When I saw these fabrics I immediately thought about a client of mine who is pregnant. She actually does not know what she is having yet but I think she is having a girl. I never have these premonitions, but every time I see something that makes me think of a girl's room I think of her. While I don't think she would ever go to the "dark side" or for that matter anything near this funky, I think used correctly these could be so cute.
This fabric I saw in Ikea and I thought it was on clearance for $.99-yes 99 cents, but I was wrong. I was going to buy it all and just keep it around for the right person. Well, it was something like $8.99/yd, which is still a GREAT deal, but I didn't want to buy a random amount for "one day".
With either of these fabrics I would pull out some of the colors in the fabric for the walls and the rest of the room, maybe even a pink. I wouldn't do black on black for a child, but how cute is this wall?
Not that I think this is necessarily childlike. I would use it in an "adult" room too as long as it fit with the owner. I took this at a showroom in Atlanta, in complete stealth mode knowing that I would put this in my idea file to use sometime down the road. I will let you know when I find the right spot.
