Ok, so this is what I decided.....

Below (2nd pic) is one of my guest bedrooms & this is the fabric I decided to go with from Fabric Supplies via Etsy. It's around $7.00/yd versus $90/yd for the Rubie Green 'Marilyn' fabric. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the RG, but perhaps I'll save that expense for the master bedroom. I think this fabric I chose is close enough & my guy may even try to re-create the same headboard in her photo (with the cute shape). Either way, I'll keep you all posted with photos of the projects in my home!

  8. beautiful! as said, I also like the Etsy supplier fabric better, it seem more fresh and modern, the other one is sort of old looking.

  11. I prefer the new fabric too. LOVE the 'old' pillow/cushions.. Can I ask where you got them from? I have been chasing those exact colours for months! Any chance you are looking to resell them?

  12. MANDIEGIRL & LANNI:
    Hmmmm AS of right now, I don't know if i will be selling them.
    But i may be selling a few things since I've purchased so many new items for my home, I have no room for the stuff that was there before. Will post on my blog if i do. :)

  13. P.S. I got the cushions on the bed from West Elm about 2 years ago. They were stored away and I took them out once or twice to photograph the room...they are really pretty!

  14. What an amazing find that material is! Etsy is like Christmas all year! Definitely go with the Etsy find! I love the way the color scheme and the pattern mimic but have a more abstract look. I think it is going to look luscious! I cannot wait to see the finished headboard!
