The throw you see here is the same one you saw on the Louis XV chair in the previous post. I've just laid it at the foot of our bed. Rumpled on purpose in such an "oh,blase" way (trying to work the french attitude!).
The other day I went to Calico Corners to take some shots of variations you could use. (By the way, they currently have taken deep discounts on some discontinued fabrics.. check it out!) Keep in mind, you need to look for upholstery fabrics that are mostly cotton, some rayon, and bit of polyester so that it wears forever.
In all of these, I have shown the front and back of the fabric. Since this will be used as a throw, the back is equally important. I've also tried to show the selvedge.. the fraying that so appeals to me for the added texture.
Now.. perhaps you've noticed that these fabrics are more colorful than what my decor shows in the beginning photo. Yes... there is a change a-brewin'. Color is calling my name and when we move again my decor will most certainly reflect that. Get prepared, honey... I'm going to need the charge card once more!!
