Fresh & Affordable Fabrics


I often get inquiries from people interested in designer fabric pricing, which typically ranges from $60 per yard all the way up to $175 per yard. Most people are a little surprised at the high pricing and opt to search for something more affordable. Although I have wholesale accounts with many of the top fabric manufacturers, I am constantly searching for great fabric deals to share with my clients and for myself! A few sites I visit from time to time are Heather Bailey Store, Calico Corners and Fabric.com. I've pulled together some of my favorites to share with you. Introducing new fabric into a space is an easy way to update and refresh your look - add new accent pillows, re-cover dining chair seats, hang bold-patterned drapery panels, add some color to your kitchen table with a vintage inspired tablecloth...the list goes on and on!

  4. That last green damask, I'm looking for in a pink, to do my own version of a magnet board I saw at Horchow. I found a fabric place online yesterday where it was $15.00 a yard and I only need 1 yard. I'll probably keep looking, but at least I know of one source.

    Love the drapes in that first picture!

  6. fabric is like paint, offering a nice fresh facelift to spaces. and without breaking the bank. i really like the fabrics that you featured from fabric.com. the nouveau boutique teal with those birds. super fun and fresh. fabric designers really have evolved and modernized and become a bit more edgy and fun. i love that. :)
