Deb - Having a good sense of style can't be inexpensive. It's either a good match, or it ain't. It must be a hell of a burden for you to carry.. Jim

I second SCopp.
I like the natural elements of metal wood and stone. Turquoise is stone, a great color and you can even find actual real turquoise accent pieces. Or better, plastic turquoise pieces. Nothing says this is old but modern like a good 50's piece of plastic.

Jim,

Well, it goes like this for me about sense of style: It's easier for me to work within a budget for a client than it is doing so for us. With regards to a key piece for our home or AS, I'll do without until I can get the "ideal" thing sometimes. I have a strong feeling about what works best and it's very difficult for me to go in a different direction.

Now, having said that, I'm not one to go all out and "risk the farm" because of having to have just the right thing, there is a line there (and I'm certain I pinch pennies with the best of them). I cut corners where I can on many things, but there are certain items which are key and need to be just right; I'm very used to doing without "this" in order to have "that". Thinking of the rad rod, the paint will be the blue suede matte finish paint, so the statement on this chopped truck with a homemade very small truck bed will be the bench seat. I talked with DH and suggested we cut the top off entirely and we'll do a Carson Top (hard, removable top), and DH wants to rivet on some aluminum onto the Carson Top. The windshield will be chopped as well as the side windows. So, when the top is off, the seat will really stand out -- very striking. Expensive Indian blankets were out of the question, but the thinish rugs we found had patterns which were somewhat in that same line, and the colors worked well.

I am all about color/texture/patterns -- I'm like a kid in a candy store when my new Fall/Spring line of fabric sample books arrive. I suppose it's a little like those who work with tools really get into looking at a new tool which has come out or a special one which they don't have yet.

Deb

Deb - Re my post #365 above, you do know I was only funnin' ya, don't ya? I already know I like your 'vision' as it applies to the work you & your DH are doing on your Stream, so I was only giving you a bump of sorts. Axually, was meant as a compliment.

Jim, yes I do know that, and no harm done -- I took it as a compliment, thanks. (I was smiling as I read it.)

On the flip side, I got to thinking that someone (who doesn't know me) might think that I'm really out there spending, spending, and there couldn't be anything further from the truth. I've been told I worry too much about what others think, but I guess that's just me.

Hoping you're having a great holiday weekend, it's lovely here in Ohio, for a change! In the 70's and sunny, sunny, just a few clouds in that blue sky!

Deb

(Thanks again!)

These photos are the initial cut and fit

More on the cushions. Curtains next week. Remember...I wanted color and not a bland plastic look.

I love that fabric with the wood, very nice elegant choice! I like color and I like where you're going with this.

I agree, the upholstery fabric works very well with the wood -- gives a warm feeling and I can't wait to see what you've chosen for the window treats!

planning

Here is another pic of the bed with the fabric pinned on. The bottom on the left is the portion which is on the linear actuator and it comes out 18 inches. That dictates the height of the back cushion. Here also are some pics of some old curtains I had. I put them up to check clearances top and bottom. Some clearance issues in both places. What do you all think about the curtains....should they have a double pleat or just single at the top...like these...?
