My idea was to look for a graphic fabric that I though would last longer in his room and give it the funky vibe I was looking for. Then I would make a roman shade out of the fabric. Here are the fabrics I found online that I like.
These fabrics are from Tonic Living. I have ordered pillows from them before and they turned out perfectly. They are a Canadian company that has great fabrics at reasonable prices, and I don't have to pay duty and extra shipping to get them across the border.
However, none of these fabrics relate to the sailboat fabric. Which means I probably won't be using it in the room. I'm going to put it away and hope I can use it on some other project, some other time. Let's just say that my husband isn't so thrilled about spending money on this part of the project twice.
Here's a reminder about the paint colours I have chosen for the room.
I don't know why I always go about this so backwards! I know you should choose fabrics and then pull your paint colours from them but somehow, I always make that mistake and then I'm stuck like this with walls already painted in a colour I love and no fabric. Maybe it's because I have such a hard time finding fabrics I like here in Canada.
Seems like I'm moving away from the original design plan for this room. Some of that is because Elliott has chosen differently than I thought he would. It's also because I'm having so much trouble making decisions about it.
Today I'm leaning towards the grey chevron fabric. Any thoughts?
