I stopped into one of my favorite consignment stores for a few minutes one day last week. I wasn't looking for anything in particular but thought it would be fun to look. What an evil proposition for myself! Several things caught my eye. I'm very sad that I don't have any current projects where I could use them. Let's pretend for a moment though.....
This is the sofa that I found. It was only $150.00. It was too long for any room in my house, but it has SO much potential to make someone else very happy. It made me think of Rita Konig's sofa here:
Using her sofa as my inspiration, here's what I'm thinking:
I've needed to repaint the front door for a while now. I think it might actually happen this weekend. I'm going to put a fresh coat of glossy black paint on it. If it were a different door on a different house though, I would love it to be like this.
This poster has been the inspiration for our Master Bedroom. The colors are all off in the image above but it's the only one I've been able to find online. All of the pinkish tint in this one is really gray in person. It is a London & North Eastern Railway poster that was used from 1923-1947. I think the artist's name is Freiwirth. Ours is not an original but I love it anyway. It was something my sweet Husband actually owned before the marriage.
We have the room about 85% complete. I need to make a pelmet for one window and there is still a bit of furniture refinishing to be done. (Did I mention we found the PERFECT piece for the Husband's bedside table?!) More on all of that in the near future. Thought I'd just tease you a bit with this though.
Outdoor spaces have been on my mind a lot lately. I'm currently working on an outdoor space for a client and I'm contemplating our own outdoor makeover extravaganza here at the Functional Space (more on that another day). For now I'm going to dig deep into my inspiration files for something to spark my imagination.
I am a wife and designer as well as a sometime knitter, sometime singer, and a great lover of the Husband, the Puppies, and the Old Inherited Cat. I hope you enjoy my ramblings about projects, inspirations, photography, yarn and all manner of beautiful things. Thank you for stopping by the Functional Space.
William Morris once said "have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." It is my goal to bring purpose as well as something lovely to all of my projects. Welcome to the Functional Space
