Decisions, Decisions….

Working on my own house is by far the most challenging project for me. I love so mnay types of design that picking and choosing is quite perplexing. Today I scoured the design center for pillow and chair fabrics, and so here are some of my selections.
I am mad about this melon, cobalt and white historical toile from Schumacher for pillows (in person-stunning). Just not sure it’s the color scheme I want to run with in the living room.

I also love this yellow floral type pattern from Cole & Son mixed with a graphic mod brown and white pattern from Schumacher. Clean, bright, funky.

Another route is the of-the-moment kelly green…coincidentally, by Kelly Wearstler for Designers Guild (forefront fabric by Lee Jofa). Hmmm, not quite right for my room, but I love it.

And in the butler’s pantry I am so excited to wallpaper the back wall of the cabinet with a funky David Hicks hexagonal wallpaper….but perhaps not this color.
I painted this bathroom what was supposed to be a very spa-like celery green which came out more neon green. So in rethinking it, I am tempted to use a delicious wallpaper (since it will probably only take one roll!) And this Kelly Wearstler print (seen above) is better in this application than on pillows. I am favoring the yellow and white- although the chocolate is one of my all time favorites, a little too heavy here. I sense a yellow trend being formed.
We were given this dining set by Andrew’s grandfather and although not my first choice, I think if I laquer the chairs in red and recover in a fun, graphic pattern they could look very vintage modern. Ooohhh, perhaps zebra!!!

And finally, my office complete with new zebra West Elm rug from Mom and Dad for my birthday. I have great new IKEA sheers and desk and am going to paint it tomorrow the LIGHTEST lilac color I could find. Am a tad nervous it will turn out like a pretty, pretty princess palace….but worth the risk. Could look, in the words of Tyra, FIERCE.

That’s it for now, I’ll chart my process as I go to help illustrate how I work, my style and that you don’t have to spend a ton to have a great looking home!
