I ordered 6 yards of this cute fabric from Spoonflower this past weekend, and I'm really excited about making some cute curtains for my living room! For some reason, I am really taking the slow and steady route with my living room...don't know what's gotten into me. It is driving me crazy for it not to be done, but I am taking forever making decisions. It's like, I love everything, and I hate everything. And, once I've decided on something I like, after I think about it for a week or so, I hate it. I think I blame Pinterest, blogs and overstimulation when it comes to design. I see too much! Do you guys ever have that problem?
Anyway, I think I am in love with this fabric, though, so hopefully it's a safe bet. I actually really loved a pink/white/coral combo that I saw in the same set on Spoonflower, but I knew that pink curtains would probably be a little too far for Jordan, so I decided to reign it in a little, and go with pink on orange, instead. I plan to just make simple panels to hang from a black rod, coupled with a bamboo shade. I really like the curtain/bamboo shade look, though some might argue that it's getting old to see. I still like it! I'm trying to bring more color back into the living room. I have a weird pattern of wanting LOTS of color for 75% of the time, then I crave a clean slate, aka white space for 25% of the time. Is that weird? Yes.
Here's the fabric I chose. It's from Fable Design, and I love it.
The repeat is really big, so the pattern is large. This, I like. I was having SUCH a hard time finding cool fabrics for a decent price (Sorry, $75/yard is not in my price range. Why are there not great fabrics for a great price here in Atlanta? I see decent stuff at Forsyth and Lewis and Sheron, but nothing ground breaking. Welcome to the south, I guess. Not that this Ikat is ground breaking, as far as design goes, but the bold colors are a little different. I found so many more cool fabrics on Spoonflower that I plan to use as accents in pillows and shades an stuff. This website is where it's at, dudes.)

I got sort of frustrated from Pinterest after searching for images. Most things had improper link-backs. I guess this is what everyone is complaining about! I even found photos of rooms from my own house when searching for images, and they were improperly linked. It kind of stinks when you see photos from your house, but they are linked back to Design*sponge, etc. Hm. Know what I mean?
OK, this post has been a little chit-chatty! Sorry for the rambling...carry on! I'll let you know when I get my fabric in,and curtains hung!
