I’m all over updating our bedroom, hence the curtain update. However, I’m not in the mood to repaint the room. I like the color we have, it’s a neutral with a pink undertone (as pink as I think The Mister will let me go) so I need to match it to something. Our current headboard matches it as did our previous curtains. In fact, they were perfect matches. That’s why I’m not counting those pieces as goners. I just want something fresh.
Pillows are the quickest way to make things match up or “blend.” Of course, I’m thinking of fabric I’ve lusted over and here are my options for you to weigh in on.
1. Chiang Mai – This fabric is crazy expensive and has been insanely popular for a few years. It has a cult like following. I’ve always coveted it for curtains but have refused to pay for the yardage. I’m just not comfortable spending $1,500+ on curtains. If that’s not something you’re concerned about then we should talk. However, I was thinking I’d buy a set of pillows. The set is still not cheap.
2. Sunara – Once again, not cheap and from F. Schumacher. I could buy three of these for the price of the set above. I don’t need three. I’m just letting you know for your benefit and price comparison. I feel like if i looked hard/long enough I could find a knock off of it. Have you seen anything?
Additionally, I can buy a yard of either fabric the price of the pillows. The one yard of Chiang Mai is ~$30 cheaper than the made set. The one yard of Sunara is the cost of one made pillow. Will my pillows be as nice as their pillows? Absolutely not.
I know which way I’m leaing, but let’s take a vote on which pattern you like the most.
I’d say we need to keep this quiet but The Mister has been busy and hasn’t been keeping up to date here. (Insert side eye)
