I am completely in love with the fabric on the left for curtains for the blue living room. What do you think? It’s Suzzanni in Aquamarine. The sample on the right is Alexandria Scroll in Luna from Iman’s new fabric line. I think it’s lovely, but the other one is clearly better in this room. Right? Both samples from Calico Corners. I love ordering fabric samples from them because they have the “large size” option. So you can get a big sample without having to purchase an entire yard.
If I get this fabric, I could also use it elsewhere in the room. I still don’t have a coffee table. But I do have a large, rectangular ottoman whose zebra needs to leave. I’m from Nebraska, people! I can’t do animal prints in my house!
Also, what do you think about the light control element? While I know I would like bamboo shades right now, I think shutters might be the better more classic choice. I put shutters in my first house eleven years ago, and I still love shutters. But in eleven years will we all still think our bamboo shades are lovely? Or will we go back to seeing them as time travelers from our parent’s 1970’s basement?
That’s two things you need to weigh in on: fabric and light control. Opinions, please!
On another note, I wanted to say that I had a wonderful time in Nebraska this past weekend. Thanks to everyone who prayed for my grandma. She had a really good day and seemed to be enjoying herself. I’m so glad I went. I got to be with my mom on Mother’s Day and I got to see tons of relatives that I haven’t seen for several years. The husband was great. He stayed home on dog duty. And I’m an idiot who did not take even one picture . 😦 I hope everyone else had a great weekend as well!
