Cruisey Saturday. Coffee, thrifting, shops, got some great bread, chatting to friends. Thinking linen for my black bedroom curtains. Can get a good deal on the fabric (yes those are napkins but I can get the linen by the yard). Natural or ecru. Not sure. I'm leaning towards the ecru except now I don't want to call it ecru. It's more grey natural. Anyway .... that's my vintage suzani that will be my bedspread. Maybe some tortoiseshell cane blinds behind the linen drops. Reminds me I better buy a sewing machine. My old one is dead. Oh ombre! Maybe I can dip die the ends of the linen drops to get an ombre effect. Maybe not. There will be an awful lot of curtain!
I can't get enough of these inspiration images of Scott Newkirk's Brooklyn home on Michael Mundy's An Afternoon With ... but with black walls and a slightly more grey natural (let's not call it ecru) linen.
