FABRIC STORY




Well we had 2 of the most gorgeous days here in Atlanta and now.....it is going down in the 30's tonight.  What in tarnation is going on with the weather....

Cra
zay.

The other day I posted this image on Instagram


I am working with a client that has a leather sofa close to that saddle color.

The family room is off the kitchen which is white, black and stainless.

It's no secret that I am a lover of black, cream and camel.....I even started a pinterest board to reflect that obsession.

Back to the fabrics.

The fern fabric which is from Sanderson is killing me so hard.  I believe it also comes in a wallpaper.



To get some texture in the mix I found a new favorite fabric from Thibaut.

Linen

It's a nice upholstery weight fabric that is so beautifully thick with raised stitching. 

Here are my 2 other favorite colors.
Sand

Bark

The room needs to be painted so I pulled a few neutrals.

We also need 2 chairs so I rummaged through my Lee Industries samples.....


Of course there is this dining area in the kitchen that could possibly be wallpapered.....

It is still a work in progress.....so hopefully after tweaking and perfecting....I will share what was selected!  

My whole house is a wreck today because I am having some painting done.....which I will be sharing soon.  Boy.....when you move everything away from the walls you realize how dusty the place it.

Might need a refresher course on how to clean.

That fern print is yummy. The raised design on the linen jumps out--even in a picture. Such a pretty palatte. Excited to see it come together!

Hi Sherri, love that mix. The Sanderson paper is in the running for my powder room right now, funny enough! I have some of the fabric and the paper is just gorgeous. I love the green one, too. That Thibault is a favorite of mine -- I reupholstered a client chair in it and my guy hated using it, said it should have been backed. Hope that's helpful. Gorgeous, gorgeous. Can't wait to see it done.
