Now that our living room is painted, I can start thinking about other additions to make the main floor and living rooms cozy for fall and winter.

I love navy. It’s sharp, crisp,and classic without being too dull. Navy works well with our grey living room walls without clashing with the colors of other nearby rooms. Also, when my mom came to visit recently, she brought some “leftover” fabric. Leftover, my eyeballs. It’s beautiful navy and white fabric patterned in lovely scrolls and fleur-de-lis designs that provided me with some initial inspiration. It was like a sign.

One of my favorite places to visit for color and design inspiration is Fabric.com. The sheer overwhelming number of patterns and design is stunning. (Isn’t #3 drop-dead gorgeous?) I also love visiting various Etsy shops.

I’m also totally inspired by all of these lovely fabrics and patterns, some of which have already been turned into pillows by designers. I hope you are too! Which one is your favorite?

Oh, and that green dandelion pattern? I totally love it. I don’t even care if it’s not navy. That fabric is going to find a way into my life.
