My Favorite Summer Trend…Teal and Lime

Blue and green have always been my favorite colors. When my sister-in-law and I set out to pick fabrics for the living room in our family’s beach house, we were not quite sure what color scheme we would go with. We had decided to get brown leather couches due to kids, dogs, sand and water, which meant we needed some bright, summery colors to make it feel like a beach house. We spent a couple of hours in one store and just couldn’t find the right thing. We walked into the next store, and there it was! It was teal and bright green….and perfect! We loved the embroidery and the linen background.


Empire Linen in Endive found at Forsyth Fabrics in Atlanta, GA.

 Once we found this fabric, we were able to easily find all of our accent fabrics. The store was full of teal and chartreuse fabrics that reminded us of the water on the Gulf. We also found some fringe and cord that worked perfectly on our pillows. We used this fabric as our main fabric to cover the chairs, make stationary panels for the french doors, and for one of the pillows on the couch. The room is close to being done, save for a few more accessories. Here is a sneak peek!
