Finding the perfect Sofa

Selecting a sofa, involves a lot more than you think, all about the comfort: seat cushion: foam, down. Base: springs/webbing? Height of the seat base depth of the seat? Fringe, inverted pleat/box pleat, studs no studs, turned legs/ tapered legs, stain/ paint effect on wood or castors…

Certain arms and backs suggest  modern or traditional styles.  From the classical/traditional style to the more contemporary one, but the way a sofa is upholstered and trimmed can also influence its appeal. I have selected a few styles i love, there are so many, its hard to pick my best

Wedding Inspiration

My gorgeous friend is getting married soon and i have been asked to help her out with the wedding and be a brides maid, so you can imagine my excitement. She wants to have a rustic theme, so i have been toying with a few ideas, for a Provencal themed wedding… use of dirty pinks, lace, linens, etc… Beautiful crisp white table cloths, crystal glassware and scalloped cutlery, is definitely the way to go. For rustic ideas, choose a colour palette that fits with the wedding theme. Earthy tones in deep yellow, sage, rust, tan and cinnamon are perfect when you want to create a rustic look. Neutral earth tones still create bold pops of color, and match well with rustic flowers and decor.

Lighting, all i can say is dim lights, and plenty of candles, always creates a beautiful glow in a room, always a flattering light, that cannot be replicated with lights.

Tonal Brides Maid Dresses

When it comes to brides maid dresses there are some pretty awful dresses out there, i do not understand how one can come up with such dresses, the point of the brides maid dress is not to upstage the bride but to complement the bride.
