I approved the cutting for office chair's reupholstery yesterday. Even when things are in stock, it all just seems to take too long. I guess if it takes you months to choose a fabric you shouldn't be too impatient when your fabric house takes ten days to ship.
In the meantime, while working on another post, I started coming across all these great rooms that have that soft aqua and sharp red. I can't believe it took me so long to see the light.

The upholstery on this day bed is spot on what I am after for office chair. I was almost bummed when I saw it here; I wanted to be the first on my block.

As it turns out, this combo has been around a while. Here it is used in "Dior's favorite room." I love the way the architectural elements are highlighted in the different colors.

Many of these rooms have gold accents, which might have been my sub-conscience's inspiration for the nail head trim.

There is something so appealing to me in the chalkiness of the blue and the richness of the red.

See how she's shoved aside that red velvet pillow to have a tickle contest with her son just before she jets off to the ballet? Bother the peanut butter and jelly on his face, she knows all is well because she has him - and the fabulous striped curtains with the lovely robins egg blue chairs. Heaven.
