Here are a couple of corners of my living room (sorry for the Christmas photo--its the only one I have of that end of the space!). The colors are cool but cozy--light gray on the furniture with accents of chartreuse and turquoise here and there. My problem with the space is that I don't think there's enough pattern going on. The large patterned pillow in the Christmas photo is too festive for all year round, and its on its way out in favor of some more livable patterns. My problem is that I'm completely indecisive when it comes to committing to patterns for my own space. I can pull things together for clients, no problem, but for myself its another story. I want to keep the chartreuse pillows because I love that color and don't get tired it, but I need something else. Here's what I've found so far, but I'm nowhere near saying yes to any of these!
Imperial Trellis is everywhere, almost nearing the point of being overdone. I don't care even a little bit though, because I love it, and I want a piece of this trend :) This is probably my number one choice for pattern and color, but then I'll need something a little more random and organic to pair with it.
There's a reason that this pattern is also hugely popular and nearing overdone-ness as well. The color combos are so unique, as is the overscaled subject matter. I think its the perfect juxtaposition with the Imperial Trellis.
Bold, but with an organic quality that I like. Both by Schumacher, and I love the charcoal and chartreuse colorways it comes in
Also by Schumacher, these fabrics would bring in more of the colors I love, and definitely make a statement
Or I could play it a bit safer, and go for a softer feel. The fabrics on the left are from Calico Corners, and the bird-inspired one on the right is from Schumacher.
Obviously, I have a split personality when it comes to what direction to go, and what would be a really great jumping point for the space. Opinions are welcome here.....anything to give me a push to choose something!
Have a great weekend!
