Neutrals

NOT!!!
Cloudy, rainy day here. I needed a little color pick me up.
I was going to show a few things around my house but its been cloudy since Saturday 
and I haven't been able to take any good photos.
So these will have to do.
I'm out shopping for fabric today for my dining room chairs.
I have no idea what I'm going to go with. 
I'm hoping something just hits me when I see it.

Hello again Nita! I believe the couch contributes a lot in developing the look of every living room. Among those you have presented I love the yellow one and with the shades of green. It fits well a house that is usually painted in white and cream. Thanks for sharing this. :) It maybe cloudy and gloomy out there in your place. Nevertheless, I hope you are enjoying the cold temperature in your home!

These pictures prove that a sofa can be THE statement piece in a room if you want it to be. I think it can be fun to put a funky color or fabric on a sofa..for the wow factor, but I personally prefer to change the look out by adding and taking away fun pillows...a much cheaper alternative too. Good luck fabric shopping..love fabric shopping when I am not really "buying" but just window shopping...of course THEN I tons of great things I want then when I need something have the hardest time...go figure! Have fun and good luck!

Hey Nita...totally love the pillows on the first sofa. I would like to know how to do that. Can't wait to see what you do with your dining room chairs. I am looking at some navy/white Ikat for mine but I can't make up my mind. Story of my life! Hope your weather improves...~Ann

You got me this time! Didn't expect all that color. But I love it. Been thinking the same thing and have a post worked up for tomorrow along these same lines. I guess it's the rain.
Can't wait to see what you choose for your chairs.

I am SO not a fan of this weather! Too many things outside I want to be doing. Hopefully it will be nice again by the weekend.

Where do you like to shop for fabric? I bought some fabric last summer at the place on 23rd street (the name escapes me right now), but would like to find some other places to check out too.

I love all the pillow that look like they were made from sweaters, that makes me rethink some of the items I have boxed up to go to the Goodwill.
Lovely pictures, thanks for sharing

We finally had a warm sunny day here. Everything is so much brighter with the sunshine.

PamelaAnn said...

I love the pillows too!! What a great idea to re-purpose sweaters. A couple of those in bright colors would really get me into the spring spirit about now......

Nita, this is a lovely post. I can't wait to see the fabric you found for your chairs. I hope your shopping trip was successful!

Cute post. I have those sweater pillows marked as faves on Etsy. The sofa has been re-upholstered in a neutral fabric and painted white if you look at that shop. So cute both ways.
Our a/c just won't hold up in this heat...so ready for it to pass.

Hope you're staying cool indoors.
