First of all, I’d like to wish my dad a very happy birthday!! :) You’re the best!
Okay so the official vote is in and the winner is…… TEAL! Once I found out the color, rather than actually working and putting some elbow grease into sanding my new Hepplewhite chair, I spent the majority of Saturday hunting down the perfect upholstery fabric. Now of course if money weren’t an option and my dream fabrics were actually attainable.. I would already have selected mine. Like in about .25 seconds. But noooooo.. Honestly I wouldn’t even mind paying the $130/yd, but you can’t even order fabric from F. Schumacher unless you give them your first born child (or are a registered Interior Designer.. minor details really). It really makes me miss the days of being an intern at a design firm and living in a city that HAS a Schumacher and just waltzing in and picking out whatever I want.. sigh.. Anyways, one day ONE DAY I will upholster my entire house [exaggeration] in Chiang Mai Dragon and Kelly Wearstler’s Imperial Trellis:
derek definitely freaked out when I showed him this entryway.. apparently “but it’s Kelly Wearstler” wasn’t a good enough argument to him. Fine.
So until that day I found some pretty cool [much cheaper and easily attainable] alternatives along the way. Check them out!
for less than $20/yd:
I ended up finding some pretty legit replicas of the Imperial Trellis fabric, but none were in the correct colors. So what do you guys think? Which fabric could you see with a dark teal chair? I may even compromise and change it to navy for some of these fun yellow fabrics.. but then again the Pantone colors of the year are teal and yellow:
so I guess I’m really up for anything! I need some input though! Which fabrics do you guys like? OR do you have the hookup with F. Schumacher? Either way, I’d love to hear what you have to say!
Until next time!
