The best layed plans of mice and men just don't work sometimes. I had these gorgeous fabrics and wanted to use them all together. Well, that turned out a dismal failure no matter how hard I tried.
This is a look at one senario for how to mix them. Really looks bad in real life.
Another try and it is even worse. I finally figured out what the problem was, and it is the background color of the gorgeous embroidered piece. It turns a sort of dirty green brown next to the others. (How come I couldn't see that before?)
So I just eleminated that one piece of fabric and now have a look that I can live with. The dark pillow and the small rectangular are both old pillows from when we first moved in 5 yrs. ago. Guess my taste hasn't changed all that much. lol However since they match the tableskirt and drapes, they still work beautifully.
I also used this fabric for the jelly roll pillow I gave you the tutorial for here. Love this fabric.
This fabric is reversible, so I made the pillow with the dark side out on one side and the light on the other. Love that I can change it around and get double duty out of it.
Here's the light side.
Now we are back to the dark side. Both are so pretty.
I think for right now I am going to use the dark.
Just a tiny change but one that makes me happy when I see the room.
Ok, now to work on other areas of the house. I need to spruce up the master bedroom, so I am hunting for inspiration. Guess all the decorating and fluffing never ends. Maybe that beige embroidered fabric will work in there? Hummmmmmmmm Got me thinking.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I always look forward to your visits.
