So earlier this week I went to the showroom with every intention of ordering the l’Arbre de Matisse fabric to reupholster the Napoleon settee. After entertaining a few other ideas, I finally decided that it was the fabric. But when I saw it in person, I was so surprised at how disappointing it was. Here’s a photo I snapped of it:

Do you see what I mean? It just didn’t have that oomph that it had in all those photos I had seen. It also didn’t help that they only had two of the colorways on display.

The trip wasn’t a total loss though because I spotted two more patterns that I’m kind of crazy about. The first one is Potalla:

The other one is Lysette:

Yeah. So I decide on a fabric and somehow end up even further away from finishing this project than before. What? Well, at least it’s becoming obvious that I want something floral and organic. That narrows it down, doesn’t it?!

I’ll contemplate that over the weekend and see you all Monday. Have a great weekend!

why is it that doing up our own homes is such a painful, drawn-out process? at least, like you said, you’ve narrowed down a style! 😉


Thanks so much for taking time to comment! I read every one and reply through my own comments.
