Sometimes you just need to let yourself play and be creative . This is a snapshot of my inspiration board at the magazine and it’s basically me just playing around with fabric and paint swatches.
Often times I’ll come across a fabric or wallpaper full of colour and pattern and I can’t help but make a scheme around it. This vintage-looking floral fabric is from Designer Fabrics on Queen St. West in Toronto and I was thinking about upholstering a curvy headboard with it. Paired with light and bright bedding I would make two big fat Euro shams with the David Hicks brown and white graphic print. A total contrast to the floral, but that’s why I like it. Then the brown and white stripe would be a fun bedskirt I thought. The blue/green and saffron coloured fabrics were just me experimenting with other colours to throw into the mix. I think it would be one or the other though!
And here’s one more collection of fabrics, this one centring on this fresh tree of life pattern. I love the faded looking stripe with it and also a touch of leopard! Crazy? Maybe. But that’s why it’s fun to just mess around with ideas and sit with it for a while. Maybe give it a try when you’re working on a scheme for your room.
P.S. Sara hates the leopard!
