Fabrics Galore!

Thursday, March 26, 2009 | Category: Fabric, Material Girls Projects

I have had so much fun these past few weeks picking out paint and fabrics for a client who needed custom window treatments, bedding, and pillows for two living areas and two bedrooms (a guest and a master). It has been so great working with her because she has fantastic taste as it is, and she’s not afraid of bold color or pattern!

As the process normally goes, we went through a variety of schemes initially…(some not pictured!)

Until we found the most perfect solution.

Since it is a relatively small space, she wanted all of the rooms to flow together and have similar color schemes…unfortunately, that meant having to ditch most of the raspberry/reds (that she loves) in favor of cooler colors like blues and greens (But not to worry, she also loves these!)

She has two casual and laid back living rooms (think mid century modern furniture, ebay finds, lots of goodies!)

Here is what we ended up deciding on-

Liv Room 1

Top left: Geometric pillow fabric for sofa

Top right: Dining chair fabric- leaf print (existing)

Bottom: (sorry for the crinkles!) Drapes and roman shade striped fabric

Furniture: Dark brown chair (existing); taupe couch (existing)

Paint color: Teal (nice and funky!)

Liv Room 2:

Left: Green sectional fabric (existing)

Middle: Drapes- Peacock print

Right: Sectional pillow fabric

Paint color: Creamy white

Master Bedroom:

Her master bedroom is my favorite!

Top left: Greek key fabric

Bottom left: Off white linen fabric for wall of drapes (to hide an unwanted door)

Right: Euro sham fabric

Paint color: Off white

Furniture: Deep dark wood- looks almost black (existing- Ebay find!)

Guest Bedroom:

Top left: Polka dot fabric for bedskirt

Top middle: Leaf print for roman shades

Top right: Scenery print for coverlet

Bottom: Stripe for accent pillow

Paint Color: Chartreuse

Furniture: Off white, distressed, twin iron bed

I could spend 24 hours a day selecting fabrics. It is definitely my favorite part of the design process! A bit sad that the hunt has come to an end- but hopefully I can show you photos when it all gets done!
