i love everything about the swedish waterfront home of interior designer marie olsson nylander. the story goes that marie and her husband visited this home several times before deciding to purchase it. after making the big buy, the couple reconditioned every inch of the 70s built home. and what an amazing home it is! see the video that follows where marie talks about her home.
i’m so gonna do this to a chair one day. yes, i get excited at the thought of spray painting the upholstery of a really ornate chair. they probably didn’t use spray paint though. hmmm…i’ll have to google that. but anyway, isn’t this chair all that and a bag of chips?
in 2011 (i know, i know, it was just days ago…) chevron was absolutely everyfreakinwhere. and personally, i’m just sick and tired of seeing it.
the zig zag print has been shown on everything imaginable: clothing, walls, shoes, shower curtains, dinnerware (although these plates are rather cute), furniture… i mean, really, it’s just become too much. it’s taking over birthday invitations, nurseries, bedding, jewelry. it has even seeped onto blog and website backgrounds and banners!! and i bet any amount of money that some fool out there got a daggone chevron tat in 2011. i just know they did.
i can’t remember the last time one simple pattern just took over our society. it’s insanity. please make it stop. kill the chevron.
i guess it could be worse. can you just imagine a paisley obsession?
back in the day when i had a little more space and a lot more time i loved finding furniture pieces and painting them. learning to reupholster furniture is def on my bucket list. these pieces are so striking with bold colors and fabrics patchwork-ed together. luv!
