Dragon or bird?

Its going to be a scorcher here today.....time for me to break out the summer gear which in my world is pretty scary. I am a winter girl at heart - jeans, boots, ballet flat and long sleeve t - shirts are my preferences. Showing my skin makes me self conscious and awkward. Anyway, I digress.....
what I really wanted to say was 'have you seen the new chiang mai dragon?'


Yep, this is Schumachers new Shanghai Peacock! 
What do you think? I do love that tealy blue.....yes, I could definately live with that! Love a bit of swirly, flowerey, feather action.

More blue.

You are most likey sick of hearing about my 'thing' for navy blue so sorry if you are but I cant help but show you these beautiful samples I was sent last week, only helping to make picking and choosing my cushions all the trickier! 




See what I mean?
Anyway,  I have given myself a deadline and will decide today. Nothing like a bit of pressure to help with desicion making!  
Of course, many thanks to the delightful team at Emily Ziz for tapping into my distress over 'the blues' and providing these amazing samples!
Honestly? If you need ANYTHING in the way of stunning fabrics, wallpapers, lighting, art and even rugs stop there first 'cos you won't be disappointed!     


In fact, I am off to make a coffee and sit down and have a really good linger on their website. It is jam packed with goodness......there goes the next hour or so!

Now to decide.

Firstly, many thanks to those of you who comment on my blog. I haven't exactly been blogging thick and fast so those of you who leave comments, email me and also wonder where I am and if alls well  -  I THANK YOU. 
Not sure why my blogging mojo has depleted but I do know that when I do get around to posting, I always enjoy sharing what I have to say. (even though it may not be earth shattering....!) 
OK, so this week is the week that most of the big workrooms have their cut off dates for Christmas locked in. I am waiting for one large roll of fabric to arrive for only then I will I be able to breathe out. Everything else is locked in to production and on time. 

Of course it then goes without saying, that at this very exact time EVERY year, I look around my house and want to re do things. As I have been focused on my customers all year, I have neglected my own home although I did manage to take delivery of my newly upholstered (old) chairs. 
They look exceedingly good. 


(navy ticking of course) 

Now to cushion them - an easy task! Surely! 

Ah - hemm..........


......not quite as easy as you might think!

Anyway, I dont want to annoy you with my indecision, so I will just let you know that you were all right when you guessed my new addiction to blue and white. Not just blue, but navy blue. It is now ruling my world and things just got a whole lot easier.  I had been following it to a 't', when I accidently let a little orange dress slip into my wardrobe. But yes, in general, navy is my thing at home and it means that everything is interchangeable with ease.  
I'll let you know when the new cushions have arrived.....no surprises as to what colour they will be! 
Have a good day! x
