Caitlin Wilson has been showing little previews of her upcoming textiles line on her blog. I'm so excited for her to reveal the entire line. I remember when I filled out the survey that she placed on her blog during the beginning stages of her new business venture. Of course she did not disappoint. Her impeccable taste and flawless design aesthetic is serving her well.
Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but it's also a functional space. I'm constantly displaying my clothing in my bedroom. I generally put out new pieces, or color combinations that I want to try. I hook hangers on the backs of my doors so that I can see my clothing
(does anyone else do this or am I alone on this one?).
I love how the clothing and shelving unit takes the place of a headboard in this bedroom. The actual clothing adds pops of color against the stark white canvas of the room (so calming). Visual interest is created by using different textures and fabrics. Hello sheepskin rug, and lace patterned blankets.
I don't think I could have anything but sweet dreams in this space.
I love making silhouettes and have found an effective easy way to create them. All you have to do is take a photograph of a profile (preferably against a white background). Then just print the picture out in black and white on regular paper. You can print any size you like (I usually print 8x10 photographs). Once you have your copy simply layer a piece of paper underneath. I used black here but you can use any solid or patterned paper. I tape a small amount of painters tape on the edges to keep the paper from slipping as I cut around the image. The result: a perfect silhouette. I think they are the sweetest keepsake's.
What an incredible week! I felt like I was spinning and twirling in a million different directions! Hopefully the pace around here will slow down a bit. All I can say is that I'm so grateful for all of my friends and family as I take on new, exciting challenges.
