Namolio & Crochet Bedspeads...
I came across this photo a moment ago and connected with it on so many levels. Okay, obviously the giant doily throw caught my eye (you know me and my doily obsession) but the bench overlooking the Engish countryside...sublime. I want to be sitting there at this very moment gazing out over those homes and hills cuddled under the chunky and soft wool throw.
And speaking of a lush throw, you can purchase this one and others from an etsy shop in the UK called Namolio. I found a beautiful wool gray blanket with a tiny crochet trim for those of you not feeling the doily look. It's sold here and shown above. I see Anna over at Door Sixteen liking that one.
And while we're at it, I'm still trying to find this bedspread if anyone has leads, please let me know. I've been looking since at least last Fall, and all I could find is that the one shown in the Living Etc bedroom above is from Designers Guild London and they're no longer available. :*(
Seeing Danielle's new bedroom the other day over at The Style Files renewed my determination to locate a similar spread. I emailed her about this gorgeous bedspread shown above but unfortunately for me it's vintage and one-of-a-kind. Plus I'm not looking for the star pattern without fringe, I'm hoping for a fringe and a flower pattern (I don't have cats so the fringe won't be a problem). I love how Danielle has her bedspread pattern (star) and her pendant (star) coordinate perfectly. She's so talented and I love when someone pays such close attention to the details. Love it!
