Fabric Fixation

For the past few months, I've been on a serious fabric fixation. I think it all started a few months back when I came across some great fabric for lumbar pillows for our living room { the pillows are finally done} I love this fabric its adds the perfect extra touch to our living room, I'll share the pillows soon. The fabric is called Key West from Calico Corners.

Then I was on the lookout for some more amazing fabric for my bench makeover. When I found this amazing modern grey and white fabric called Blythe also from Calico Corners. For more on the bench re-do click here.

On one of my many trips to Calico Corners, I had been eyeing Dahlia Aegean fabric and the Dove version both are so pretty and modern. I know the fabric would compliment our dining room re-do so I added the fabric to our Ikea curtains which added the extra oomph I was looking for. For more on our dining room re-do click here.

While browsing online last week on, I found some more amazing decor fabric at amazingly affordable prices. I usually don't buy fabric online because, I'm a very visual person and like to touch and feel fabric (see if its the right color and weight for a project etc.) but I was impressed with return policy and low shipping costs { they also have fabric samples available}, anything over $35.00 ships for free. Free is a good word!

Now for the fabric I found for two different rooms in our house. I really like the fabric below, its made by Diversitex called Postinio Indigo. The fabric style reminds me of a Ikat fabric, I've been digging Ikat for quite some time and like this version of it. The fabric was on sale for $6.64 per yard! Regular price is $18.98 per about a deal.

The next fabric I found is modern print by Amy Butler called Fresh Poppies. I like the gray and gold mixed with the light pink flowers. This fabric was only $8.98 per yard another deal! I'm hoping the fabric looks as petty here as it does in real life.

I hope both of these fabrics add the extra interest for both rooms in our home. Any guesses what I'm going to use the fabric for?

{ I ordered the fabric on Friday and it its already on it's way to my house! }

Oh and why I'm on the subject for fabric they have an amazing selection of outdoor fabric. I'm not sure if I'm going to DIY route for pillows for our front porch. Here are a few fabrics that caught my eye.

Waverly Lenox Lacquer for $12.98 per yard. I saw an outdoor pillow with this fabric at Home Goods for $12.99 - you can make 2 large pillows for $12.98! Plus the cost of stuffing which is a affordable.

P. Kaufman Soho Pool for $10.98 per yard. I love the contrast of the geometric print with the dark navy blue.

Tommy Bahama Redonda Coconut $10.98 per yard. I like this neutral fabric, it would make great indoor or outdoor panels

Have you been on a Fabric Kick too? I just adore fabric, its one one the easiest and most affordable ways to update a room or add extra Oomph.



  1. I love the Amy Butler fabric! I want to use a similar Amy design for a mahogany floor lamp I'm updating. She has some fun designs! Also like the geometric prints you've highlighted... Fabric is definitely an addiction! :-)

  2. I LOVE fabric! You can do so much with it and really dress up a space for nothing! Great selections!!

  3. I love the combination of gray, white and yellows that you've found in these fabrics. Looking at fabric can be addictive, can't it?

  4. I just ordered a ton of fabric from Friday too! I had never ordered from them, but the price was to good to pass up. I love the 1st fabric & the name of it totally makes me smile :) And the Amy Butler fabric is totally fresh. Luv it too!

  5. Dreams - my mouth kept dropping open! I could not get over their prices are so good!!

  6. I love all your choices. Love Amy Butler too. I ordered from twice now and so far so good! I even ordered that same ikat fabric you got but in yellow. Might use it to cover some lamp shades.

  7. New fabric is such a great way to update the overall feel of a room. I haven't started buying fabric online yet, but seems like a great resource for it.

  8. Charmaine - Yay I'm glad to hear you've like the fabric you've bought from them thus far! I just love that version of Ikat too - the yellow version really pops!

  9. I love the Key West print, when I was redoing my dressing room I bought two pillows from Colour and Scheme (Etsy seller) in that fabric. They are lovely, but didn't work in that room. I'm still looking for the perfect place to put them. I totally love fabric and can't wait to learn how to make my own pillows. Cause you know how much I don't sew! ha

  10. I am totally on a fabric kick too! And that key west print is so fabulous. I'm dangerously close to becoming a total copy cat and doing everything you do. No worries; I'll refrain! ;)

    I can't wait to see how the Amy Butler fabric is used in your home. I absolutely love Amy Butler and I'm sure that however you use it will be extremely impressive! Your house is so cute!

  11. Oh those are lovely fabrics!! I get overwhelmed whenever I go to fabric stores... I see so many things that I love... I will have to stop being so indecisive the next time I go!

  12. I love that grey and yellow fabric--so pretty! I too, am a visual person, but at those prices I might not be able to pass them up!

  13. I love! And all those picks will have going over there right now. Can't wait to see what you do with all of it!

  14. LOVE the curtains. You have me thinking about how I can sprice up my own!


  15. Dear Mrs. Chic~ I am in love with your style...:) lol I love everything! So nice to meet you! Stop in and visit...I have some curtains I added fabric to the bottom to, too...:) Meme
