So, I said goodbye to the fabric I had originally chosen as the victor the to two week fabric decision. I chose a similar fabric, floral with like colors. The print is smaller scale than the large floral of the Duralee Dahlia Aegean.
I think I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m cheap.
The 8.50/yard VS 25+/yard really swayed my decision.
The colors are similar but obviously not the same! Personally, I don’t think it will change anything as far as styling the room. It still makes me feel warm and cottage-y!
I was also able to score a 1/2 yard of Tye Pennington’s chartreuse lace for an accent pillow and 1 yard of Joel Dewberry Opal in Jade for a cafe curtain in the kitchen!
If I like the Joel Dewberry enough I’m going to order more and make accent panels for the living room curtains. Nothing big just something to add a pop of color + fun!
I won’t lie .. I’m bummed about the Dahlia Aegean. But, our wallet is happy.. very happy.
Made any penny pinching compromises lately? Do tell!
