While in NYC visiting my younger daughter I couldnt resist buying this wonderful embroidered taffeta. We shopped on Jamaica avenue in Queens - what a selection, and the prices were wonderful.
I think it matches the curtains so well, and the green will brighten it up a bit. I intend to make a bedskirt with the green - lightly gathered rather than pleats. The duvet cover will hang down about halfway down the side.
Now the question - do I have a seam up the middle and make
1. the entire duvet out of the burgundy, maybe
2. with a green outline, or have a
3. stripe of the green going down the middle?
I would really appreciate your comments and suggestions.
as you can see from the first photo - we can see out to the garden, and I have those lovely sheers with a foresty feel - I want the room to look as though you are already in the garden, so think this fabric suits that idea perfectly. What do you think?
