Have you ever purchased something for your home with no idea of where it would end up? Yup, me too. That's the case with this bolt of silk fabric that I bought a few years ago. I purchased it with the intention of using it for curtains in my daughter's bedroom but 3 bedrooms and 3 cities later I'm still dragging it around.
As I was scouring my fabric books looking for the perfect fabric to make some curtains for our master bedroom I realized that this perfectly good fabric needs to be put to use. Not necessarily a colour I would have chosen for our bedroom I am now taking this as a challenge and am determined to make it work. Not only make it work but make it fabulous.
Here's how to incorporate something you don't love and turn the room into a space you really do love.
In this case I need a fabric with lots of colour and pattern for a duvet cover. The fabric should include the colour of the fabric you're starting with.
It's important to repeat not only colour but patterns. In my case I'll add one of these fabric trims to the curtain fabric.
Now that I have a plan I'm actually quite excited about using the silk. See how easy it is to use what you've got and make it work.
