It took a while to figure out the accent chair fabric. I originally thought of using micro suede and found some swatches before deciding to use velvet instead.
I got more swatches but nothing seemed right.
The blue was either too dark (like navy blue) or too light (almost grey). Or somewhere in between.
I felt like goldilocks and thought it was going to be near impossible to find the right shade – not too turquoise and not too teal.
I even looked into peacock blue.
Nothing seemed to work.
Until today when I got a brand new swatch -Spa.
It looks turquoise under certain light and a soft teal in others. And it’s velvet too! It’s the lone swatch on the left.
The first piece I’ll tackle after I order the fabric will be the ottoman followed by the armless chair.
The other will be more of a challenge and will require sewing. (Which means I may need to bribe people 😋)
Either way it feels good knowing I was able to choose something.
