Pleated Slipcover, Cable Pillow and Linen Crewel

I was down in New York for a few days this week. I have a few fun fabric resources to share but let’s start with this sweet slipcovered wing chair I spotted in my sister’s bedroom. My sister scored the chair at a tag sale for around $20 and then had it slipcovered in white cotton duck with decorative pleats. The chair is a nice little reading spot in her bedroom and the pleats give it a little femininity that I love.

Check out the adorable handknit gray pillow my sister got for her birthday from her very clever crafting friend and fellow home renovator, Emily. Gray is a great contrast against the white upholstery. Maybe I’ll make gray cable pillows for my bed instead of white? Below my sister’s bed with some beautiful vintage fabrics she has scored at fleamarkets turned into pillows. I have about 3 yards of the linen crewel I might make into Euro size pillows for my bed too!

p.s. the paint on the walls is Grey Timber Wolf by Benjamin Moore.

  1. Katy , because of your blog, i have just bought ( ordered from England) a hanging corner cabinet.. chinoiserie, and I also have a gorgeous wing chair. I haVE copied some other things also.. had my daughters wedding portrait ( light blue dress) blown up and put on canvas to look as much like a painting as possible. No fireplace though. It has a dark background and takes on an old look.

    I am still enquiring about the wall color. Tell me again the name of the magazine. Thanks .. Everyone i have shown your blog to loves it. Thanks

  6. $20 for that chair at a tag sale — was the tag sale in Westchester? What a bargain. And the slip cover too. Looks completely wonderful.

  8. Oh, the cable pillow is wonderful! And so much less commitment than a full-on sweater!

    The chair slipcover looks pretty sweet, too.
