Does your home ever look like this?
Yes, this is what it looks like when you are Living with Lindsay. My DH is annoyed. In fact, his folks are on their way to our house from the airport right this very minute, and I’m not taking this crazy mess down.
I’m actually testing a couple of fabrics for the window treatments in my bedroom. There will be a toile valence across the top of the window with some fringe or trim (I’m hoping navy tassels, but I haven’t found them yet). On the windows, I’m going to hang a black iron bar across the top and make panels to hang on rings. The panels will be 2/3 of a top color and then 1/3 of the denim that I used as an accent on my bed and pillows. The red pillow in the picture is an accent color. See, I told you that the red and blue were going to come together! You people need to trust me more.
The question is: Should I choose the green or the blue for the primary fabric?
What? You think they look exactly the same? Here’s a close-up:
Still see no difference? You are either color blind like my DH (really! he really is! and then tries to give me decorating advice! as if!), or I’m just insane to be worrying so much about this slight difference in hue.
Let’s try this again. Here’s the green:
And here’s the blue (it’s slightly darker than this photo represents):
I think I like the color of the green the best, but the green: a) is about twice the cost of the blue and I need a LOT of yardage for as many windows as I’m dressing, and b) was a remnant I found in the fabric store and I don’t know if they have more or can order more. Thus, I think I’m leaning towards the blue.
What do you think? Please tell me, Dear Internets. Is it really that much of a difference?
