The boys are camping (father and sons campout) and I can't sleep when I'm in such a big bed alone (not complaining...I'm loving being lonely). So where else would I turn but

The next step in my living/dining room is textiles and I'm a little stuck. I haven't been able to figure out what colors to incorporate into curtains, pillows and rugs. I want it to be colorful and eclectic, but also cohesive. While this room is a bit much (the entire house is like this!) inspired me...particularly because it had yellow walls and green chairs which I also have.

I would certainly tone it down a bit...lose the hanging things and a more muted yellow. But otherwise I would feel invigorated if I were in this room. I definitely want more color in my home! What am I afraid of? So then I went to and I was kind of taken by these bold prints.

This for a vintage feel...

This for a more modern feel, which probably is more fitting with what is already there...

What do you think? Of course, give it a couple weeks and I'll have something totally different in mind!

  1. I actually really like the vintage fabric. The other seems a little more little girlish. But like you said whatever looks best with what you already have! Good luck!
