I am having the worst time trying to make a decision on rugs and fabric for our house!
Mainly just rugs for our living room and dining room...and fabric for our Craigslist chairs.
I think there are two reasons why it's hard for me to pick something. First, rugs and fabric can be expensive and second, rugs and upholstery are not things I plan on changing out year to year. So I have to be sure that I absolutely love it. And as far as the chairs go, I have never reupholstered something so I'm trying to figure out what type of fabric I want in addition to what color, pattern, etc. After seeing some chairs like this:
I thought that velvet could be really fun. So I ordered some samples from www.fabric.com.
Pomegranite, Rust and Very Berry
Cadet Blue, Green Lilly, Navy, and Colonial Blue
If Ed didn't live here I would have already purchased several yards of Very Berry.
For some reason he doesn't want two bright pink chairs in his living room. Weird.
So my second choice was the Colonial Blue which (I think) is actually the most boring of the colors...except for maybe the Green Lilly. But in the end, regardless of color, I don't think velvet is the way to go. Look at allllll those little bits of lint and fuzz....
With one of these (modeling my bachelorette party sash)....
I think I would be lint-rollering the chairs every day. Every hour.
So the search for the perfect chair fabric continues *sigh*
BUT! We did finally decide on a rug for the living room! Prepare to be underwhelmed!
Wild and crazy right?? Haha. I love the braided pattern and natural color. I think it will really cozy up the living room and go nicely with the chevron curtains. We should have it here within the next couple of weeks!
