Bargello seat covers - new colors

by brae  

Here is one of the benches with the other items selected for the main floor of the mill. The stain, the settee and the foxes all have yellow/red tones, and the blue cast in the bargello was killing it all.  I chose new colors in a grey/brown combination.  The darkest brown will be the lattice and the others the "diamonds" inside.  I think it will work much better than the blue/greens I had and should be a more subtle pattern as well.

Awww… I love the blues and greens. Peacock colors.

Of course, I can see how they might not quite go with your couch and rug.

You are absolutely right. Boy, the blue ones are pretty, though.

The new colours will lend themselves very nicely to this build. I still love the blues and greens though!

Hi Brae! I love it when a project takes over and starts to be bossy…. says “not like that….Like this instead!” LOL! I think your mini bargello looks lovely and I agree that the color shift is a good idea! Those muted earth colors will look so homey for Gustav…. an Earth creature if ever there was one! :) I am sure you will find a good place for the blue footstool too!

When it is placed all together I can see what you mean Brae. I do however love the sofa with the rug which looks Bang On together.
oh dear- as the saying goes “the best laid plans of mice and men…” or um, in this case gal and gopher &#59;D
