The fabric is just wrapped around the seat of the chair- not stapled in place yet.
My next step (other than upholstering the chairs) will be the windows. I have enough of the duralee "diamante" fabric from my dining room left over to do the windows in here and I think I like these fabrics together, although I'd kinda like to pull in some persimmon red and/or citrine yellow- what do you think?
The windows in here present me with a bit of a challenge:
- I love the natural light from the bay window, but we need some degree of privacy since the window faces my neighbors house
- The view through the bottom half of the window is of the shared side yard between my neighbor's and my house and it's so sloped we haven't had any luck getting grass to grow there. We affectionately refer to it as "the dirt hill"- yeah- it's not pretty.
- There's not enough space on either side of the bay for full drape panels to hang.
Now I'm not sure if I'll do a more traditional cafe curtain like I had on the windows before (but hanging from rings instead of shirred and perhaps with some degree of pinch pleats?), or if I'll do sleeker flat panels that just fit the window as shown on whitehaven interiors:
cool, right? They were inspired by this MS room:
In either case I'll trim them in peacock blue.
I also have to decide what (if anything) will go on the top half of the windows?! And I plan to change the cabinet hardware and update the chandelier a little. Stay tuned!
