Nearing the finish line...

If you've been following along, you know that I'm helping my friend make some design decisions for her living room and dining room.  Previously I posted some fabric options for her to consider for her living room.  Well, it has been an evolving process.  Good news - final fabric decisions have been made!  See below.

The fabrics from left to right will be drapes, sofa, pillows, upholstered roll arm chair.

Originally, we were looking at Annie Selke's scramble fabric for the roll arm chair, but couldn't find the perfect color.  As an alternative, we found (and love) the John Robshaw Prasana fabric because it resembles the curves of Annie Selke's scramble fabric but also has a touch of red.  If you remember, my friend's dining room has red walls so this will tie in nicely.  

To refresh your memory here are the furniture pieces that will find a new home in her living room:


Roll Arm:

Wing Back Chair and Accent table:

{Ignore pillow, rug and paint sample on wall}

Now imagine these pieces upholstered in the fabrics above (obviously, not the leather wing back chair).  It's all very exciting and I can't wait to see it all finally come together.  To say I am living vicariously through my friend is an understatement!  


  1. It is all STUNNING Fran. She is beyond lucky to have your help. I'd live with 100% of these choices any day! :) They could all just go right into my living room, thank you very much.

  2. Excellent information and facts. Only real difficulty I was basically receiving was viewing the pics. No idea exactly why.

  3. I'm such a sucker for that English roll arm. And hooray for fabric decisions - they look great!

  4. Great choices! I hope you share images of the custom upholstery and the room all put together.

  5. Love them all! Great job. What is the leaf fabric on the left please? Thx!

  6. Great choices, Fran. I actually prefer the John Robshaw over the scramble - love the red and the larger scale. Hope we get to see it all done!


  7. Beautiful selections, Fran! I especially love the John Robshaw fabric - so pretty with a little bohemian element. Can't wait to see it as it unfolds!!

  8. Nice job selecting the material. I really hope you keep us updated!

  9. Love the sofa and the roll arm chair. Can you share who the manufacturers are? I NEED them both in my life!

  11. Hi, I love the leather wing chair. I am looking for something similar, something that has very traditional lines but still with a modern flair. Can you share the manufacturer of this chair? Thank you. I do so enjoy your blog.

  12. Great ?V I should certainly pronounce, impressed with your website. I had no trouble navigating through all tabs as well as related info ended up being truly simple to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it in the least. Reasonably unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or anything, web site theme . a tones way for your customer to communicate. Nice task.
