~ dangerous fabric

Pretty fabric? Pretty dangerous!
Pretty, summery Schumacher fabrics... so inspiring... 
Add a beautiful antique wood like this,

and prints like these in beautiful frames,


Charm central, right? It's amazing what happens when you are inspired by a pretty fabric. When I saw that charming Schumacher fabric, I remembered these adorable sconces. I fell in love with them when I was in Atlanta last November. They will literally work in any room in my house.  I'm not exactly sure which room I'll choose to put them... I'm even thinking of trying them over my family room fireplace with an interesting, old, crusty mirror between.  They are from The Nicholson Gallery, a wonderful shop, a marketplace for antiques, interiors and fine art.
See what happens when you find a pretty fabric?  Very dangerous. In fact, I also fell in love with this little applewood table. Same trip. Same store. Still available.
Very dangerous.

I so know all about the danger in finding gorgeous fabric...yes, have beeing finding lots of "treacherous" fabrics and wallpapers much to my husbands horror and my secret delight! Those sconces are incredible....LOVE them. I am loving every single object in this post in fact....quite fabulous I must say. The colors are just amazing...and so worthy of doing an entire room around...best of luck!

Jan, Good morning! I love the sconces! The hint of rust or tangerine is just perfect. The Schumacher fabric is beautiful. We always like to start with fabrics first. YOur so right, they can be dangerous. Before you know it, you just might up changing everything. Have a great week. Mona
