Since my big move, I have been busy trying to get my life/house in order. So much of my furniture needs to be replaced and obviously this is a process. I am trying to be as deliberate as possible about each purchase so I dont tire of the pieces and so the design is exactly as I want it. I have spent the majority of my time on the living room (post forthcoming), but am really excited about the headboard I am making for my bedroom. I recently discovered a love for Otomi fabric. Otomi is a bright, hand embroidered, Mexican fabric that depicts Mexican farm animals. Here is a pretty good example —

To balance all of the animal elements, I am going to try to do some soft, feminine furniture – a dresser, nightstand and maybe a white love seat…but that is all TBD!
