Well while things are moving along I decided that it was time to start taking fabric selection a little more seriously. For my bedroom the choice was easy. When I say easy I mean after looking through about a million fabrics I saw this one and it was love at first sight. The fabric is from Victoria Hagan Home and I'd be lying if I said it was affordable. It's not. In addition you have to buy a minimum of 3 yards. I had a feeling it was going to be expensive (why do I always seem to gravitate to things that are out of my price range?) though I was hopeful. After my hopes were dashed and I closed my gaping mouth I decided that since this is going to be my forever home and since I work really hard and since my birthday is coming up I would splurge a bit on my sooner or later to be sanctuary. Don't get me wrong, I will only be purchasing the minimum and will just use it as accents in the room, maybe for pillows or cornices. Meanwhile every other room in the house is getting a $1.00 a yard fabric to compensate for this-Ha!

At any rate this is the "jumping off point" if you will. Now I've go to coordinate. Here's some potential candidates. Keep in mind that I don't know what's going where yet. I'm just gathering memo's to get ideas.
|Stout- Faulkner - Camel|
|Stout- Delphi- Pecan|
|Stout- Omni- Wheat|
|Stout- Lowell- Tan|
|Stout- Apalachee- Dove|
In reality these fabrics do go with my inspiration fabric but on the computer...eh, not so much. Here's a picture of all the contenders:
My husband hates the zebra print. He thinks it looks like something Ice-T's wife Coco would wear. Um, I guess. I'm kind of partial to a little animal print in small doses. What do you think?
Anyway, for the walls I'm going to go with a soft grey-blue color. I haven't actually picked out the color yet but that's what I want to do. I'm either going to go for the same color in the sitting room and the bedroom or darker/lighter shades of the same color in the two rooms. The bathroom is probably going a darker shade since it's going to be mostly marble and there's some good light in the room. I'm going to be doing a rather ambitious project involving the clawfoot tub but I'm going to keep it a secret for now in case it turns out to be too difficult to execute.
Decisions decisions. Well it's a start at least:)
