Fabric, Fabric, Fabric

What a difference fabric makes in our homes. Consider how your space would look and feel if all the wonderful textiles were removed - your home would be a lifeless, naked shell. The abundance of fabric in our lives is a testament to our love for beautifully woven threads - silks, linens, cottons, and even polyester.

This past Saturday, my friend Jackie and I spent a few hours in one of our favourite stores - Designer Fabric on Queen West. We were like kids in a candy store, searching for the perfect colour, texture and pattern.

We are (finally) working on several projects for Jackie's home now that the draperies for my condo have finally been completed. For those of you who have been waiting, here are photos of the completed living room curtains:

My next project, as you know, is to reupholster the occasional chair I found this week, and I need to purchase 3 yards of fabric to do the job. I found several options, and although my first idea was to use a stripe, I am considering many other possibilities:

Option #1 is a robin's egg blue with chocolate dots,
(no content info), $20.99/yd:


Option #2 is a white, robin's egg blue & beige combination,
(55% viscose/45% polyester), $41.99/yd:


Option #3 is a plush robin's egg blue swirl,
(100% microfibre face with 65% polyester/35% cotton backing), $14.99/yd:
