Fabric Crush: Schumacher

Inspired by this image, I'm all about the idea of an end of bed bench. I actually thought this fabric was exactly what I wanted, so I hunted it down (Dzhambul Suzani from Brunschwig et Fils for the curious). I got samples of four different colorways, and decided that no, in fact, it wasn’t for me. I am not willing to let the idea of a brightly patterned end of bed bench go, though. So, I soldier on! The “master” bedroom in our house is less than…well…masterful, so I’m working on pulling together a plan to take it to the next level. Well, let’s be honest, I just need to take it to some level. Because my bed is on the floor, people. (I’ve blogged about my love affair with the Lewis Headboard, so don’t worry, I’m working on a remedy).

But now, back to the bench. I’ve become obsessed with…er…picked out four fabrics from F. Schumacher & Co. that I think would make a beautiful, spectacular and glorious addition to my end of bed bench. So without further ado, I give you the samples:

That is, from the top left: the venerable Chiang Mai Dragon in Aquamarine, Cambourne in Honey, Chinois Fret in Almond/Noir and Chinois Fret in Gold/Cinnabar. (The last two are meant to appease my well-meaning but non-floral-loving husband, Mr. J).

So what’s the word? Which of these do you think I should I choose? Or should I keep on looking??

P. to the S. Notice the rug?? Stripes!!! So. Hot. Right. Now.
