Hope your weekend is going great. All over and done with down in my part of the world and Monday morning I've woken to a rather gray day and it looks like it's been raining over night. Oh, well, I suppose the fabulous fall weather had to end eventually.
With the change in season, I am finding I'm focusing more on projects to be finished - yes THAT BIG LIST again.
This time it's curtains for the master bedroom, and the family room.
Now as you know I chose this fabric for our master room headboard.
And the purple is the wall color - all four walls, though one is a mirrored wardrobe too and another is a sliding door out onto the patio.
Not that it's any closer to getting the headboard done, but... well, good things take time - at least that is what I'm telling myself.
So the conundrum for the curtains is this - do I go simple white/off white (boring??) or do I go color co-ordinated. I could have chosen the co-ordinating fabric to the headboard fabric, but it was a tad too much I thought, all stripes in yellow, purple, pink and green. I did find a nice off white fabric which had a thin purple stripe in it (intermittently), but felt that it could be like sleeping in a room with a white sheet hanging on the window - and yes, we've probably all done that in our student apartment days, and I'm all grown up now, so want a big girl room!
These are some options I've come up with
The Samples from Martha's Fabrics - a fabric heaven in Newmarket, Auckland.
The check is actually reversible, white check, or purple check.
The reverse side
The darker purple fabric, I think might be adding too much purple in the room.
I love the lemon and white print, but again I think it's adding another major print to the room, given that we already have a striking print for the headboard.
Then there is this stripe which i quite like...but....
However, I think I’ll be going with the reversible check fabric, using the white check as the side facing the room.
Or... there is another option. Go with a plain velvet headboard (silver gray??? or even a dark purple) and use the original headboard fabric for the curtains.
