I've loved this fabric for as long as I've known about it...I first remember seeing it years ago while honeymooning in Mexico.
At the hotel spa and bar I was served drinks on these lovely coasters. I became a bit obsessed and had to have some of my own. (I hadn't noticed them in the states then but they probably existed somewhere). Fortunately, the concierge at the hotel was nice enough to track them down for me - they were from an interior design store in town and I quickly went for a visit. I swooped up bunches and a pretty large fabric piece that I still haven't made into anything yet. I always thought I'd frame it but now I'm thinking pillows. My only regret...not buying everything in the shop!
What I didn't imagine then (and what I'm totally in love with now) is the increasing use of this fabric as coverlets in the bedroom.
This color is so amazing and adds a nice touch of funk to an otherwise classic room.
If you are completely committed you could upholster a headboard.
The pillow idea.
I'm completely smitten over this kids room. I was in the midst of doing this post when I noticed Andrika over at Nursery Notations had just covered the same topic. Pop over there for some more inspiration - it's where I found this image. Such a happy room for the littlest member of the family.
Happy Weekend Everyone!
