Fabric Hunting

The office where I work recently underwent a major makeover. For weeks designers were coming in and out with fabric samples, design boards and random accessories. The final product came together last week and it looks great. Loving my workspace has made me think about the space where I spend most of my time, my house - actually I have pretty much honed in on my living room. I don't hate it, but I don't love it either. So I have decided to redo it. It will take a little time as I plan to paint the walls, several pieces of furniture, a do a lot of sewing.

As a first step I started searching for fabrics first I pinned everything I liked. Then I ordered swatches for everything I really liked (10 fabrics), and finally I narrowed it down to four fabrics that I hope will totally transform the space.

Tablecloth for end table and accent pillows 

These fabrics are very different from the current decor in the room. I promise to post some before pictures over the weekend so that you can see what I am working with.
