As I mentioned earlier, I decided to make a round ottoman to go with the rectangular one that I made recently and to replace the old coffee table. I found a round piece of wood at a fabric store's giveaway pile, so it's just a matter of making the frame and putting it all together. And finding the right fabric.
I love Sarah Richardson's work, and she said somewhere that she averages 12 coordinating patterns per room. So, I've set about adding more patterns to my living room. I wanted something in a bold floral, but wasn't having a lot of luck. I also had something darker in mind, maybe with a touch of red... but still coordinating with everything else in the room. I took a chance today on this floral, but still wasn't sure.
I lay it out over an old chair in the living room, thinking I'd live with it for a while.
It seemed awfully light, compared to what I'd had in mind.
And it seems to me that ever since I got the dining room chairs, I've been introducing a lot of cream to the house. Do I really want more?
And then Winter weighed in.
And I remembered that whatever I go with will soon be covered in white cat hairs.
Feel free to pipe in - do you think it works?
