our family room, some more updates


earlier this week on my blog i shared some of the things that i bought for our family room, and yesterday i made another purchase.  i finally decided on the fabric for my pair of antique channel-back chairs.

i have been trying to decide on a fabric for months now.  here is what the chairs look like at the moment.

DSC06457i inherited them from my grandmother after she moved in with my dad and for as long as i can remember they have had this fabric on them. 

i originally wanted to cover them in a bold pattern.  something like this romo fabric…


pattern: adelphine

then i decided that a solid would be a better choice for me since i like to change things up so often.  i was thinking of using a dark slubby linen.  something like this p. kaufman fabric.

Slubby Linen Steel

that went out the door when i found and bought these drapes from west elm in an almost identical slubby linen. 

Nailhead Linen Window Panel

i didn’t want the chairs to have the same fabric as my window treatments. so i was on the search again. 

i have always loved the java java print from quadrille but wasn’t ready to pay the price tag that comes with it.


but then when i was at lewis & sheron yesterday and i found the PERFECT fabrics, not only for my chairs but also for an accent pillow.


DSC06444pretty similar to the quadrille fabric but it is a printed linen.  both fabrics were only $16.98 a yard.  the geometric pattern is for the chairs and the ikat is for my accent pillows on my sofa {the one that i haven’t made a decision on yet}.  and yes, i know i need to steam my window treatments.  i was just glad i had time to get them up.

now the search is on for some more fabrics for accent pillows.  i know for sure that i’m going to throw some orange in the mix.  i like these ryan studio pillows a lot.  you can purchase them through inside avenue.

i like this thomas paul print,


and i think he’s pretty cute too.

NEW! Shrimp Postage Pillow Sham by KOKO

i’m sure i’m going to end up with a mix of all different pillow fabrics. 


billy and i are headed to the beach for the weekend.  we are flying down to palm beach to stay at the omphoy hotel.  i’m so excited…not only because we will be staying in an amazing hotel but also because we will be celebrating our 2 YEAR ANNIVERSARY.  i can’t believe that we got married two years ago.  time flies when you’re having fun.

have a great weekend!
