What do you have in your bedroom

This fabric is Fiori Damask by Alessandra Marchesini. Robin saw it and fell in love. She was supposed to be looking for chair fabric and found her self side tracked. She was thinking about her bed room and I was thinking that I really didn't want to match up a printed fabric. As you can see below I had to do it any way

So apparently there is a Fiori Stripe Fabric that complements the scroll fabric. Apparently a reversible duvet became a new good idea.

This is my first duvet set. We did not factor in the 2 pillow shams. They are made from the leftover fabric scraps. You cant tell as much from the front as you can from the back. And that's why I left that picture unseen. I'm glad that I was able to squeeze them in.

This is my guest room not the new home for the set. Robin has a more traditional/formal style than I do. (had to test that it would actually fit a queen bed) I think it looks nice with the grey walls not so much with my second had decor.....

But it is giving me ideas for new plans as soon as I finish the next 2 jobs in the Que!


  1. Hi there! I came across your blog when googling Alessandra Marchesini's Fiori damask fabric, which I had just seen on Hancockfabrics.com. It looks beautiful and you did a wonderful job with your duvet cover! I was thinking about using it for a roman blind and was wondering what the exact colours are - is it a light grey and dark taupe, or is the brown more chocolatey (sorry for the lack of technical words in this comment - ha ha!)

  2. Hi Sanj,
    Thanks, Im glad that you liked it. The colors are more grey. One is dark the color of an old quarter and the other is a light silvery/blue grey. I think the yellow light of the lamp is giving it the taupe color. BTW, I love your technical words, they work for me ;-)
