Wrapped Around Orange

So, at 10am I’ll learn whether or not some other person in Buffalo with fabulous taste took my sofa. And yes, I said MY sofa. In my mind, I’ve already bought it and began working around it, sure no money has changed hands, there is a possibility that someone stole it from me, I should have probably had them hold it … too bad it’s not near a window … I’d drive over now and take a peek. Anyway – enough rambling, in a few hours I’ll know if I can give it a new home at CDLV.

I grabbed a few of my favourite magazines and books from my office library and began digging for thought. Mary McDonald, an icon and one of my favored designers, had her non-public residence photographed for Veranda’s 2008 Christmas trouble displaying off her exceptional collection of blue and white with 18th century daybeds blanketed in cut linen velvet in persimmon.

I love that she mixed her blue and white jardinieres with the orange velvet in a room with so much natural woodwork. Though far more amazing than my room, it’s a wonderful source of inspiration.

Celery Kemble, who always uses the best color combinations, used orange velvet pillows on this tufted serpentine sofa. But the real inspiration here is the sky blue and white color combo. So fresh.

Here the orange velvet daybed pairs up with chocolate and black in an condominium in Barcelona. You already recognise that I’m in love with Martha Stewart’s Monks Cloth, with seems to be very just like this wall coloration. I do not want to color the room darker though, if some thing, lighter – nevertheless a backburner idea.

I become taken aback to locate this picture which is eerily similar to the shade and style of my (um, soon to be my) couch.

I mean eeeeeeeeeerily similar. I’m so glad to find this so that you all can see the beauty of this sofa in the event someone else snagged her. Check out the wear on that silk velvet! Can’t you see why I’m having a total love crush on it?  Ah, I’m having palpitations … time to move on.

A sorta Swedish inspired appearance that grey and blue wash on the fixtures … But the biggest idea turned into the suzani masking the sofa cushions and the plaid over the window! Did I no longer weblog about this the day before today! Love this combination.

And while I recognize there are not any oranges in this room, just lemons (hahaha) I just like the association of the furniture and those oriental inspired aspect tables as espresso tables. The sofa (though not orange) is certainly loads like the orange velvet sofa I am calling mine in size/scale. So this room gives excellent concept for layout and add-ons!

Of direction, I do love the mother of pearl inlay tables and furnishings that Mary McDonald utilized in her residence with orange:
