and she will find the furniture she needs here but we got started on the bed.
This blanket can also be a duvet if she wants to put a down comforter inside, it’s zippered on the end. The animal print is from Clarence house and the red linen on the back is Pindler.
For the pair of pillows, I quilted and washed the linen first so it’s a nice contrast to the smoothness of the blanket.
All for today.
