oh suzani

I am trying to come up with a cool design scheme for my sis' upstairs family room. So inspired by this Hilary Thomas design that was featured in Lonny...


The walls are all white, the floors are pickled pale oak, and there is a built in desk for three people, which will have chocolate Herman Miller desk chairs like these:


There will definitely be gray throughout the house so now I need to recover this ottoman in a plummy mohair...


And put this plum/gray/brown fabric on some pillows or chairs...


And I can't tell yet without a swatch but maybe these curtains from Crate and Barrel (have seamstress add lining for more weight and use rings with clips instead of rod pocket)...



And this graphic, black chandelier...

And this would probably be pushing it over the edge, but I would love to use it somewhere! Have you seen this great indoor/outdoor rug at Ballard?


Tons of family photos framed in white and call it a day! I think that looks pretty cozy...what do you think?

I think she's lucky to have you! Such a good idea to customize store-bought curtains - they sometimes are flimsy, but the custom treatments cost so much! I will try to remember it for next time I'm shopping for curtains.
