Is this fabric too busy?
Suzanne Melges
November 15, 2012 in Design Dilemma
I am recovering two large window seats. I found some great fabric from Ballard Design that I love but I wonder if it is too busy/ clashes with the lattice on the cabinets beneath. Should I use the fabric for accent details, instead? Such as pillows or recover a bench or chair in the room?

I think it is great fabric! I honestly think your idea of using it on a chair in the room might be the best. B/c it has a lattice look it would tie the chair to the window seat. Using it on the window bench would be just "ok" but it does compete with the lattice that is already there. Using it for cushions would also work. I hope I have been of help.

I think the pattern is too similair to the lattice. Recove a bench and use it for pillows.

I like the fabric for the window seat cushion (but don't love it). It looks really nubby and heavily textured so you want to make sure it does not overpower the rest of whatever is in the room or what you will put on the window seat. This may make more work for you but I do not like the lattice you have used for the bottom of the seats. That lattice really has an outdoor sensibility and as such should be used outdoors or in a sunroom type setting. Is there a radiator or something under the seat that needs the lattice application? If not then I suggest getting some antique mirror panels and putting them in place of the lattice. In the picture I attached look at the left side of the closet island... That is what I have in mind for the lattice portion of the window seat.

Not on the bench---elsewhere.

Agree. Too busy and too similar to the lattice. Glad you caught that beforehand!

I'd love it for a cornice above and drapes away from the bench side. Use another solid or a floral on the bench. Lattice and flowers kinda go together! If you're "going grey," a pop of yellow in pillows would be nice!

Thank you for your feedback! The picture I took was of one of two identical window seats that flank a set of French doors leading to a deck. The reason the lattice is there is that under one of the two window seats, we have all of our tv & stereo components hidden there so we need venting. Not sure how I could change this & keep the area vented properly?

I love the fabric, but I think the pattern shape is too similar in shape and size. If you have your heart on keeping it, perhaps painting the lattice a nice grey would work. Good luck.
