Transformed Drawing Room ................ creams and browns

Also been chased up for pics of this project as well .............. a quick change for Summer look in Drawing Room - all cream for cool summer colours. In the winter its all rusts and browns as its a north room (so a cold north light)
So the rust and brown rug has been rolled up to reveal the cream fitted carpet

Curtains in a cream linen damask with two colours of ribbon (brown and coffee coloured) trim along the headers
The other window has been done in the same style as well
I added these to stop the curtains looking bland - those stripes really make the curtains look sharp and tailored as the linen hangs in crisp linen folds

Now leather cushions transformed with new slipcovers in a printed silk - made with scraps I bought off ebay!

Here is close up of -
one of slipcovers - edges bound with the same ribbon as one the curtains
one small cushion made from a scrap
one larger cushion made by cutting two left over pieces of fabric and alternating the strips to make a striped cushion
All I had left were a few tiny scraps of fabric
Case of waste not want not! LOL
