Making collages while it's cold outside...
Well when it's cold in Andalucia, it's not much fun to hang outside except if you love snow and skiing which unfortunately is not my case. So I stay warm at home, trying to finish decorating the house, a time-consuming task indeed. Below is the little sitting room on the landing in cream tones. We don't use it in winter and we pompously call it the "antesala" (antechamber). On one end, it leads to the patio and the workplace and the other end leads to the first floor where the main living space is. My decorating project at home is a bit time consuming because I love doing everything myself, like sewing covers by hand. The high chairs were prototypes designed by my dear friend Kaki. We used to be neighbors in Paris and these chairs are a gift from her. Of course with time, they aged a bit so I made these covers with a very soft blanket and stitched the sides with thick cream and brown wool. I still have to make covers for the arms but I'm taking it easy. The Morrocan bed is also covered with a cream white blanket waiting for a dark brown satin ribbon to be sewn around the edges. I'm also planning to make another collage to place next to my porteuse d'eau "carrying water woman".
I am so obsessed with the carrying water woman theme for a collage that I started two other ones to hang in the living room upstairs. I placed them on each side of a wide entrance. They do look simpatica !
Monchéri just came in with the mail and hourray my first book of the year has arrived ! It's about the very interesting life and destiny of famed New York galerist Leo Castelli, Leo Castelli et les siens by Annie Cohen-Solal....Will tell you more about it next monday !
