Designing Your Own Fabric.

I started working on our living room/dining room project long before the days of Spoonflower.  I was so annoyed during this process,  because I knew what I wanted, but I just couldn’t find it…  ANYWHERE.  So, I scoured the earth for the perfect yellow linen and worked with my go-to-artist, Corinne Marlowe to create a stencil that would provide the exact look that I was going for.  Not as cost-effective as buying something off the shelf, but to me, it was worth every penny.  I just love the way the metallic gold paint dresses up the linen.  It takes this space to a whole new level.
Here is the stencil that we created.
Corinne hand-stenciled the fabric.
And I had the panels made… And voila!  Here they are in the living room…
and dining room…

    Your drapes are beautiful! Do you mind sharing your window hardware source. I’ve had such a hard time finding window hardware for my dining room that my drapes are sitting by finished and waiting for a year! :)

    Those drapes are perfect. I would have never thought of stenciling the fabric. Now I’m thinking of where I could use this.
    Also, I love the prints above your barcart. They look perfect against the dark paint.
