Fabric Possibilities For My Chairs…

I realize that all my posts have been ‘help me decide’ lately – but I have been making so many decisions and processing so many projects that looking at inspiration photos seems, well, uninspiring. I am looking for some fabric to make cushions for my Chinoiserie chairs and below is a collection of really lovely and fun fabric choices that are all available for under 20 dollars per yard (some are 50% off at right now).

I thought you guys out there in the blogosphere might enjoy them – also to be fair some of these fabrics are not upholstery material – but I thought I would include them anyways as I am considering making some throw pillows as well…. And if you have any recommendations for me in the process – you know I love them!

And isn’t it just fitting that this barn in Roxbury that we all blogged about a while back is his? The reserved and yet rustic renovation of this classic barn makes laid-back living seem like the ultimate luxury.
