The homeowner was tired of the print and craved a simple look in neutral linen. While linen can be washable, you need to be willing to embrace the rumply wrinkly look and possibly some fading, which she was not. After auditioning dozens of samples, she landed on a linen look indoor/outdoor fabric by Sunbrella.
This is heavy duty stuff and should take whatever the kids can dish out. She has the coolest collection of middle eastern rugs and textiles and this neutral color will be the perfect blank canvas for fun accessorizing.
