Ever since I had to spend a few weeks in hospital, and I saw this wallpaper for the first time, I could not get it out of my head. I was very sick back then, and found comfort in looking at beautiful interior blogs on my computer (and of course, I think I got one example of every interior magazine they had in that small hospital shop). It was at that time I found this lovely blog vihrea talo, and this wallpaper designed by Birger Kaipiainen in the 1950's. Finally I got to order a sample, and finally I understand why I could not get it out of my head. Even more beautiful in real life color.
Working on finishing this dress I've started on a few months ago. Of course it's a 1940's dress. I love the 1940's fashion. I'm not sure if this fabric is the perfect one for this style because of the soft draping around the shoulders. Otherwise I will try to improvise and hope for the best results.
One of those simple, not so special sofas. A couple of hours and a couple of cups with coffee later, a perfect furniture for mye 12 year old and her almost finished, new room. She selected the upholstery and cusion fabric herself from here.
