Lavender and Thistle

So today I carried THIS humongous package on my bike (in the rain) to the post office. As much as I love the cycling lifestyle in Copenhagen sometimes I really miss having a car!

These 2 chairs are traveling to Scotland to find their new home. They will be in the window of David Florist in the new year so grab them quickly if you are interested in a new statement piece of furniture! They would look gorgeous as a pair or individual. 

Both have been lovingly up-cycled with the finest of fabrics and re-painted using the Annie Sloan chalk paint (See my previous blog post- The Wonderful World of Chalk Paint) I used 'Old White' mixed with a teensy bit of 'Old Violet' and some dark wax to give them an aged effect.

The fabric used in the chair to the left, 'Thistle', is an absolutely beautiful Italian velvet. It was the last of it's kind from the shop and I just had to get it. Both fabrics have been hand dyed to create a unique blend of lilacs, pinks and blues with splashes of yellows in the chair to the right, 'Lavender'.

David Florist is located on 39-43 Thistle Street, Aberdeen, Scotland. They are open Monday- Saturday 9am-6pm.

I just LOVE the ombre walls.

Here are a couple Emma June Designs super soft wool cushions. One is dip dyed in baby pink with a silky velour backing and the other is dip dyed in aqua with a linen backing.

Both are available on my Etsy store.

I have also created a little list of favourite ombre pieces from other Etsy shops, have a looky here for even more inspiration!

Velvet Loveliness

I've been working on a few orders and thought I would share some photos of the cushions I've been making.

I have been getting some custom orders for variations of the Velvet Purple Ombre Cushion.

One of my favourites are these huge floor cushions going to San Diego...

I have so many pretty scraps I'll have to make something with.

If you would like a custom 'Emma June Designs' cushion just get in touch on my Etsy shop

Now onto some upholstering!
