Do you ever look at a piece of clothing and wonder why (WHY?!) don’t we make home fabrics in colors and patterns as gorgeous and fresh as fashion fabrics?
Today I am shopping for a fabric or bedding for a client’s master that looks just like this Rebecca Taylor skirt.
I’m going to swing by ABC to see if there is anything new for me on the bedding floor. And speaking of ABC, who’s joining me for the Madeline Weinrib sample sale this week? 40-70% off this Thursday through Monday, in the clearance basement at 881 Broadway.

Oh! I have to be in the city thursday at 4! I'm coming is early! Thanks for the heads up!
I can never find upholstery or bedding fabrics as nice as fashion ones. I'm glad to know it's not just my little city! I often use fashion fabrics on cushions and low wear things though…loving the fabrics I found at my local fabric store recently – they remind me of the fabric for your cushions http://mydesignethos.blogspot.com/2011/05/im-in-love-with-floral-fabrics.html.
WHY dont I live closer to NY so I can just swing by ABC when they have sales like that?!?
How fabulous to live in NYC with all these resources at your fingertips! BTW, are you attending Blogfest? Janell
Jenny-I'll be at the sale in spirit! Wish I could go.
Oh how I wish I was in NYC. I'm dying to get a MW rug, DYING! About fabrics, I think that all the time. Or I think, why can't this curtain/wallpaper/stationary be a home fabric?!
I long for more fabric choices too. Especially inexpensive ones in more colorful tones. Are you listening home fabrics? I would love, love, love to join you for a sale. If only I lived in NYC…
Me! Thanks for the reminder…love the basement at ABC.
Oooh, great sale. I'm definitely going to try and stop by! Thanks!
I agree! The fabric that i use to sew my clothes with would be great for home decor also.
Thank you!!! We just moved and our master has cobalt wallpaper with a tiny detail on it, it's livable (we are trying to be selective about what we repaint) but you just changed everything :) My favorite curtains that I had no idea where to put are a mint damask. You are the best!!
I'm actually thinking of painting my home office a lovely minty green like this
It is so tough to find anything in this colour.
I totally agree! I'm always drawn to clothes that would make great upholstery or pillows. And then I buy a shirt that doesn't look good on me just because I love the fabric!
Wow if we lived closer I would sure be checking this out!
I work in the fashion industry, and every day i see the most stunning fabrics that need to be for home decor. I have a few yards that i want to use for pillows, they just are really delicate, and need to be backed…. i totally know what you mean!
i love the colors of that skirt! please do let us know what bedding you find!!!
