Super Summer Fabrics

If you’ve been in Chicago for the past few weeks, it doesn’t seem like Summer will ever arrive.  Yesterday I actually saw people wearing winter coats and hats, AND IT’S THE END OF MAY!!

So, while I’ve been dreaming and longing for Summer I came across some new fabrics that would be fabulous in a Summer home.  You know, that little weekend cabin, cottage or condo that’s the place you go to kick off your shoes, open the doors and windows and relax with a cool beverage.   Take a look and see what you think.

For the seaside retreat on the East Coast:

Robert Allen Peninsula    

This would be fabulous on a couple of club chairs, paired with off-white and perhaps a little cherry red, grass green or even coral thrown in.

For the Northwoods cabin:
Robert Allen

This would be great as pillows on a leather sectional, with a couple of Ikat patterned chairs!

For the sophisticated condo :
Kravet Samaria 635

This could work as a drapery fabric, pillows, or even on some rattan chairs.  Paired with a subtle stripe and a carmel solid it evokes the islands without being too “beachy”.

These can be a jumping off point, a place to start and let your mind wander.
What kind of summer place do you own or dream of?
