A Subtle Palette Rocks

Serigraph Print with Collage By Mary Maki Rae 2011(c)
Cutting out the pieces for the Back Cushion of a new Upholstery Project.
The Fabrics: A subtle beige tweed & a Celedon Green - soft -
light weight Suede. (So nice to work with - no raveling-!)

Here I'm ready to ready to attach the Piping - made from
the Celedon Green Suede. Really liked how well the Pleated
Insert worked - I was Inspired to experiment on the side -
combining some other fabrics and trims.

Here's our Client's Cherished Heirloom Rocking Chair
with the finished seat cushion trimmed with Green Piping
on the top edge - and Green Double-Piping with
Silver-toned Decorative Nails - installed by Robert -
at the Wood Edge. (which continues around to
the sides & back.)

The Rocking Chair - Finished with the Back Cushion in Place.
(Held by four ties at the Back)
The Chair will be a Gift from our Clients to their Daughter
and their New Grandchild - Happy Rocking-!!

"Girl with Parrot" - Acrylic 12" x12"- By Mary Maki Rae 2011(c)
Bubblegum Pink walls work well with the Tall White-trimmed Windows
And Silk Diaphanous Curtains & Exotic medley of Roses are a nice touch-!

Same Room with unusually High Table between Sofas -
Great for Dining - Writing - or Playing Games.
Your Own or Grandmother's Antique & Vintage China
 look Great displayed with Bright Blue Background.
All White Dining Room seems so Relaxing-
and the Roses become an exquisite focal point.
Beautiful Classic Style Bath Tub
