Here is what I am working with to refresh you memory. Leather chair, white sofa and beige La-Z-Boy recliner. (This is the one I found at GW for $20.) It replaces a much larger recliner, and fits the size of the room so much better. (Take note of the drapes, they have to stay, so something has to coordinate. )
The beige on the recliner needs to be replaced and it is definitely the wrong color beige. So I am on the search for the perfect thing, whatever that is.
I use two different groups of pillows mostly, so I am including those here to see how fabrics coordinate.
The plaid pillow matches fabric that is on the top of the drapes, so it definitely stays. The next pillow is a fabric that I also made table runners for the breakfast room table so the two areas coordinate.
This is the second pillow combination that I like to use in here. Since I have the dark leather chair, some dark in the pillow fabrics seemed to tie things together.
I was really looking for a neutral fabric of some sort, maybe some kind of a cream or something, however, I didn't want something as light as the white sofa, and yet I didn't want really dark either. There were a ton of fabrics that were stunning in silk, however, not for a recliner. I came home with four samples, non of them right.
This one looks so yellow it is really not good at all.
This one has more of a rusty tone and is ok, just that, simply ok.
I really thought this was going to be perfect. This one is a creamy color, but then it looks dirty next to the sofa. Whites are hard to match up, I think I need more contrast.
You can see here that none of these are good choices. I think I will look online and send for some samples.
Ok, guys, I need help. What should I be looking for and what color do you think would be great? Maybe I need to get rid of all the pillows I have and look for a print for the chair, then I can use solid color pillows, or maybe one pillow in the same fabric as the chair. Help, give me some imput.
Also, just a reminder, don't forget our SUMMER CLOCHE PARTY this coming Tuesday 7/24.
