Office Fabric

The bathroom upgrade is almost finished and the next project on our list is tackling a little upgrade in my home office. I’ve been working an inspiration board for the space and while pulling together my sources I realized the fabric I’d picked for my window treatments – a sample I’ve had for years – is no longer available! I’ve searched everywhere and cannot seem to find it online. It has been discontinued and I don’t think the odds of finding it are very good.

The fabric is even prettier in person and at $10.99/yard the price was certainly right. I’m still not willing to accept that this fabric is gone forever… but in the meantime I guess I’m off to find something new. Let me know if you have any suggestions! I’m hoping to find something with some green tones.

On another note, here’s an update on the bathroom redo:

  • paint walls
  • install subway tile above shower / grout
  • buy shower curtain rod / install
  • find window treatment fabric / order / decide on a trim color (I’m waiting for a few swatches to come in from graylinen.com)
  • sew window treatments / hang
  • order new light fixture / hang
  • frame mirror
  • paint shelf / hang
  • paint cabinets
  • install new cabinet hardware

Things are coming along. We did have a few set backs – like when we decided we wanted two separate light fixtures instead of one and knocked a whole in the wall only to discover that due to a stud we could not run the new wiring. So technically you could add “knock a hole in the wall for new light fixture, change mind about new light fixture, patch the hole” to the list. But the end is in sight!

I mentioned in my master bath plan that I know the style window treatment I want, I just don’t know what fabric to use. To refresh your memory, here are the colors we’re working with…

Here are a few of the fabric options I’m considering,

1 – I love this fabric, I’m just concerned that the scale might not be right for the space.

2 – I think a golden yellow would work really well with our wall and cabinet colors and this would be a subtle way to introduce it.

3 – I can’t decide if I love this fabric or if I think it looks too grandma-ish, but either way I keep coming back to it.

4 – I picked this because it is vaguely reminiscent of this – which I love, but sadly think is waaay out of my price range. Besides being out of my price range I don’t even know how I’d go about tracking that beauty down…

5 – This is fabric is all over Pinterest and the colors are perfect, but I may have a hard time selling BW on this one. It’s very floral, in a good way… but, floral.

6, 7 & 8 – These are much more neutral. I think all three of these would look great with a contrasting trim. Similar to the width of this,
