Last month's Traditional Home featured a really vibrant and colorful house in Chicago by designer Melanie Elston. The whole house is pretty cool, but the living room is my favorite. The windows, walls, and floors are perfection. And did you see the chair upholstery?
Here is the same fabric, this time used for curtains in designer Steven Gambrel's front room.
I love the colors and the playfulness of this fabric, but it is expensive and trade-only and thus unattainable for a lot of people. I found some similar fabrics retailing online:
Schumacher's Zenyatta Mondata in Peacock $118.75/yd
Schumacher's Ric Rac in Pool $118.75/yd
Robert Allen's ZigZag Layers in Tide $56.70/yd
Still expensive, but quality upholstery fabric usually is. I think any of these prints would look beautiful as upholstery, curtains, pillows... anywhere!
