Thrifting: Fabric for Upholstered Headboard

Took some pics of my new kitchen...and forgot to bring the usb cable along with me. Darn it. Sunday it is. Anywho, while thrifting last night (for the record I try to hit this specific shop 2x a week but I may have to up the ante since I JUST MISSED a perfect midcentury cabinet & hutch for $49 freakin' dollars) I found the PERFECT fabric to use for my upholstered headboard project. I haven't started this project because fabric is always the most difficult thing to track down and the one I LOVE is totally out of my budget. But this one has a similar feel with oversized florals and branches. I'll call it grandma chic lol...



It's actually a huge duvet cover and pictures do not do the colours gorgeous. Hot pink, teals, greens, browns, oranges, blues....soooo nice. I plan on keeping the rest of the room fairly simple (rethinking the graphic wall but we'll see) and the bedding white - this will make such a big impact. Trust me you gotta visualize it people :)

Oh and guess who just won a Williams-Sonoma Home Cashmere Throw?!?!? Yup! Me! Thank you so much to Heather of Habitually Chic. This has totally made my weekend. Merry Christmas to me!


What colour to choose?!?!

Enjoy the weekend. Do lots of shopping. Listen to lots of Christmas-y music and Drink hot chocolate...with marshmallows!

Visualizing is something I always struggle with. I ususally need to see a picture of the whole thing and then go, ooohhhhh yeah, now I get it.

Congrats on winning the throw, that will be totally luxurious!! Which color are you going to choose?

Thanks! I'm thinking I might go with the Ivory...that way it will always "work" with whatever decorating decision I make. It'll be my first cashmere item so I guess I'm playing it safe :)
