“The inspiration can come from anywhere, after which I source fabrics to make a small quantity of beautiful cushions”
Melinda Fargo | The Cushion Ninja
YOUR LIFE AS INSPIRATION
This picture belonged to my late husband. It is African fabric which has been washed, stretched and framed. I’ve had it for the best part of 30 years. Secret? Even with all the art, African and otherwise, in my home, I could never quite find a home for it. You know, that gut feeling you get when you hang a piece and just know it’s in the right spot? After years of waiting in the Green Room, however, this picture immediately came to mind when I found this gorgeously woven silk fabric (pictured centre). This neglected little picture eventually found its home and went on to inform the décor and cushion collection which now adorns my sofa.
What in your world could inspire a cushion collection?
