Amy Meets Laura

I'm still in cushion mode and these are my most recent efforts. They are not for the boatshed but for an 1890s house. Because the house is Victorian, I decided to use up a Laura Ashley remnant for the side cushions. However, to bring the look into the twenty-first century, I trimmed them with Amy Butler remnants. Amy's William Morris-esque designs went perfectly with Laura's sprigs and hopefully offset any potential tweeness:

In the dining room, I used some Amy Butler fabric from the Midwest Modern II collection to brighten up this 80s chair:

The chair on the right (below) also has a cushion out of this fabric. You can see from this little grouping that I don't mind mixing my eras. The T. H. Brown dining chair on the left is very mid-century, but hopefully still looks OK with the earlier chair and dresser:
Here's a cushion closeup:
All the furniture in the bottom three images was found in op shops.

Those cushions look great! I don't think you're in danger of ever being twee ;-)

And that T. H. Brown chair, oh my. It's just so cool.
