I have been trying to decide on the fabric for new pillow covers in the living room for weeks, maybe months. I just can’t seem to make up my mind for fear that if I finally choose, something else will pop up that I love more! I know that eventually I will make a slipcover for my ottoman, and also recover the dining room chairs. The dining room chairs are visible from the living room, so what I choose for them is relevant to the whole design scheme. The trouble is, I keep waffling between what style I am after: either a cozy, weathered and worldly mix, or a preppier, more playful set of fabrics. Here are the fabrics I pulled together for each of those looks. All of the fabrics were found on Quilt Home.
It’s horrible to feel stuck, but this has been a great exercise in finding different prints that are compatible. Building off of one fabric that you absolutely love, you can add layers of character to your surroundings. In general mixing up the scale and theme of the prints is the way to go, as I have shown in the two different sets above. Eventually I will make up my mind, but in the meantime, go ahead and weigh in on which direction you think I should choose. I would love a second opinion!
