~~~This "live" session is now closed for questions, but I will hopefully be doing another "Ask Emily" post in the near future. Thanks to everyone who participated and for all of your great questions!
Good evening! Welcome to my first live design Q&A blog session. I'm a little nervous, since this is the first time I've tried this--so go easy on me :) If it's successful, maybe we'll make this a regular occurrence around here. . . .
Just to recap, you can post your questions here in the comment section, and I'll respond there, as well. To keep seeing my answers and other questions, you'll need to keep refreshing the page. I'll answer as many as I can for about an hour.
I'll get things started by answering this question I received earlier today from a reader:
When decorating a family room, what sort of formula do you use when determing how much pattern/color to mix. I am making curtains in a blue-green and citrine on white ikat, and there are so many patterns I'd like to use for pillows that I don't know how to narrow it down. Should the pillows be in pairs or is it okay to have all different fabrics? Should one color be more dominant or is it okay to have an equal amount of blues and greens? The patterns I am considering are a blue-green and cream zigzag; citrine trellis; a subtle blue-green, citrine and cream houndstooth; and a solid spa blue with a zigzag pattern. Can you give any advice? Thanks!! Noelle
I'm posting my answer in the comments section--now!
