One thing I've learned while pulling this post together is that photos taken in my studio at night with the overhead lighting either with or without a flash are not especially flattering or true to color.
So consider yourself warned.
That being said, I have a number of clients that are collectors of all things boldly and brightly colored.
These kinds of projects without boundries are among my favorites to do and an excuse for me to ramp up the color combinations and volume.
So in between decorating projects and party preparations I have been working on these two lively and extroverted pieces.
I started with this footstool.
In the beginning it was a sedate cherry finished piece with a traditonal crewel work upholstered top that I did myself sometime in the late 80's or early 90's.
I saved the crewel work and I will repurpose it somehow. In the meantime, I decided to give this footstool a radically new look that would be appropriate for the upcoming Traveling Door Open House and one of the color hungry followers that I hope to see there.
The colors and patterns in the fabric of the footstool inspired the candlestick.
No wall flowers allowed here. It's a BeColorful thang.
Tomorrow night is Motivated Monday.
This week's theme is Front Doors.
Show us yours won't you?
Is it decorated for Fall yet?
I know, it's early. I didn't get my summer door candy up until somewhere around the first of July. So I understand if you aren't there yet. Maybe you could link up a picture of your front door inspiration if you haven't gotten around to actually dressing your door for Autumn.
Front door candy. Link up tomorrow night or just visit.
I love having you stop by.
