I’ve literally been scheming for weeks! Fabric scheming that is!! It’s my favourite part of my work, I almost always begin a project by pulling together a strong fabric scheme from which to build out everything else. My love of fabric is deep and I could literally spend hours in my favourite fabric stores touching and feeling each and every option. Fabric is such a tactile experience, it’s best experienced in person and not online. My secret horde of fabric in my attic is proof of my slightly concerning obsession with fabric. I’ll buy a yard or two of any and all that I fall in love with for some future project that may or may not ever materialize. Some women horde shoes, I horde fabric (ok, well maybe shoes too but that’s another story).

Fabric scheming speaks to my intense love of pattern and colour and achieving that perfect mix of both in a space. I thought I’d share a few that I’ve been working on lately!

Am IN LOVE with older sisters bedroom fabric scheme over at #projectconnecticut


Little sister’s bedroom fabric plan is still in the works, but I’m loving this soft grey and pink combo. #projectconnecticut


Brother’s bedroom at #projectconnecticut is a classic combination but a fabulous one!

    I feel the same way!! I don’t have a fabric stash, but I know what I love when I see it and could (and have!) spent hours in fabric stores when working on a project. I love your schemes above.

    Wonderful fabric schemes! Do you do wall paper scheming Cindy? I find it quite challenging as one has to go over miles and miles of samples……

If you're heading away this weekend I hope you get to stay in a guest room like this one overlooking the water and completely secluded from the main house. So serene and relaxing. #projectgeorgianbay It only took me two years to finally decide what fabric to use for romans blinds in my kitchen. It was worth the wait! This @ferrickmason fabric from @memo_showroom is everything I hoped it would be. Fabulous fabricating by @tonicliving as always! I'm loving how my late Grandmothers chair is fitting into this corner of my family room now that she's been revived by @restylestudioto Not only is it adding extra seating but also a home for my new favourite @tonicliving pillow!! #crazypillowlady Three cheers for sunny, slow, relaxing Sunday mornings. ☕️☀️
