I am really, really good when it comes to making choices for my clients, I do a lot of research into their lives and really get to know their wants and needs. When it comes to me though, its a different story, to fussy a bit of a perfectionist, put it this way, I got engaged at Christmas and I still haven’t got a ring. I just have to be 100% sure, I mean I will be wearing this ring everyday and I want it to be right, I haven’t got the feeling that I have found the right one yet, Am I nuts?
I am a bit like Goofy trying to choose the right golf club.
When I moved house three years ago, my parents give me their old sofa, this isn’t any old sofa it was their first piece of furniture. Its a huge big bucket sofa you could easily sleep on it, I have always wanted it. So for the last three years I have been keeping an eye out for the right fabric to cover this wonderful sofa and I still haven’t found it.
I do love floral and check fabrics, well at the moment anyway.
One of my favourite fabrics designers is Ralph Lauren, his fabrics are so beautiful there are so many I love. There is such a variety of fabrics to chose from at the moment, if you are on a tight budget and cannot afford the Ralph Lauren fabric you like, try Murphy Sheehy & Co. Founded in the mid 1940’s by Harry Murphy it has evolved into one of Dublin’s leading dress and home furnishing providers under the guidance of Harry’s daughter Geraldine. They have an endless selection of very well priced fabrics.
Floral and checks.
Another one of my favourite fabric designers is Brunschwig & Fils, based in New York, unfortunately the nearest show room is in London. I love looking through their website, if there is a fabric I like, I try to get something similar to it, yes I am the one with my head stuck in the bottom of the bargain fabric container.
Well I will just keep on searching for the right one.
Thought this was a great idea. Something a little different.
A large shaving mirror turned upside down, instead of putting a plain mirror on the wall, genius.
