I absolutely adore butterfly patterns, and the mix of colors is irresistible in this fabric. Perfect for a tween or teen, as it can go soft and sweet or a bit more glam.
This Jungle Jubilee fabric is a recent find and a definite new favorite. I love the illustrative quality of the animals, and I think it's perfection for a sweet nursery.
How can you not love a fabric called Macaroni? It comes in divine colors and is the perfect small-scale pattern for a nursery or young child's bedroom. I think it coordinates perfectly with the previous Jungle Jubilee fabric too.
Sarah Jane is such a talented artist who creates the most whimsical fabrics that capture the essence of childhood. I love the sweet details in this one. Her fabrics usually come in quilt weight, so they are better for smaller projects or maybe curtains, but not so much for something like upholstery.
So, I had a laugh as I was putting together this ideabook and inadvertently saved so many similar fabrics — I obviously have a thing for multicolor elephants! Although I tend to stay away from themes, I do like the idea of circus elements in a children's space, and this particular fabric from John Robshaw is just so gorgeous. It looks like a little artist just took out a box of crayons and went to town. I love it — even for grown-ups.
Balloons! This is so stinkin' cute, and the pinks mixed with aqua create such a fresh color palette.
This print is so subtle, but once you look closely, you see a fun circus come to life! I love how the monochromatic blue tones keep an otherwise busy pattern soft and subdued.
Pink and green is a pretty, traditional and preppy color combination. I love the sweetness of this print with its green butterflies. It would be great for a girly girl.
Have you ever checked Ikea for fabrics? They have some great options that lean contemporary, and this swirly floral chock-full of friendly bugs is adorable. It would work especially well in a crafty kids' space.
Textured fabric is a great way to bring some whimsy to a youthful space, and I think this color palette is very gender neutral.
This is the sweetest color palette for a nursery: pastel pink and aqua. The colors look wonderful with traditional dark wood furnishings.
If you follow me, you know that chinoiserie is my jam — and this green and white silhouette print is so very pretty. I would love to use it in a tightly edited room awash in tones of this wasabi green with various textures in white.
This fabric has always been on my short list for a nursery. The animals are so playful, and I love the movement.
