Fabric L-O-V-E-S of the week

Basically fabric samples rotate around my house by the week.  I have some that stick around for weeks and others that don’t.  Here are a few that I am crushing on this week…we will see if any of these make the final cut for my family room.

Real Home Tour- Travelmoon

A few months back I had a pleasant surprise in my inbox.  A friend from my childhood that I haven’t seen in 15 years was looking for someone to sew her baby bedding.  She already had some gorgeous Quadrille fabric picked out, which I was excited to use.  Anyway, in this reconnection I also got to start reading her blog, Travelmoon.  It is a fabulous lifestyle blog with a ton of interior design included.  Her house tour is fabulous and I had to share it here.

Chair Dilemma

So I bought these chairs (6 of them) on craigslist for $120 total, five years ago,  after my daughter fell over on our current ones for the second time.  These chairs were a great color and the most sturdy chairs you have ever seen.  The main problem with them is that the style is not my favorite.  It wasn’t when I bought them and still isn’t.  
So, my dilemma is…what to do about kitchen chairs!?! 
I have found quite a few chairs that I love, but I tend to like more modern ones.  With that style comes a stability problem with little kids.  Here are some looks that I love but I am not so sure any of these chairs are sturdy enough for my monkey children…

The ones I have now were such a great deal and so, so sturdy.  I may just wait it out a little bit longer until I am ready to spend some extra money to get what I really want.  
What do you have for kitchen chairs…any recommendations of some that you love?

Auburn - I vote that you wait until you can afford exactly what you want, but I do like the ones you have. What if you painted them a fun color??

Laurel - I love your current chairs. Keep them and let my monkey girls be their true selves!

Tanner, Avery, Benson, and Bela - love the style in the 3rd picture. I wanted to get barstools in that style but had the same concerns with them being sturdy enough… I've always loved the color of your chairs too tho!

Nancy@OwensOlivia - I have chairs similar to PB's Napoleon chairs. They have taken quite the beating from my son. They are holding up really well, but I am like you. I am not in love with them. Unfortunately, I am forced to wait until Matt gets a job. I like your chairs, but I agree with Auburn. Just wait it until you can afford what you really, really want.

Color Inspiration- Blush

Sometimes I can tell which color I am into at the moment based on the clothes that I am wearing.  The last few weeks I have been very into the color blush.  Here are a few inspiration pictures with some pretty blush accents…
Anne Coyle.  This one has a little bit more of a purple tint to the pink, but I love it too!

Horizontal Striped Curtains

Bold horizontal stripes are everywhere these days.  I get inquires for horizontal striped curtains quite often.  Surprisingly it is very hard to find a bold striped fabric, so many of these stripes you see have been made by alternating two different fabrics.  I just finished a set using two different colors of linen for  a client.  Besides the fact these need to be pressed, they turned out great.

Nancy@OwensOlivia - Hmm, you just gave me an idea for my bedroom. Love it!

Marcus Shields - Monica (my sis) made similar curtains to these. She has black insted of brown though, they look really good on her patio doors

Angela Dowell - How much are the two color bold stripe drapes? iI would just need panels. No groments or rod pockets. I need two pairs for two windows 108″ long. Text me at 662-207-7181.
