I’ve been trying to come up with a regular feature like I have seen on so many other blogs: Simply Seleta has Wednesday White, Keen and Fitting has Bathroom of the Week, and many blogs have an Etsy Finds feature or something similar, so I wanted to do something to offer my readers recommendations or finds they might not see other places. Tonight as I was
wasting productively spending time browsing the amazing fabric selections on Fabric.com, it hit me: Why not do a fabric finds feature? Not just for the crafty DIYers who sew but for design inspiration?
I love getting inspiration for a whole room from one fabric. Sometimes I see a fabric and rack my brain trying to figure out how I can use it. Other times I just buy it and hold onto it hoping I will find a place to use it eventually. So now I’m going to share my fabric finds with you and hopefully some readers will use them and I can live vicariously.
Recently I have been working on a design for a bachelor and am having the best time coming up with more masculine inspiration than I usually get to. I have been thinking vintage minimalism or warm minimalism or something like that in my head and was searching antique map images, etc when I stumbled upon this series of fabric from Waverly:
I love the graphic nature of these numbers but the warm sienna color keeps it softer…
I love the softness of the last two–they would be such pretty textural pillows on a feminine linen sofa, or even pretty and interesting curtains. All of these are reminding me so much of what Restoration Hardware is doing lately. I am dying to go into one of their new massive showrooms (only in LA, NYC, and Houston I think). Has anyone been? I would love to hear your impressions…
