Shopping for fabric online
I have a project that I'm dying to finish up and for the life of me I can't find "the perfect" fabric for the LAST piece of my project! After tons of shopping around and not finding exactly what I wanted, I called on one of my favorite go-to interior designers, Kirsten Krason from 6th Street Design School for help.
I'm sure that a lot of your already follow Kirsten, but if not, then you MUST. She is like the the fabric mixing queen! She's always putting tons of color, texture and prints in her spaces... but seems to make it all flow perfectly in the end. I envy her eye for design.
(I guess you get those mad-skills when you actually GO to interior design school. ha!)
Check out her amazing home... doesn't it just make you happy? :)
After an SOS to Kirsten via email, about not being able to find my perfect fabric, she pulled a bunch of swatches for me and gave me some GREAT resources for fabric stores that I hadn't even heard of!
After talking to Kirsten some more she pointed me in the direction of Spoonflower. A site where you can not only buy fabulous fabric, but make your OWN as well! whoo hoo! Isn't that awesome? I'm not totally sure of the steps yet, that you have to take to actually design and print your own designs, but I'm sure it's pretty easy!
Anywhoo, I wanted to share with everyone Kirsten's fab interior design skills and Spoonflower's fabric-awesomeness, just as a little tip-of-the-day!
Some of these fabrics are just available to the trade, so they're a little trickier to get your hands on, unless you go through Kirsten. Others are from Spoonflower, Calico Corners and Premier Prints Fabric!
Have fun browsing!
