I wouldn't say my space is lacking for colour - but I want to add more pops of colour in shades of pink, yellow, gray, and white - I'm really loving the freshness of white right now. I plan on doing this by changing my current accent pillows (which I've never been too crazy about in MY space all though I do love them). I also plan on having a few upholstery projects in my near future...so fabric is on the brain! Here's some that I'm particularly loving...
The trellis print - made extremely popular by uber fabulous designer Kelly Wearstler. It looks good on basically everything from curtains to chairs to rugs to pillows to walls....it's pretty no fail.
I love a good chevron print. Rubie Green's East Village is fantastic - and eco-friendly!
The every popular ikat print...which shows up in every design magazine at least once:
The suzani print. This fabric looks great covering large pieces or framed and hung as art.
The otomi fabric has been spotted here and there in design mags for good reason - it's fantastic. Love it on large pieces like headboards and used as coverlets.
My all time FAVOURITE - Schumacher's Chiang Mai Dragon. I forsee this in my hands in the near future:
It's sooooo perfect, no? The colours the prints...the hidden dragons. I love it so much it almost hurts. Almost.
I came across this print while searching for something with the Chiang Mai Dragon feel without the cost - I think it achieves that:
I love this Aviary print and keep coming back to it. I think it would look beautiful used in a girls room - it's playful but not childish.
I've never been much of a floral girl but oversized florals that aren't too pretty have been catching my eyes too:
Yeah, my choices may not be the 'safest' but you definitely can't call them boring! Am I the only one going crazy for fabric right now? I see accent cushions and an upholstered headboard in my very near future....
(By the way - if anyone knows where I can find the chiang mai print online for a good price PLEASE let me know!)
