Adding Warmth to the Kitchen

My mom and I started our day with two goals: find fabric for the kitchen windowseat and find fabric for drapes in our bedroom.

We were not successful with the second goal, but we excelled at the first goal!  Not only did we find fabric for the window seat, we also came up with an entire pallet for the kitchen and den.  I was wanting to warm up the kitchen which is full of cabinets, tile, tin tile backsplash and granite with some fun fabrics that would pull together all of the colors that already exist:  fudge, antique white, oil rubbed bronze and green.  I think we were successful!  I apologize for the lighting (that makes some of these look like they don't exactly go), but I know some of you are anxious to see!

The walls will be painted the far right color, Crocodile by Behr.  We will be using the green fabric next to the paint swatch as accent for the roman shade over the sink and as throw pillows on the window seat.  The blue fabric was the inspiration for it all!  I am so excited to use this on the actual window seat and as throw pillows on our dark brown leather sectional in the attached den.  Finally, the far left fabric is being used as accent pillows on the window seat and sectional, and will have green velvet cording!

The layout for the window seat will look a little something like this...

Love the fabric we brought back today!
