Wrapping station at the end of a fair. Getting ready for the 40 foot container.
Vintage French Club Chair in the House!!!👯♀️
Here’s the chair we went out to find for “Pivoine”; cherrywood Louis XV style made in the 1920s. The original fillings will be cleaned and re-used when it’s reupholstered - it will then be covered in the fabric which lends “Pivoine” its name. It’ll be bright and bold!
This lovely lady is the perfect companion for your desk or pair it with a table for extra seating... either way be sure not to miss out on owning this beauty #frenchchair #grainsackchair
Truth be known I’m a little nervous about our big studio move tomorrow! 🙏 It’s only across the stable yard but those who know us and work in the industry will sympathise with the volume of samples, cabinetry and product info. we hold! It’s things like this that are such a pleasant distraction (just like a house move or build you need to keep the design focus present!). I’m so excited to be able to display more beautiful fabrics and wallpapers and this is certainly an option - original vintage french chair with @gpjbaker
fabric and @anniesloanhome

Good Monday evening! A long day today and as much as I love sitting by the wood stove, this room is calling my name.
A bit tired and a sore throat with a runny nose, but no aches or pains. My BB had the same thing last week, and it was just a matter of time before it made its way over to me 😜
So with a good supper inside me, now time to rest, watch a movie maybe, and nod off.
But I still have a hard time nodding off (or paying attention to the TV), as I find myself still looking all around in amazement that this is where we sleep.
Several of you have mentioned that it’s like a Hobbit House...something I never saw until you commented. Now...I see it and when I lie here, it IS like a fairytale.
Just an unplanned fairytale. Magical things really do happen when you create what your heart tells you to create.
Of course, my heart’s desires had a lot of help in the design ... God was The Master Creator of all you see here. I am very grateful. Maybe someday, I’ll get used to it and fall asleep a little quicker.
But a part of me hopes not 😉
Sleep tight my little Hobbits😊

Good Sunday evening! Finally digging through boxes and trunks of old linens. I came across some of my Victorian dresses. Here are just a couple of them. One is and amazing long skirt and blouse with delicate lace and handiwork. The skirt is very much longer in the back...room for a bustle. And a stagecoach jacket with rust-colored trim. All my very old clothing are just about threadbare, but so pretty. I do have a 1910 striped dress I’ll have to show you on a story someday. They way it all snaps together is nothing short of amazing.
I had often thought over the years that I was born in the wrong era. And my feelings had nothing to do with clothing either...although I think these dresses are spectacular. It was just more of a sense of not truly fitting in with today’s ways, more than anything.
Of course it’s easy to romanticize those days before all the advances of medical care and modern comforts (think air conditioning and washing machines). But a part of me has always felt that I was a couple of generations off from where I should be...or maybe...I’m just “off” 😜
Off or not...I am off to bed. Woke up with a sore throat and runny nose and it never got better as the day went by. Not worse, but not better.
I’ll share my porch as soon as the mess is cleared out. Nice to see my linens up...and not a single one of them matches either 😉
Have a peaceful night my friends.

Good morning lovelies! If you’re following me on my private account you have probably seen the process of me upholstering this antique French chair. Now I’m not an expert, and have taught myself how to do this, which means it might be not how the professionals do, but I’m doing this to teach you that you can do it too! If you’re interested in seeing paint technique tutorials, sewing and upholstery, head over to @janet_parrella_vandenberg
and watch the tutorials. If you’re only following me because of Tommy, he shows up there too! 😁 Have a wonderful creative and blessed Sunday! 😘
My upholsterer has worked his magic on this chair. It was in a very sorry state with lots of worm in the frame. As you can see, once again he has turned it into a stunning piece of furniture. The last pic is of the original fabric that the client is going to frame, we used this as the inspiration for the new covering. Needless to say she is thrilled with the finished result.
This beautiful French armchair has had the full Relish treatment and now available for a new home.
Upholstered in our signature soft grey wool, ready for you to add your own touch with cushions.
In store today but be quick as these chairs don’t hang around for long.

so this happened!
I had bought a pair of this chair with the intention of changing the fabric.. well I ended up going a different route...
I painted the fabric & look what I got so far! (check out the before in my stories)
the fact that I only spend less than $80 for both chairs & less than $12 in paint it's already a win win ;)
Happy Thursday day friends
