Ā During this blog, I will take you through the steps of how I picked out fabric that will be featured in future blogs of the creation of curtains, roman shades, dining seat covers, place mats, napkins, pillows, and if I can teach myself how to make slip covers, slipcovers for a sofa and chair. Shown in the photo to the left is a beautiful fabric named Spring Mix Spring this fabric will be window treatments. My window treatments will cover three different rooms because I have a wall of windows that span my breakfast area, kitchen, and family room. I have chosen to use different accompanying shades in this fabric to decorate these three rooms so they all flow flawlessly.
After choosing Spring Mix Spring forĀ drapery fabric for all three rooms, I decided to work on the breakfast area next. First, I picked out a neutral for my dining chair bottoms (7 oz. Duck Natural). The reason for picking a neutral is in case I decide to change accessories down the road these will continue to work.
Next, I want to add the coral/burnt orange color into my breakfast area so I picked a great striped fabric to make a roman shade and place mats, Streamers Russet.
Next, I move to the family room. Here I will use move of the spa colors, with a pop of the coral.
Last but surely not least, I found a beautiful coral/burnt orange fabric that will make some gorgeous pillows and a throw.
These fabrics will be featured in up coming blogs as I create and demonstrate how to make several different items for my house. I hope you will join me in creating beautiful custom designed articles for your home also.
Fabrics used in the design process are all purchased from www.warehousefabricsinc.com
