Fabric and Stripes1:39 AM
I think it's the blogger right of passage to embrace stripes. I don't know what it is...I cannot resist stripes. I love a good striped shirt, striped walls, ticking stripe, striped napkins, striped straws. Even things that resemble stripes like beadboard, planking, wood floors--you name it. The thing is, they are timeless, and go with just about anything. I think we all love them because you can't go wrong. They are modern, vintage, and classic at the same time.
I have been hitting up my local fabric store and finding some amazing fabrics on sale for $3.50/yd! I have gotten several beautiful stripes and have been hunting for a place to use them in my home. What can I say...I have a fabric addiction. In my own defense, I do seem to eventually find a place to use them. In any case, take a peek at the goods!
First up, a classic, blue+white stripe. I am thinking of using this one for my dining room draperies.
This one I was also thinking of using for draperies. It is a statement fabric. I could also see it for pillows. Because of how strong the pattern is, I don't think I could tolerate the pattern on a daily basis on an upholstered piece. When I first found it, I thought it was the famed David Hicks "La Fiorentina". I should have known better, but even still the pattern is amazing.
