Pillows Are About To Change In My Room !


Kathysue is making plans again!! 

Time to give my family room it's summer look.

The quickest change out in a room are the accessories. I am starting with adding some new pillows in ocean inspired colors………

navy, cobalt to turquoise blues

PicMonkey Collage

These are some of the options I am looking at. I still need to receive a few more samples to make a final decision.

It helps me to do a collage of the patterns in the room. I do my collages on picmonkey, fast,free and easy!

First I add the patterns that will be staying in the room.

My sofa fabric…

essex sky blue

 My area rug…..


Here are few collages I put together with the sofa fabric, and the rug…….

In this combination the Ikat will go in my two white slipcovered chairs by the fireplace. The floral and the Ikat-dot will go on the sofa.

This combination is a bit more subtle in color than the first one. The first Ikat pattern would go in the white chairs and the other two patterns on the ticking sofa.

The first fabric would be in the white chairs, and the other two on the ticking sofa.

All of these work in theory, and look great on my monitor, but until I actually have the fabrics in the room I will not be able to tell if they will marry well to each other, or not.

Always work with your fabrics on-site before making any final decisions. The lighting, the surrounding wall color, and other elements in the room may or may not marry well to the fabrics.

Which combination do you like, or NOT, and why??
