Toile and leather . . . a happy combination?
Recently two chairs were removed from the media room
and given to my son to use in his new home.
They left a bit of a space for me to fill.
Rather than buying new chairs for now,
I brought in my hubby’s favorite chair that was in his office and used to be in the family rooms
of our past 3 homes. It is dark in color, a classic flame stitch pattern, and I wanted to obtain chairs
of a lighter fabric to brighten up the room. However for now, this chair will be just fine.
I went into my pillow cover stash and pulled out some pillow covers
that blended with the colors in the room.
I chose three patterns. Two were toile and one a floral with a bird motif.
The floral pattern was a given. Then to decide on which toile pattern fit the bill.
I had two toile patterns in the running, the one you see now and a cream and red toile.
I liked this one, and my hubby liked the other.
So what do I do? I used a life-line and I phoned a friend.
We were both on the same page! 🙂
The brown and cream houndstooth patterned pillows remain on the sofa.
A few accessories added to the tray on the ottoman to bring out the colors that are in the room.
This lamp along with its mate was in the great room
and I moved them to the media room when I replaced them with the blue and white lamps.
Taking a photo straight into a window is a bit tricky,
so I put the camera on the aperture setting and this is the result.
I am slowly working on this room, especially on the opposite side.
Where the kitchenette is.
I am also re-styling the bookcases on each side of the television.
All this in due time, in-between my travels and family commitments of the summer.
So do you think that Charles Faudree would have approved of the Toile and Leather?
I think so!
Have a wonderful day!
