Getting Interested in Interiors Again...and a Question
Good morning all! I used to be an obsessive lurker here and even posted a few times. Always loved reading others posts and looking at all the lovely pictures. Then we started moving with my hubby's job and we moved so often and we were renting and I just lost heart & interest. So, we've been in this location for almost a year & I realize I really need to try & make it look like a home. So, the first major thing I need to do is the living room. I have two upholstered club type chairs that need to be recovered. They're currently done in a red & cream toile and they're worn & dirty. My couch is still fine, though a trifle too soft, but it's huge with huge arms and I really would like a smaller one with English arms and a tight back. And I'd like an area rug for this room. So, I'm wondering should I select a fabric for my chairs first, and find a couch & rug to coordinate with that? Or, should I get a rug and pull colors & fabrics based on that? Looking forward to hearing your advice!
