Well I have some good news and some bad news. Remember all the work I had put into my living/dining room? Well the bad news is that my love affair with gray and yellow is over, over for my living/dining room I mean, it just wasn’t meant to be. I know, I was a little heartbroken, but I got over it and moved on. We decided that it was best to remain friends. Gray can be a challenge to get along with! Maybe you will be the right fit for gray!
I decided to change the fabric because I had ordered this rug and dining room chair.
I absolutely loved both of them but they made my Gateway Gray paint color green! Even though gateway gray is a green gray, I was really hoping to accentuate more gray with the gray rug and chair. The rug is a blue gray. My beautiful yellow and gray fabrics just were not working in that room. All the grays were different shades!
Remember my friend Heather from Renewal Home Decor, just like a good friend will do, she listened, helped me stay focus, and suggested this fabric.
I saw this exact fabric at Ballard’s last year and remember thinking, “that would look great with my gateway gray”. However as time passed, I began a new love affair with yellow and gray and thought they were the colors for me!
I’m very happy with the choice I made. I think it looks great with the chairs, rug and paint!
Calico Corner even had it paired with yellow! So maybe just maybe I can use something like this fabric and still be able to get my yellow and gray fix!
However there is one slight problem with the new fabric, Hayley says the fabric looks like raccoon tails! What? So now I am second guessing the fabric! I sure don’t want raccoon tails hanging on my curtains!!
So please be honest with me! Do you see raccoon tails?
How do you like this fabric compared to the yellow and gray fabric? Have you been able to use yellow and gray with no complications?
Oh and what do you think about my rug and chair choices?
