After months of searching for the perfect fabric to re-cover the valance in my kitchen, I finally settled with one! I don't know if I am more excited about the fabric or being done looking for one?! I decided on a Robert Allen fabric called Pyramid in Camel. In the picture above, it is the geometric one in the middle. It isn't a bold, bright print or anything. Actually pretty simple. I was looking for a more modern fabric, no print. Something that can change/ grow with me. I find that I get tired of prints quickly, always going back to stripes, herringbone, tweed ect.
Here is a close up of the fabric used for a pillow. Reminds me of a fabric Thomas O'Brien or Nate Berkus would use. The picture below is of my current valance. It is fine and in good condition, but I have had it for 5 years and am seriously tired of the print. It actually isn't "me" at all. I decided to take the plunge and just do it. I am dropping it off at the upholsterer this week, but before I do, I wanted your opinion. Do you think I should do a piping around it or same fabric for piping? My current valance used the same fabric for the piping. I was thinking it might be nice to outline the new fabric with?
