Decisions, Decisions...

Which would you choose...

Modern and graphic?

Floral and somewhat traditional?

Graphic and traditional?
To re-cover this stool...

Which will sit on this rug...

Or would you choose something altogether different? 

Recently I share another project that I suggested to my daughter, Brittany.  After spending a year and a half on the interior of her new home, she was ready to tackle the outside. I thought the most pressing landscape issue was this walkway...
 Narrow, uneven pathway did not give a good first impression of her otherwise lovely large yard.  I hated the gate!  Here is what Brittany did with this space, re-using the paving stones and building a gate with a door she got at Habitat for Humanity's Restore.  When the plants get a little larger, this will be like entering an oasis.


  1. I second Brit. The traditional floral would disappear and the modern graphic would demand all the attention.

  2. I would eliminate the middle one. The first one might work because the shape of the flowers repeats the shape of the flowers in the rug border but it's hard to tell without seeing the rest of the rug. I would probably go with #3.

  3. I'd chime in, but am clueless when it comes to
    mixing patterns.

  4. I like graphic traditional as well. Not sure how well it goes with the rug, but it is still my preference.


I love hearing from you. Please let me know you visited.
