My front room chairs

I have been loving my new menswear slipcovers in the front room, but I felt like something was missing. I think it was because all my prints were small or solid. Then I remembered the second set of slipcovers I had made for my chairs years ago made of black and cream toile. I pulled them out to see if they'd work with everything else I had going on.

I thought they worked pretty well, so I am going to give my white set a break for a little while.
I had topstitched brown pom pom balls along the bottom edge.

I think the large print is what I needed for a little "wow" factor...or at least it's fun to look at something different for a bit.

Here's the whole room put together  (I missed the overflowing shoe basket in the corner...that has baseball gloves, bats, and back packs piled up on it)

I messed around with my pillows for a bit...I am not sure which I like best

I even threw on the steel blue/cream houndstooth too...just to see. Any opinions? Solid, pieced, or houndstooth?

I am in love with the toile! I'm for the pieced pillows said...

There's no way to decide which one is better -- they all look great for differrent reasons. I am so in love with those toile slipcovers and the pom pom is to die for :)

I am a lover of toile but still haven't found a way to bring it into my home. The brown pom pom trim is a very nice touch.

Wow, that looks amazing. You did a beautiful job on the slipcover and your choice of fabric is perfect! I love that fabric and have been trying to get a hold of it somewhere online but finding no luck. Would love to know where you got it.
