It’s so weird, for the past five or six years, whenever it gets to this time of year i go on an upholstery frenzy. I say frenzy but what i mean is that i start thinking of everything i want to cover and the cushions i want to make up or remake. Then i procrastinate for a month, Then i finally call Mr Meyer, upholsterer extraordinaire. Who invariably tells me he’s not taking anymore orders ‘but thanks for all the referrals’. And then i wait until January to actually do it.
I doubt this year will be any different. Although i have told eldest stepdaughter i might think about a headboard for her but given that i can’t stop thinking about the new Design Team designs, this will likely happen.
Which brings me to deep buttons. Mr Meyer does a mean deep buttoned job. He made me these two beauties (if i do say so myself) and when i get my A into G i will get him to make me a round deep buttoned ottoman in velvet for our lounge. I am a firm believer in a deep button for a head board – very forgiving and very, very plush. Rose, if you’re reading this, i’d love to hear your opinion on the matter…
Have a lovely day lovelies – i am rush, rush, rushing today. Shooting this morning, then briefing in an 11 page feature for Good Housekeeping, then a meeting, then pick up kids, supper etc. Sheesh.Must.Just.Breathe.
