Found it!

July 29th, 2010

I have found the fabric that is going to revolutionize my living room.

Okay, that statement may be a little BOLD.  Let me rephrase..

The fabric I have found is going to be the Pièce de résistance of my living room.

Okay, that’s not much better is it?

Anyways, if you haven’t figured it out already I am QUITE EXCITED about the fabric I scored for my living room.  Here’s the scoop.

So I have been stalking the fabric- Schumacher’s Chiang Mai Dragon – for awhile now. {and apparently I’m not the only one doing so- look here and here.}  I’m not sure if it is the vibrant color that I am drawn to, or the Asian inspiration, but I knew I needed this fabric to tie my first floor together.

But man is it EXPENSIVE!!! One site showed it at $203 a yard! GULP!  How was I going to pull this off?

First, like any good blogger, I jumped on the internet to see what kinda deal I could score.  20 minutes later I was sad to discover no such deals existed.  One Person wanted upwards of $150 for one pillow made of this stuff!! Say WHAT?

Next try was to bug my buddy Lily of O’brien and Muse.  She is a Interior Designer and I thought I would see if she would be up for buying it for me at her cost and I would pay her back. What are friends for right??  So I shot her an email to see what she would think. Next thing I knew she was emailing me back to say it was my lucky day. She had a remnant of THIS EXACT FABRIC that was leftover from a project she had done for a client!! And better yet- she would give it to me for far cheaper than $200 bucks!!  I don’t even think I had finished reading her email as I jumped into the car and sped over to her office before she could change her mind.

I’m still trying to figure out what I want to do with it! Pillows? Cornice Boxes? Ottoman Fabric??

Such Decisions!! Stay Tuned!
