Spoonflower Fabric: Fabric Lined Bookshelves

Here is a recent project from a lovely lady named, Whitney K. in MD, who purchased my Medallions in Mushroom fabric to spruce up a hand-me-down bookcase. She painted the bookcase and added the fabric as a fun graphic element to the back of the shelves. Thanks for sharing this project with me Whitney!

Spoonflower Fabric – Coastal Living Magazine

I was recently featured in the November 2012 issue of Coastal Living magazine for a cover feature on 8 Looks for Your Holiday Table. The magazine purchased my Medallions in Mushroom fabric from spoonflower.com and created a tablecloth for one of their tablescapes.

150 year old sofa redo – inspiration

Sooooooooooooooooooo, pretty. Here is the inspiration for my sofa. I’m going to include a photo of my sofa for a comparison so you can see that they are similar in size and slightly in style. So, I think it is a good goal to work towards. I love simple neutral sofas, so you can change your mind throughout the years as much as you want with pillows. My original idea was just a basic light mushroom-colored linen, since this will be my first upholstery job. I just wanted to add a little something to it, and when I saw this Cisco Brother’s + Lumi collaboration … I fell in love.

My plan is to photograph the graphite writing and signature on the wooden frame and blow it up and either option 1) print it by spoonflower or option 2) use inkodye from lumi, just like this inspiration sofa was created. Read up on the Inkodye process here.

I was so excited to see that Lisa Barrett (fellow Spoonflower designer & artist) posted project photos on my Spoonflower page of her completed chair cushions recovered in one of my fabric designs (see chair on right). One of her many home-decor projects completed to sell at a local handmade market in her city of residence, Canberra, Australia, featuring some “re-loved” furniture pieces. She selected my Medallions in Mushroom fabric printed on upholstery weight cotton canvas (available here). Thanks for sharing this project post with me, Lisa.

Lisa runs several online shops (here & here), and home decor & fashion blogs (here, here).

Thank you for supporting my work!

I just wanted to write a quick thank you to all of the people out there who have purchased my fabric designs on Spoonflower.com. One of the first designs, Tribal Peacock in Sunny Yellow, that I posted for sale in the Spoonflower has been so well received and it is humbling and thrilling each time I get an email from Spoonflower saying that an order has come in.
