Inspiration can come from the most unlikely sources - like the laundromat! I ran across a piece on Sandy Stone, a "Minneapolis-based decorative artist" in County Living magazine (March 08). Normally I wouldn't go near this magazine, but I was desperate for reading material during the dryer cycle.
Sandy re-purposes vintage fabrics into pillows, upholstery, bedspreads, lampshades and all kinds of other items. I love the big bold prints tempered by the white/beige background in her living room, the mix of pattern and vintage furniture in the sewing studio, and the chair with woven belts! I need to be this courageous with pattern in my own house.
Sandy doesn't have a website unfortunately - but she should!!
