get the red out

To go along with my new kitchen and paint color, I needed to reupholster a few pieces of furniture. I had an arm chair re-done a few months back in the stripe below, and I just sent my small red sofa out to be done and to get it out of the dusty mess. I'm doing the sofa in a solid sage green and I've been shopping for fabric to do the seat cushions for my kitchen chairs. I wasn't coming across anything combining my two colors of sage green and Wedgwood blue. At long last at Calico Corners I came across a Ralph Lauren fabric that would work.
It's called Cottage Rose in Prairie Blue. I also found a second fabric to do the desk chair in, not sure of the name but it's the one with the bee's, and the colors are great together. The floral will be in the breakfast area adjacent to the keeping room. I'm a bit matchy/matchy when it comes to color and wanted all the colors in the open area to flow.
Both fabrics will be here in a few days, then I'll get to work.
There's no more red in my kitchen or keeping room anymore. All blues, greens and browns now. I'll have to show you the end result next week when it's all back together.


  1. Perfect! Ralph is such a doll to always come through for us :-) hehe. XOXO

  2. I love the fabric! My kitchen and family room have a lot of red. I was just thinking the other day how nice it would be to change the colors. =)

  3. Love it! You had me a Cottage Rose and the blue is a bonus.

  4. Very pretty. My kitchen is blue and white and I've wanting to go over to red. You'll love your new blue! :)
