Pretty fabric swatches

Not sure what i might do with these fabric swatches, perhaps just admire their beauty for the moment. I am looking to change our bedroom, i just can't seem to make my mind up. 

I adore the lovely detail and quality. You can see the beautiful threads in some of these photographs. 

Any suggestions?? Kellie xx

  2. What a lovely muted red in that stripe. I love the way it looks against the florals. And the black and cream fabric will be such a great graphic contrast. So inspiring!

  8. These are lovely!
    I like the black and white flower A LOT. And also the blue and white stripes. In fact, I like them all!
    If you want to make something out of the swatches you could make something like this:

    And hang it in your home.

    The blue and white would make a lovely chair cover and they could ALL make lovely cushions. Especially the butterfly/ flowers/ black and white flower.

    Where are they from?

  14. These almost wouldn't be too busy all in the same room with the right use of them as both accent fabrics and main design elements. Love it.

  16. pillows they must become! you can also send them this way so i make pillows out of them :)

  17. What to do...what to do?? Hummm. Well if you can't redo your entire room then small punches of new fabric as pillows or simple slipcovers will work. They all are sooo pretty!

  26. Loving the butterfly fabric it would make a great bed cover and the pink striped ticking edging all around the bottom, you could then do matching pillow slips butterfly fabric then plain beige then pink ticking at edge. Oh I can see it in my head.
    Enjoy what ever you deside!!
