Camille's Front Room

So Camille is my running partner, and she needed help with her front room. So when I went to Reno this summer I went to the fabric store and found this amazing gray paisley for $6/yd. I was inspired and called her and told her that we should do her front room in yellow and gray.

So about a month ago, she came up to the cabin to help me paint the dresser and mirror...and we went to the St. Lawrence thrift store in Heber city, Ut. Her chair was from the free pile out back, and check out the amazing coffee table she picked up for $5 that she painted white.

The couch was from my sister's yard sale for $20, as was the floral fabric for $2, as were the rectangle pillow forms $1/each. The gray rectangle pillow on the couch was fabric from the trash at the Design company that I asked if I could have. It was just big enough to do the front of that pillow.

The light gray fabric on the couch was from the Step Down Sale at the design company for $3/yd. I love the way it all fell into place!! I could sit in there forever.

Just saw this at Tatertots and jello, you are a very talented woman. I love your choice of colors and the slip covers are so perfectly made. Do you do slip covers in San Diego???

Beautiful slip covers. I wish you were closer to Ohio! I am an interior designer who is often in need of a good slip cover.

Christi said...

Wow! That room looks great! What a great job keeping costs to a minimum!

Do you have a name/source for that cute yellow hounds tooth pillow?

Slipcovers by Shelley said...

@christi... I do have a little bit of the yellow houndstooth left. It was $6/yd and I think I have a yard left. Email me if you are interested, I could make you the pillow ($15 labor) or just mail you the fabric.

Scribbler said...

You do great slipcovers! I like the color scheme, too.

Diane at Perfectly Imperfect Life said...

I love the gray slipcover! I have a similar couch that is needing a slipcover and I will definitely use your non-skirt technique. Beautiful!

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

Blessings,

Stunning results, it looks so professional!

Kristi @ Addicted 2 Decorating said...

I'm such a fan of your slipcovers!! They're just amazing. I can't get over how perfectly they fit. I'm trying to work up the nerve to make slipcovers for two chairs that I bought at a garage sale for $4 each. They're fully upholstered, amazingly sturdy, and very boxy, which I'm hoping will make it easier. Thanks for the inspiration!!

Carol-Anne (Use the Good Dishes!) said...

Visiting from Addicted2Decorating.....love the slipcovers and the colour combinations you've chosen are beautiful!
