I’m putting the finishing touches on a dreamy screen-in porch. This lovely couple uses the porch throughout the year, even on mild Maryland winter days. They are, without-a-doubt, the most romantic people I know. This is togetherness a place.
What seems to be a small and simple project, has a unique challenge. My client has environmental sensitivities that make typical outdoor cushions, with their weather retardant chemical coating, out of the question. My goal was to create an inviting look that would be stylish and safe for her to use.
We started with Royal Albert china in Cheeky Pink for inspiration. Then I found two F. Schumacher & Co. to suit our romantic concept perfectly.
I added a darling little ticking by Robert Allen, Cottage Stripe in Candy. This is a 100% cotton fabric with fairly durable 30,000 double rub abrasion factor.
The true icing, on this sweet treat of layered fabric pattern, is an amazing F. Schumacher vintage print. Manor Rose was designed in 1944 by the legendary Dorthy Draper, the first professional interior designer in our country. You can see from this image from F.Schumacher that the scale is gorgeously immense!
This pattern layout will make the best use of each flower for our three accent pillows.
I’m in love with the final design! It proves that eco-friendly design for people with environmental sensitivities does not have to be earth-toned!
