Alidad in the House

Life is sooo upside down right now that I feel like I can't get anything done.

I did get my custom curtains finished, though, that I started here.

Plain linen ground from Chelsea with the leading edges embroidered

Love them!!!

Sweet Virginia

Shopping has begun for my new project in Virginia. 
Tradition with a twist. Just like my client.

1920s Turkish Oushak from Keivan Woven Arts via 1stdibs.

A pair of French wingbacks from Jon Vaccari via 1stdibs. be reupholstered in this cotton/silk City Stripe by Lee Jofa.

A 19th Century French Silver Gilt Greek Key mirror from Fireside Antiques via 1stdibs.

A pair of mirored chests from C. Damien Fox.

A pair of vintage mercury glass lamps from Susane R. via 1stdibs.

And a cerused oak bar cart from Arteriors.

I think it's a hell of a start.

I went to an evening estate sale a few nights ago at 7:30 pm...
after a smidgen of French rosé. That said I came home with:

A forbidden stitch embroidered Chinese silk panel,

a fur coat...

and a stuffed bird.

You can't take me anywhere.
