Kate is looking for some design ideas: Thanks to cats Ida and Oscar, the time has come to reupholster the dining room chairs I inherited from my grandfather. I want a fabric that matches the style of the chairs (what would you call it, by the way?), will fit with a number of color schemes, yet is not neutral or boring.

I would describe my style as a combination of Victorian/Edwardian 20's art nouveau, 30s-40s Hollywood, and New England farm house.

Any suggestions for colors or fabrics in general, or specific ones and where to find them, would be wonderful. The new upholstery does not need to go with the rug in the pictures, by the way. The rug was a quick fix and I don't love it. Thanks!

Please add your ideas for Kate to the comments below....
