Look At What I Have Been Up Too!!!


When I am working on a project I can get very focused. Sometimes to a fault!! My mind can’t let go of a project until I get it nailed down.

I don’t have it totally nailed down yet, but I am getting closer to the look I want in my family room. I still have several swatches coming so nothing is in cement yet.

You all know that I am a planner, and all details need to be ironed out before orders will be placed.

Since I like a semi- casual-elegant look I tried to keep that in mind when sourcing out fabrics.

The larger swatch is the fabric for my sofa, and ottoman. Both the sofa, and ottoman will be piped in white to keep it bright, fresh and crisp.

This is what I have been up to this past week, instead of writing blog post……….



The upper right hand fabric has a light natural linen colored background, not white. The large leaves are actually a light sage/celadon green outlined in a darker sage/celadon green which happens to be the exact color of my kitchen cupboards. The reason I am even mentioning this is my home is an open concept home so the kitchen and family room are seen when in both rooms.

 The upper right hand fabric is a small print with a repeat of 3 in. Here is a picture of the actual size of the pattern on a pillow, but in a different colorway...........





Now that you have seen all of the mixes which ones do you like or for that matter, dislike. Please leave a comment to give me your opinion. I always love hearing from my readers. Trust me I know design is subjective!

Can’t wait to hear what you all have to say, remember none of these fabrics have been ordered yet, and the only one in cement is the ticking stripe!!

Let the Design Games begin!!
