I know when I get the living room set up I’ll need to consider curtains, maybe shades of some kind, and updated pillows.
To that end I pulled out my own stash of fabric that might work in the new living room now that the flowered love seats have been moved into the conservatory.
I found a roll of gorgeous grey interwoven with natural canvas. This fabric is too stiff for curtains but might make a wonderful framed valance or pillow cover or ottoman upholstery.
I also have the printed fabric from the mid-century chair I recovered. I think there’s enough for the seat of a padded bench in the mudroom and some pillows for the living room.
Finally I found a soft, creamy-colored textured cotton which would look great on some pillows.
I’ll be looking for a fabric that drapes well near the color of the first fabric above, the canvas, to use for curtains. I like curtains that continue the color of the walls so the room is not broken up too much.
One thing is for sure, the Smith and Noble roller shades in the light ochre color which used to match the walls are going to be changed. Either I’ll recover them with something new or get rid of them altogether. I must say they have held up over the past 15 years very well.
Do you keep a stash of fabric? Paint?
