Happy To Sad And Back To Happy Again

Phew...exhausted yet? I went through a range of emotions yesterday. It wasn't the end of the world, but I got really bummed when Dave and I made the trek out to Calico Corners and I found the Vienna Flower fabric. It was too beige, too muted, and too boring. Sad face for sure.

I thought maybe my computer screen had led me astray and almost gave up on finding the fabric, as I thought it only came in two colorways.

When we returned home I couldn't get over how the differences were so strong and went back to researching the fabric. The magazine's colorway was so vibrant and had indigos and purples and the Calico Corner version did not.

I came upon this site and copied and pasted the fabric info and it took me to the actual site where the designer ordered the fabric used in the room.

Turns out, my eyes weren't fooling me and neither was my screen. I about jumped up and down for finding it! You can bet that I was convinced I needed it. When you can't get something out of your mind you just know, yaknow? ; )

Plus, I became absolutely entranced in this video of the behind the scenes makeover story. I am in LOVE with it all. I feel like that master bedroom + bathroom is pretty near perfection. Designer Cameron MacNeil hit this one out of the park!!

And, I would just like to say that House and Home knows how to inspire and keep readers interested! Their magazine is beyond fabulous and their website is even more helpful. I am smitten.

I came upon that room redo at another site too, while catching up on my blog reader today. Love the idea of framing fabric. Until now, I've really only seen fabric stretched across a canvas, but I like the framing idea better.
