And here’s the monogrammed pillow that my mom made too…I did have the monogram done locally at a shop here. This paisley fabric is on the Euro shams too, as well as a tiny bit on top of the window panels. It was fun finding all these special little items that really pull all the fabrics together.
The blue paisley was the feature fabric for our masterbedroom when I got started with that room a little over a year ago when we moved to Birmingham. My DH loves blue, so that was the starting point for fabrics (and not just any blue…it had to be deep & rich blue), so when I saw this one at Calico Corners, I knew that was the one. My mom did all my sewing for this project (as she always so graciously does for me) and the blue/gold bedroom was born.
Imagine my surprise when I went into Homegoods last year & spotted a box with my blue paisley…yeah, I was pretty excited! Their prices are so reasonable, so I began picking them up one at a time, as I found them. The white wicker basket with the paisley liner sits on top of an iron shelf in my bathrooom & holds all my brushes & hair dryer stuff. The really cute small one sits on my vanity table & just looks so pretty. And, the larger box with the lid, I got for my DH’s dresser, since he tends to clutter it up with junk. It’s a perfect place to dump his stuff…it’s out of the way, but still there. Of course, he made fun of it a little, but I actually think he likes it too!
