THINGS TO DO WHEN YOU’RE SNOWED IN: PART 2

D.C has decided to become the new Alaska and my apartment has become hibernation headquarters. So what to do when you’re cooped up with some extra time on your hands? Well, you know from my previous post online shopping is my first go to. But next to that, a little DIY project is always a good alternative.
Since I’ve declared my love of all things chevron (and Rubie Green) in the past it wont surprise you that I chose an East Village inspired fabric for my little lamp shade project. Getting those zigs and zags to go around a lamp shade was tough! My shade is definitely nowhere near perfect but for the time being I love the pop of color it adds to my desk area.

Some of my favorite things pictured in this photo include: a vintage flower embroidery found in a thrift store, a funny print by Poor Dog Farm, a mini Nantucket basket filled with my Stila lip glaze collection, a framed National Gallery of Art post card of my favorite Matisse painting, 100 Years of Fashion Illustration, Tocca Isabella candle, my little brass elephant and Kate Spade notepad.

  1. I was just looking at that exact fabric for some of our redesign work! It looks fantastic!

    If you've stumbled across any chevron bedspreads or duvet covers – would love to know!

    Hopefully the thaw starts today! I've been shoveling all morning.

  2. I just love this!!! Your lampshade is all TOO cute. That is one of my favorite Rubie Green prints. Wish my desk looked this good! XOXO
