I’ve found a fantastic shop which I’d never been to before – Action, I think it is Dutch but they do the most amazing homewares for next to nothing so I’ve managed to pick up some lovely things all ready to go into Clara-van. Hubby thinks I’m mad when she isn’t done yet but I know if I don’t pick things up when I see them then when I’m ready there won’t be anything I like!
Bamboo fibre crockery (much nicer than the melamine I was thinking I was going to get), wineglasses (le plastic of course!) and a salad bowl and servers:
A stove top coffee maker:
And some fab very light weight, very retro looking storage canisters!:
My original idea for the curtain fabric was something bright with lots of colours which the grey / yellow / blue doesn’t really hit (although I do love it). I have spotted this fabric which I think will be more fun and hit the vibe I’m after better.
Maybe with purple seating covers?
What do you guys think?
After a trip to the fabric store to help concrete (or should I say sew up!) my ideas for the decor in Clara-van and hours and thousands of fabric searches on line I think I’ve decided what I’m doing. Right from the start and further decided by lots of inspiration on Pinterest and various blogs I want to do a retro / scandi sort of look with plain seat covers and bright, fun, light, bright curtains and cushions. Here is my current decision, but not promising this won’t change if I manage to find fabric I like more!
For the curtains:
Cover for the seats / mattresses:
Accent fabric for cushions:
