I received my February fabric books and reminded myself that I needed to share fabrics with you, and let you know you can purchase from me. Do you make to do lists? I am the queen of lists. Just not the best at crossing items off my list. Shiny object! That reminds me of another thing worth sharing.
Have you heard of Jones Design Paper Works? It's a great way to get motivated to stay on top of your lists. I've been a member in the past and still use her cute lists! Here are a few samples of her work.
Back to fabric....It's been on my list of things to do forever. If you're ever interested in any fabrics I mention, I will ship free samples for you to touch and compare to other colors in your space. Also, on my to do list is to list the Sherwin Williams color strip the fabrics most closely represent. Does that make sense? Color reads so unpredictably on computer monitors. I felt that if there was an objective way to compare color and be totally confident that the sample I'm ordering will work beautifully with my colors, it would be awesome. Am I the only one wishing this to be true of fabric companies? So let the Fearless Fabric selections begin! So! I will try to do that on a fairly regular basis. I would like to say that I will do this once a month or whatever other amount of time, but I'm sure that won't happen.....life gets busy!
This is a wonderfully textured fabric. It most closely represents SW strip G. In my opinion, this is a great "neutral" for everyone. I hate the word neutral. Ok, I strongly dislike the word neutral to describe color, but you know what I mean. I typically would not say a color works for everyone, but this color fits the bill.
Another characteristic I look for in a great fabric is interesting details. This is a metallic fabric. Check! - interesting detail. Also, a great "neutral." It closely represents SW strip E. Again, an everyone kinda shade.
I didn't accidentally duplicate these last two photos. One is a cotton sateen and one is a velvet. I love textures! Yes, I'm one of THOSE people that love white. I've discovered most people in my neck of the woods think I'm cray cray.
Here are few photos for inspiration. This is from a client's family room project. These window treatments almost got me fired by my workroom. They were grey silk with a sheer overlay. I LOVED THEM! So did my client. My workroom wasn't happy, but they made them, and they are gorgeous!
These fabrics will be the first listed in my new online shop, The Boutique. Check back often for more selections!
