One thing I barely DIY is anything using fabric and/or sewing. Even if I were to make a simple envelope style pillow cover I’d be patting myself on the back more than had I just built a new deck or something.
However, a recent project I’m working on DID have me searching for a new fabric and one of my favorite websites for fabrics is SpoonFlower.com. They have such a variety of fabrics, anything for any project. While I browsing I came across a few patterns and color schemes I would LOVEEEE to be able to use someday, but I never would. They’re too bold, too exciting, and too wonderful for my style. Instead I’ll just pin them onto a I wish board and dream that someday I’ll do more in my home than neutrals and solids.
Watercolor Herringbone in Pink
I love the colors, the patterns, the patterns within patterns. It’s all so exciting and would so great in a young girls room or a tween I think!
Black & White Triangles
I think this one appeals to me because my recent obsession with the organic leggings that are popular for kids. I’d totally buy a pair of leggings made of these for her!
Bouquet Navy Large
This one screams to me…calls my name…pulls my heart…turns me into a puddle. I picture this one as a big accent piece in a fancy living room with bold accent colors and gold trimmed furniture.
The Doctor --- I didn’t name these, don’t look at me
Again, not sure why this one appeals to me. Again, I can picture them as leggings. But I still wouldn’t be able to wear them… too bold. But I know many fashionable ladies that could ROCK this as leggings.
I am not sure even how or where I’d use this fabric, but I do love it. Perhaps as a headband for baby girl, or maybe as the top part of the current trending moccasins.
Do you like any of these??? Am I weird? Sometimes I really wish my décor style was bold enough to use colors and patterns like these. Then sometimes I like the calming nature of neutrals and solids…feels comfortable, homey, calming.
I asked the other day which fabric you’d pick for an accent piece of furniture: 1, 2, 3 or 4 top to bottom:
Hands down 3 and 4 were chosen. And this time I did it – I went with something a little more “fun” for my piece of furniture, I brought home #3 ….. I’m still waiting on a few more items to finish the piece so no reveals yet! But soon!!
