Swatches arrived. Change of Plans.

Good thing for swatches!  The plan for the guest bedroom has done an about face. 

The swatches showed me the room has too much cream and really doesn't need more. I really started to favor the two white based fabrics on the left. 

I still like the fabrics below, but not for this room. 

Then I fell for these gorgeous coordinating pink fabrics from Duralee (I think from the Fuchsia set). Aren't they great? Best price I saw was $35 a yard. Not good when I'd want at least 15 yards for the duvet & pillows. 

Then my friend J and myself fell in love with Schumacher fabrics (she was working on her master at the same time).  Of course Schumacher is "to the trade" only.  But I found a way to keep the orange & blue look that I liked by using Schumacher's Chiang Mai fabric (in the aquamarine color way). And since we lived in Shanghai, I thought the dragon would be a cheeky addition to our home. 

The look for the new bedding for the guest bed... Ta da!

I'm waiting for the Euro shams to arrive - I ordered in Schumacher's Betwixt in Navy with Ivory. It's an amazing woven. I The swatch works well against the new Cuddledown duvet I ordered in Sapphire.

And also waiting on these summer weight 600 thread count sheets with a navy stripe. 

Almost coming together into something real!!!
