Cabbage Rose Re-birth ...

I can just feel it ... it is lurking around the edges of my brain.

"Back in the Day" before blogs ... I was taking kid photos, not home design projects.  Last week an IG friend posted a photo of some old fabric she was going to re-purpose and it reminded me of this time in my life.  

I worked very hard for this complete Ralph Lauren Bedroom ensemble!  And the Laura Ashley Stripe wallpaper ... my favorite.  When I look back at this photo I am reminded how much I love the look.  This was circa 1996 ... almost 20 years ago.  I think it is time for a rebirth of the Cabbage Rose. 

Fast Forward to now and I have a new client with this sofa!
I actually told her it was so old it is almost Current!
Knee jerk reaction ... how can we ditch it?
After careful thought ... We decided to see how we can keep it and make it feel fresh and NOW.
And NOT ... Shabby Chic.

Here's a little mix we came up with to bring the Cabbage Rose into 2014!

The Cabbage Rose ... Is it NOW or NOT?   

Stay tuned!!
