Found the Fabric!


Good news! Every since I starting blogging and sharing pictures of my home I would get emails asking me where on earth did I get my dining room curtain fabric from? Of course I purchased it several years ago and had no idea of the name. I originally purchased from Fabric Guru, it was a discontinued pattern and all  I knew was I loved it. I received another email last week and it finally hit me to search back 3 years of emails hoping to find the confirmation order email and hoping it would have the pattern name and company, yeah!!!! It did!


Here it is made into pillows, isn’t it pretty!
Abbey Lane by Laura Ashley- the Lapis color version. I also found it here for a great price, it’s a discontinued pattern so if you love it and want it you better get it now!

Design Shuffle

Today we have a special guest from Design Shuffle!

Hi all! I’m Jennifer and I write for Design Shuffle, a social media site that chronicles the work of top interior designers around the world. I've been writing about home decor since graduating university and have loved it ever since. I'm addicted to patterned fabrics, Jonathan Adler, chaise lounges, old doors, milk glass jars, antiques, and more. I'm always on the hunt for a great bargain, just like the owner of Flea Market Trixie, and I love how we both get excited over trash-to-treasure finds. We're also big fans of colour, and I'm excited to share some pretty turquoise and green spaces.

One of the best interior design ideas is to opt for a bold colour - from kitchen design ideas to bedroom designs, every space looks better decked out in a bright hue, especially soothing tones of turquoise and green. On the walls, furniture or accessories, here's how to take visions of turquoise and green and apply them to interior designs.

Two contrasting colours balance each other out in this shabby chic bedroom design - a bluish turquoise is paired with lime green, each being used in equal doses.

While these shades may be bold in their primary state, softer versions of turquoise and green are incorporated into the window treatments, throw pillows and striped area rug.

Decorating ideas for living rooms with high ceilings can be daunting but never fear - turquoise stripes and sweeping green patterned drapes accentuate the space's dramatic configuration.

Sometimes a mix is best - this sitting room looks inviting with differently-styled chairs, such as a plain reupholstered green club chair along with a floral blue vintage dining room chair.

A melange of bright colours looks interesting in a cozy corner - this kitchenette set-up features antique blue glassware and retro espresso machine as well as green teacups, dinnerware and serving tray.

A turquoise claw-foot tub is the centrepiece of a white bathroom - the green accents come from the trees through the windows, giving the space a soothing atmosphere.

The turquoise and green touches in this dining room are more discrete when flanked by dashes of red - the striped backs of the chairs and blue leather fronts are also visually appealing.

Subtle smidgens of turquoise and green are applied to the pillows, end table and lamp - they're just colourful enough to keep this bedroom interesting.

Destination Chair


I took an old ice cream parlor chair that I found at a garage sale and funkified it.
This is what the chair looked like before.
P1050445(1) I wasn't crazy about the curly scrolls on the top so I cut them off and grinded down the welds with a table grinder.
The frame just needed a fresh coat of cream spray paint.
For the back and seat fabric, I used my black and cream chevron and destination fabric, both are from my new line of fabrics.

P.S. I'm for sale at my ETSY store.
