Crazy Fabric Lady

As one of my 2012 goals is to get our condo pretty-fied, I've been looking at all sorts of different fabrics recently.  What started out as a hunt to find the perfect oversized gingham to use for bedroom curtains turned into an hours-long session on the Thibaut website that ended with me trying to figure out a way to wallpaper and reupholster every surface.

The Netherlands Check in Wheat is exactly what I was looking for.


Geraniums 

Hydrangea

  And I'm thinking either the Geranium or Hydrangea pattern would be fabulous for our guest bedroom, a la this Meg Braff-designed room.

 

Carnival.  Isn't this the most charming toile for a child's room?  It also comes in pink and in green.

Wolverhampton would be perfect for a custom dog bed for my Jake.

 Equestrian.  Very similar to the elusive Schumacher Tally-Ho.


 Oriental Toile.  Fun fact: this is the wallpaper in the downstairs guest bathroom at the Robert E. Lee President's Home at Washington and Lee University.

Which one is your favorite?

Blue toile or Hydrangea... Both are very bold and take serious commitment to pattern!! I would probably chicken out...haha!

I'm obsessed with the blue toile! You can't go wrong with any of these, they're all classic & timeless.

I am looking for a reasonably priced version of that check. I cannot find it anywhere and want it for curtains in my living room and dining room. Grrr.

Love your new look :) I love toile, but I could never have the "traditional" toile in my house simply because it's Carolina blue ;)

YOU have a fab new design by Marina, and I lurrrve it! Well played.

You also have a bevy of beautiful choices here . . . I lean towards anything horsey or Chinoiserie related, so I adore those two options. But I also like that toile a lot. And also the rest of them. Sheesh.
