These quilts from Sundance are just beautiful.
They remind me of a project I recently worked on. A client of mine is a world traveler. She has brought back some really great stuff and has a collection of incredible textiles from Egypt (I think). Like many travelers, she likes to surround her self with items purchased from her many trips. We re-arranged photos, made groupings of her wonderful African objects. We determined a consistent eye level. That helped a lot. We edited a bit too. She has great instincts so it was really fun to work with her.
Up in the master, she had lively apple-green walls with a sleigh bed and brown bedding. From a trunk at the end of the bed, she pulled out these amazing textiles and wondered how she could use them. So we came up with some really fun ideas: swapping out the dark bedding for cream or ivory and then making pillows and a cafe curtain for the master bathroom out of the beautiful multi-colored scarves. Like the quilts, each scarf was a bit different, but all were bright and happy. Then we decided it could be interesting to put a throw at the end of the bed that was geometric ivory and black. Somehow the bright scarves and the black and white geometry were nice compliments.
Maybe you don't have a trunk full of scarves to re-configure…. But don't you think these quilts would look so beautiful folded at the end of a bed? Like the jelly rolls we used at camp.
