Fawning Over Fabrics

Some girls gush over designer purses and name brand labels, many love diamonds and expensive David Yurman and most covet all things glamour.  Don't get me wrong, I love it all but I just die for a good fabric swatch.  I know, so weird.  There is something about putting together prints side by side and beginning the creative process that slaps a big ole smile on my face.  I'm getting giddy just thinking about it!  Speaking of giddy, my living room swatches, from Calico Corners in Richmond Va, recently arrived and I am beyond smitten!

I'm envisioning the navy/white geometric print and the green/white buffalo check tossed on the couch as pillows (Two 18x18s and a neck roll).  I'm still searching for another color to sprinkle in with the pillows, but I think these selections are a great start!  The third swatch is my current front runner for drapes and I'm seriously considering an animal print accent.  Wouldn't that be fabulous?!?   

I held the swatches against the small square I painted in the living room and I'm in love.  Remember, I used Benjamin Moore's Kendall Charcoal and I couldn't be happier with the color.  Looks like I'm ready to move forward with pillows and drapes, and get mom is a seamstress and makes all my home decor at $0.00 labor costs!  She is ahhhhmazing.  She gives me kick pleats, throw pillows, roman shades, shower curtains, bed skirts- you name it, she makes it!  How'd a girl get so lucky;)

In more important news...T.G.I.F folks.
