Update: Lino Print Lust

Remember the post about the beautiful work of Sahara Dalley of Papatotoro? My husband and I ordered a custom piece of fabric that we intend on using somewhere in our bedroom. I absolutely LOVE how it came out and I wanted to share with you the blog post that she did about making this piece for us. You can visit her blog here:

and watch the video of her making the lotus print for us. For some reason when I tried to post the video myself it failed. Sorry! Please go check it out! It is always incredible to watch an artist and even more incredible to watch an artist create something just for you!

Did you go see it? Is that neat or what?! She customized the ink to match some of my paint swatches and ordered the finest linen from Scotland. Do you have visions of a custom piece floating in your head yet?

Now what will I do with the fabric?? I have been pondering for some time now. Is it the right feel for the headboard? Is it the perfect fabric for some pillows on the bed? Is it the perfect print for the fabulous $10 chair??

I am thinking it is the perfect fabric for the fabulous $10 chair!!! BUT...will I ever muster up the courage to cut it?? I highly doubt it! I think I will leave it to the professionals.

I think it will be fabulous!! Maybe I can find some coordinating or contrasting fabric for the back?? Such endless possibilities with this chair!

Not only does Sahara work her magic with gorgeous prints she also has quite the green thumb. Just look at her gardens.... my yard could definitely use her green thumb! Even just a tiny hint of her greenery talents would be a vast improvement to our yard! Someday I will do a post about our disastrous yard, but it will be awhile before it is at all blog worthy :)

A butterfly from her garden inspired this beautiful print:

Make sure you stop by Sahara's blog: or her Etsy Shop:

Hope you are all having a great weekend!

  3. Wow. She has a gift! I agree with the $10 chair idea. It would look lovely on it. I might be a little scared to cut it myself too! Look at you supporting all these etsy sellers. You are awesome!


  4. The lotus fabric is very beautiful. It should look great on that chair. I don't blame you for leaving it to the professionals. I would be intimidated too.
