Back to the Drawing Board.
I still have the original kitchen curtains hanging, for 2 years now I could not pick a colour I wanted to go with, finally I made a decision. The next ordeal was to actually find the right colour mix, I have been everywhere, called fabric stores, called fabric outlets, nothing. I went to a sewing store this morning with the hopes of finding the right colour match as the outlet said they deliver a lot of batiks there. Not so much! I ended up purchasing the end of a bolt of material on sale, it wasn't exactly what I was looking for but it did include the colour of my tiles. I was skeptical, and when you feel that way, you should just walk away, got the material home and it looks ghastly. It is waaaay too dark and not the colour I wanted, so I called the store. I did not think they would let me return the fabric but as luck would have it, they did make an exception for me as I had purchased the bolt end. Lucky me, sometimes you catch a break.
Now I'll be on the hunt once again, I should check the bedding, sometimes they have awesome colour patterns, I could just buy a couple flat sheets and go to it!! Probably would be much more cost effective as well, Oh well, back to the drawing board!!
