Well, this is how we pick a border around our house. First, we lay everything out in the living room floor and we audition a ton of fabrics that won't work...see discard pile below.
After we narrow it down to just a few, we lay them out and everybody looks and votes.
And, then I sleep on it and make the final decision. In this case, it was black, tan or green. I dreamed last night that I used the green and I didn't like it. So, it was the tan.
Take care and have a great Saturday. Lane
