If you think choosing a fabric for a project is difficult, try finding a matching solid for lining and facing.
For our upcoming Greenwich, CT project we have two window treatments. Both designs include a colored facing for part of the treatment. The fabric above, from Charlotte Moss, was easy. The client wanted something silky and this faux silk in a rich gold color from Maxwell Fabrics was perfect.
And then we went in search of blue.
You may remember this powder room, also located in Connecticut, that we showed a while back:
The Dana Gibson wallpaper had the most delicious, vibrant shade of blue that turned out to be a challenge to match for banding on a white Roman shade we were making for the window. We ended up using a Dana Gibson trim, because there was no solid blue to be found!
Now we call this particular shade Connecticut Blue, because it is the exact same blue as before.
We are not ones to give up easily!
We found a beautiful cotton sateen that will work perfectly!
