textiles to drool over.









I mean, I think I have been on a fabric hunt tangent for curtains for the kitchen re-do for about a full month now...there are so many beautiful, graphic textiles out there, but many {most} of them, are out of my price range. Kelly Wearstler's Imperial Trellis in charcoal is my absolute favorite, I just can't seem to justify the cost per yard... & every knock-off of it has been pulled from the market for trademark issues. Schumacher is one of my favorite sites to go to online to drool over, gosh, they have so many beautiful, modern fabrics...{sigh} I then just go on search for a close knock off or something with a similar aesthetic, elsewhere. Oh golly, then there's Galbraith and Paul, {sigh}... their textiles are stunning. All handbcrafted... all so gorgeous.
Sweet Erin works at a dream of a place called, City Craft. Its pretty darn cute, and she has been so great when I have come in looking for fabrics. I purchased this fabric below to recover some pillows in our living room. I am in love with it & can't wait to get started on them. The store has some really great peices and at a really reasonable buy. It is such a happy, bright store you don't want to leave. I am still on the hunt for my curtains... but I have a feeling I might be bebopping back over to her again in a bit... Thanks Erin! Go visit her if you live in the Dallas area... {Inwood Village.}
