For the love of Red.....

I must say if it wasn't for vintage linens with that splash of red i really don't know what i would do; i absolutely love it. I stumbled across these photos the other day in my files and felt that i needed to share them with you. At the moment i have two projects on the go ; preparing a day bed for our back veranda and having 2 chairs covered in burlap with lots of tufting. I will show photos later on......
These cushions with ties inspired me for what i could put on my day bed; i want it to be nice and comfy to lay on after a hot afternoon in the garden.

Love how Cabbages and Roses use splashes of red in their store ; it makes all the creams and neutrals come alive. Take care and have a great weekend; happy gardening.
