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!!!
