My next project

Project:  Living room & Dining room area

My vision:  To mix gray browns into the two rooms with prints and paint.

Details:  Reupholster one or two chairs and sofa.  Paint walls and some accessories and add a Lucite coffee table.

Stage 1:  collecting fabrics, colors, taking measurements & ordering fabrics

Collecting fabrics:  I love how these prints compliment one another

This pillow is the perfect gray.  I picked up some spray paints to compliment this gray

An antique chair that will be recovered with this bird print

My current sofa.  As you can see there is some wear & stains.  I still love the lines and tufting of this sofa

The ikat print that pushed me over the edge and decided to go for it

Thinking of replacing as slip covering would be nearly as much

Working through the samples to see how they work together

I adore this animal print.  Wanted to use for slip cover but may use instead of bird fabric

P1010643

Much deeper color than my current sofa fabric.  I’m ready to go darker and softer to the touch.  Change is good.

As you know, projects take time.  My next stage is to schedule the sofa & chairs and paint!  To be continued. . . . .
