New Fabric for Victorian Bedroom
Here's the gray-blue fabric for the north bedroom windows/walls. Next is discussion on the drapery function--then I can come full circle with a design drawing. In my head I'm seeing fabric covered buttons and fabric braids for embellishments on the valances. When I squint my eyes I see the blue in this gray, and the same will appear in the wall color "Polished Pewter".
There is blue in this fabric but is not fully appreciated in the above photograph. Up-close the fabric has a grasscloth appearance with threads of dark brown. Forget bringing out the dark brown in accents--not my cup of tea. It is the diamond pattern that wows me, and the shimmer of the fabric. The diamond pattern is texture made by heavier threads and mimics a pattern I love in the living room spandrel at the east bay windows where our Christmas tree sits. See post below Our Christmas Story.
