Famous Fabric

Last night,  Judd and I caught the tail end of HGTV’s Design Star.  This week’s challenge was to design a glass house.  All three contestants did a great job.  I was especially taken with designer Emily Henderson’s room which was inspired by her blue and white outfit.

As the camera panned to her space I immediately exclaimed to Judd, “that’s my pillow fabric on the wall”!!! Now, of course, it is not my pillow fabric. I just used it for some pillows that I made for our family’s Auburn house.  I found it at United Textiles in Bessemer, AL on sale several months ago.  I have no idea who actually designed and made the fabric.  I’m just a pretend designer you see.  :)

Ironically, my sister-in-law, Brenna, recently posted a picture of one of my pillows on her blog.  Ok, the picture she posted is actually of her cute niece, Aly.  But, see my little pillow in the background??? She and her family stayed at the Auburn house last weekend to attend a wedding.

As stated in my side bar, I am not a designer and in no way do I claim to be.  I just like pretty things and enjoy putting them together.  Most of the time I have big ideas in my head and no budget to actually make them happen.  Needless to say, I was tickled to see my fabric selection on the small screen.

  1. I think that is so funny! I think it's even funnier that I happened to have taken a picture with it in the background. Glad you could use it as proof!

    I looked at those pillows all weekend and loved how nice they looked in the room. They are perfect for that couch =)
