What an awesome little box! I've seen this on several blogs and I give props to whoever introduced it. It's a piece of prime real estate! It's modern, has clean lines, has lots of floorspace, has lots of natural light, high ceilings, you can build up, and you can have skylights if you wish. I think everything that can be done with it, has been done, and very well, but I want my turn! I was playing around with some items I had just received in the mail and this is what it grew into.
|OK, a lot of pattern going on, but I call this the winter version.|
|This is the summer version. Changed the rug and did some editing.|
Personally, I like the cozy version. Noooo, maybe I do like this one.
|I was going to change to a solid paper, but I just couldn't do it.|
I love this paper, man! This paper is me!
|Let's get a closer look: Outdated mags, stale coffee, plastic cookies, fake flowers,|
|oh, and lamps that don't work!|
|The cat's view|
This is the part that I'm not too fond of. Is this really a requirement? The chairs, pillows, TV stand, and TV (the flip side is a fireplace that I saw on Call of the Small), are from HBS Miniatures. The table is a cookie cutter and candle dish. The fireplace is from Hobby Lobby. Summer rug is a washcloth. The pouf is from Party City (I saw it on someones blog. I think it's a kick ball or something like that). I made the lamps and a lot of the accessories. Other little items are from Michael's (paper and mirror parts) and Hobby Lobby. The star, the Lekman box is from IKEA.
The cat was given to me by a retired co-worker who knew I liked cats and miniatures.
Whew, I'm tired! This took forever! I missed the whole Lakers' game!
Love all of it! You should enter it into minmodernas comp!ReplyDelete
Wow, thanx! I'll have to check it out. I recall seeing something about it.Delete
OH MY GOODNESS!!!! I have just stumbled across your blog and this is ADORABLE! I can't believe how perfect you've got it. You must have the patience of a saint, but it is SO worth it - your miniatures are beyond gorgeous. Scrolling down now to have a proper look though all of your work - utterly amazing!ReplyDelete
p.s. sorry for all of the exclamation marks, but I am just so blown away by this! (yup - there's another one...)
Mrs. Sutton, you're making me blush, but thank you very much, and thanks for becoming a follower! If you go to any of the blogs on my side bar, you'll really see some amazing work!Delete
Fantastico salon, me encanta cada uno de los detalles.ReplyDelete
Thank you! I think the details add a lot to a room.Delete
I love all the pattern!ReplyDelete
Thank you Daphne! I've always enjoyed mixing patterns.Delete
You made all the patterns work like a pro! The key is keeping the colors the same in each pattern and you did just that. And, you really make your signature color---orange work. I'm with you, the scrapbook/wallpaper is fabulous. Your set up shows us yet again how versatile that Leckman box is. Bravo.ReplyDelete
Side note: its called a hackey sac ball and margret_loves was the first to use it rather than a hand knitted pouf.
Thank you! My Mother turned me on to mixing patterns way back when, and she sparked my interest in interiors. She has orange furniture, and I'm not even there yet!ReplyDelete
Love your work! You are awesome! Thank you for sharing. Hugs, FelmaReplyDelete
Thank you Felma, you are the one who's awesome! Congrats on being published!Delete
Very cool and loungey. Is that a word? Should be. LOVE this room. Congrats on getting the Leckman. The color scheme is fab. Too much fun!ReplyDelete
I understood it, whether or not it's a word! It is now! Thank you!Delete
Hi There, Thanks for commenting on my blog. I like your stuff, too. That paper is groovy. Also like your comments on the outdated magazines and lamps that don't work.... Hey, this is all imaginary anyway..right? I agree with you about the credits section. I learned a lot from them when I first started, but they really do take ages to do.ReplyDelete
Happy Memorial Day Weekend.
