Later that day, I went to High Fashion Home to find fabric to make dining room drapes. For over a year, our sad dining room has had only a table and chairs, no other decor at all. With the holidays approaching, I'd really like to get this room into shape for when we have family and friends over. Here is the current state of things:
Remember, I said I was looking for fabric like this? Well, when I got to the store and found the fabric below (Dwell Studio Vintage Plumes Peacock), I couldn't walk away from it. Even when the salesperson told me how expensive it was- ug! I think it will be the perfect punch of color and add interest to the room while still being elegant. I'm really fond of the colors in the fabric, the blues and gold, and think they'll compliment the colors in our living room.
I also ordered a natural fiber rug from Pottery Barn, which should arrive soon.
