A client saw our black and white pillow suite series and wanted us to adapt it for her home. Her couch was creme and the room was mostly a chocolate brown, but there was a red accent wall across the way - could we somehow incorporate red into the design? SURE!!!
Here's the starting point, for reference -
She wanted us to make the pillow on the top right. We found the same black and creme fabrics in brown and creme; she selected the leaf pattern as her main fabric (shown above on the neckrolls) and a a striped fabric as the coordinate - see below
this is what the finished pillow looks like:
Wait, how did you get that- those stripes aren't in the second fabric? The trick is seeing all the possibilities that a fabric may have...!!!
First we isolate a stripe - cutting off the heads of the tulips!:
then we add the red trim in the middle and the cording on the ends:
Here's the pair, sitting in their new home:
UPDATE: Our client is selling her home. The buyer has asked for the pillows to be included in the sale price. Not the couch, the pillows!!! :)
