A Project For

Felicity

Age

7 months

Location

Grand Rapids, Michigan

Description

Despite me being a quilter and my mother owning a fabric store, I couldn't for the life of me find anything I liked (or could afford).   That was until I saw the "Little Kukla" line from Suzy Ultman. . . . **swoon**   I am such a nerd, I actually wrote her a letter proclaiming my ultimate fan status to her work.  She never responded.  Hahahah.

 

Design Inspiration

The onion dome print that I used in the drapery panels was my launching point.   I thought of cold winter days in Moscow, St. Basil's Cathedral, onion domes, and matryoshkas.

Decorating Style

Eclectic, inexpensive, quirky, whimsical

    I just love it! Our little girl is going to be a Felicity, too! Plus we are also doing a gray and orange nursery, fox themed.
