If you are fabric obsessed like me, you have likely seen Brunschwig’s “Les Touches” fabric.

Historically, this pattern has come in three colorways–black, cognac and red.  However, last year the Brunschwig introduced some “fresher” colors in this great pattern.

Blue and White Fabric Find….

I want to do blue and white for our guest room and have previously shared these two inspiration images.

Yesterday, I received an email that Thibaut is running a special until the end of the year (which I am, of course, passing on to my customers).  So, I decided to hop over to their site and just browse around a tad.  And low and behold, look what I found….I really, really like it.

Thibaut

 

I still am in total love with the Brunschwig fabric in the top image.  But it is CRAZY expensive (like retails at over $350 a yard) and I have to pick my crazy splurges carefully.  While Thibaut fabrics aren’t bargains, they are generally pretty reasonable as far as “trade only” fabrics go and they have such great products (and often have coordinating wallpapers).  One other thing I love about Thibaut is that they offer room views to accompany many of their fabrics and wallpapers.  I don’t know about you, but it really helps me envision things better when I have something more than a small swatch to view.

Anyhow, I think I am going to pop over to the design center to pick up a sample later this week.  We shall see.

Blue and White Goodness

Well, sorry for the silence but things have been VERY busy around here.  We moved to an apartment last week and our renovation officially started today.  In fact, I had to run by the house today and demo had already started.  Yikes.  I was going to snap photos but my camera battery was dead….plus I was trying to follow around/placate my 3 year old (love them school holidays!) and my nearly 1 year old….it was a challenge.  Luckily my builder had a professional photographer in today to take “before” shots so I am going to try to get a hold of some of those.

Also, my office is so completely jammed with furniture, etc. that I can barely open the door so my working arrangements for the next 4-5 months will be interesting.  Apartment life is already seeming small….but maybe I’ll lose that 20+ lbs I want to lose given we are in a third floor apt and I’ve got Harry to carry up and down, the geriatric beagle to walk, etc.  Adventures I tell you!

In any case, you may recall I am thinking of a blue and white color scheme for the guest room.  How is this for inspiration?
