choosing fabric for my dining room chairs

Kim at Savvy Southern Style is giving away a copy of The Great Color & Pattern Collection signed by the author, Betsy Speert, to promote Betsy's new  Blog.  But don't go enter....because I want to win it :).
Seriously though, I am very excited about a Tuesday feature on Betsy's blog.  She answers design questions submitted by other blogs.  I will be posting lots of questions on this blog!  

Here is one:

I think my dining room could really be improved by changing the fabric on the chairs.  However, I have no idea what to pick.  The room is not used very much (Christmas, Thanksgiving, other large family dinners...) but it is seen when someone walks in the front door.  I am including lots of pictures to show what I am working with. Any and all suggestions welcome!  I think I am pretty tied to the paint color since we have that dark trim all over the house, but if you have ideas....please tell.

This is a yard of fabric that I purchased to try.  I like it, but I am not sure.

A few other ideas from Ballard Designs:

Small Check Toffee

Scandicci Gray

Tuscan Vine

Also, don't forget to check my giveaway here.

Thanks in advance,



  1. I like the gray damask looking pattern, modern and popular right now, yet traditional too.

  2. I love the sandicci grey pattern. Good luck!

  3. I actually like the paisley (the first one you have on your chairs) hehe

    Thanks for stopping by at The DIY Dreamer :)

  4. It would be too easy if everyone picked the same one :). Please keep the feedback coming.

  5. Thanks for visiting and your nice comments and good luck on choosing, just go with what you like best, you won't go wrong.
