From this list, I started working through design thoughts and applied my usual approach for starting a new design plan.

|P Kauffman Fabric|
2) Fabric: Find a fabric that builds on your color scheme. I went to lots of fabric stores and saw lots of great prints. But I kept coming back to this P. Kauffman print. It has a coarse texture, almost like burlap. I loved the rich print and the broad color palette and it echoes the mood that's been established for the house. Best of all, with the open floor plan, we can play on the broad color scheme in different areas of the house.
In our case, the creams, khakis and greens look great. If I was going to live there, I'd probably go with green, but since we need a neutral palette for a potential buyer, I'll probably go with a pale khaki on the walls. What do you think? Does that make sense?

What's next? Well, now I can take this foundation and start on the kitchen design. It's time to get the cabinets ordered, so we'll be ready for install. Stay tuned for the kitchen plan!
