I just got back to the studio after visiting the Brunschwig & Fils warehouse sale in White Plains.
Some of the planet's finest fabrics for breath-takingly low clearance prices. I wish I'd had a LOT of money to spend!
The part in the foreground, still on the roll, the mottled pattern, is the wrong side- can you believe that???
When the light shines through, here is what you see:
This is without a doubt The Most Fabulous Fabric in the World!
The second I saw this bolt at the warehouse I knew it was the one.
I imagine I'll use the reverse side as banding, or possibly the valance- since these shades will be top-down, or top-down-bottom-up, and will need a valance to cover the mechanism.
Behind it we think we're going to put another shade, a sheer of some sort. It's always fun to experiment on oneself.
If there were enough room, I'd also put a blackout shade in there somehow! But then we'd have a headrail projection halfway into the room.
This is the second post today, so just scroll down a bit to the next post to see one of the valances we delivered this morning.
