The Stylist Alphabet: U is for…

U is for…

Upcycle
To give an object, piece of furniture, a roadside find a new lease on life. The piece can be reworked in some way to have a new function or its appearance altered.

Upholstery fabrics
Rich with possibilities, upholstery fabrics offer so much beyond the usual hard and soft furniture coverings. A length of sumptuous velvet can be used as a wall covering or as a backdrop for other artwork. Take a similar approach with frames – if you haven’t yet found the pictures or artwork to fill them, use plain or patterned fabric.

Utensils
I am one of those people who has everything you could possibly need in a kitchen, but buy only what is aesthetically pleasing. I like to display my array on hanging racks – so it’s a wooden handle over a plastic one for me.
You can gauge my trips by the variety and material of hand-carved spoons I have: made from wood, shell, mother of pearl, snails, bamboo and horn from various ports around the world.
Many of my early memories are of cooking with my mum, sifting flour, beating eggs, all the simple chores of youth. The hand utensils she had now hang, full of childhood memories, on my utensil rack, for all to see: whisks, wooden spoons, flour sifts, cake testers, mushroom brushes, wire cooling racks and colanders.

The Stylist Alphabet will resume in 2016, but my shop will be open until later in December for all your Christmas shopping.

Yours in letters,
Sibella.
