The fabrics available are unbelievably beautiful, and many of them are unbelievably expensive. $250 a metre???? Tracey kindly guided me to the more modest end of the spectrum where we found some lovely fabrics and I purposefully kept away Schumacher's siren call.
I particularly loved some of Thibault's fabrics. Never thought I'd be a pink kind of girl, but I do love it with green.
As well as price, there were a few other considerations. Firstly, as I'm the only female in a house of males, it couldn't be too girly. So, no to pink and big florals. Secondly, it had to be kid friendly, so no white/pale coloured backgrounds. Finally, I didn't want it to look formal. I want a nice, relaxed and comfortable look. This is what we ended up selecting (excuse the bad photography).
From left to right: Curtain option 1, curtain option 2, fabric for two armchairs by the window (sigh) and seafoam material for cushion.
I ended going with Curtain option 2 as I thought the room would need an injection of brighter colour.
It's all slowly coming together.
