Thanks for everyone's help on my dining room drapes issue. I think I have finally decided and I'm going with a solid chocolate brown color. My friend, Jill, mentioned she thought I should also recover the dining room chairs in a coordinating fabric. I think that is a great idea! However, I think I am going to recover a chair for my living room first and then recover the dining room chairs.
I still need your help. My dining room and great room flow together. I'm getting a red couch and I'm thinking about recovering this chair to match it. I'm getting a little more daring these days, and I'm thinking about stepping out and going a little different than my traditional style. Do you think this chair and ottoman would look good with this fabric? Keep in mind I have children, hence the juice stain on the ottoman, which is the main reason it needs recovering.
The couch is the color of the redder circle on the right and the drapes are the same chocolate color as the background. What do you think? I'm terrible at visualizing how something will turn out by a little swatch! Please vote in the poll on the right. I know there are a lot of you out there that have great decorating sense. Thank you for your help!
