This is a good example of what the addition of a bit of fabric can do to finish a room. It softens the entire space, frames the window, makes it look bigger and reduces the attention-grabbing contrast of the white white trim against the caramel-colored walls.

|The sofa before|
|The sofa and loveseat with slipcovers|
The solution is washable slipcovers of unbleached 10 ounce canvas.

I love wing chairs. They are classics but they can fit any decor. Here it is in a dining room and while the peach-colored piping may seem a bit unusual, it matches the peach in the pattern of the fabric and ties to the peach tiles in the kitchen -- visible just to the right of the chair. So it works quite well and the home-owner loves it.
We had 6 or 7 meters, just barely enough. Thankfully, the pattern didn't need to be matched everywhere, but I did have enough to match on the cushion seat and front and chair.

See those big tassle tie-backs? Couldn't be more perfect and I've had them in my stash for a few years. Glad they have a new home.
Close ups of the sofa and chair before and afters. We used the same fabric as on the window treatments, just the opposite side.
This home has a soft, gentle ambience that is very comforting and inviting. It's right on the water, and the flower gardens are a true testament to the owners love of green things. You'd never guess this little gem was here - can't be seen from the road at all. We did soft green slipcovers and new drapes. Quite a transformation.

Three cushion sets - all using Sunbrella fabric and the new outdoor cushion 'foam' I found. This foam won't mildew or mold, or collect water. The Sunbrella fabric won't fade or disintegrate. These cushions should last as long as the homeowners want them to. They can put the cushions out in the spring and take them in at the end of summer. An upside/downside to the new foam is that it is heavy. These cushions will not blow off.
Clare and Rob Fensom are doing an amazing thing at Harmonius Homestead and ewe including moving and refurbishing Mount Ida Hall. The windows had been boarded over - for years. Clare and Rob chose this plaid fabric for the blackout drapes - very much in keeping with the feel and style of the hall. It's a really warm room. ( And available to rent...)
