Basement Fabric Considerations

Over the extended Canada Day weekend, I took a bit of a break to spend some time with family and friends. It has been quite a few years since I’ve camped in a tent, but I have to admit it was better than I remembered. It was really nice to get away and not think about trim work, paint, tile, lighting and flooring (can you tell I’m ready for our basement renovation to be over!). We’re nearing the end and I’m happy to report that the Sarah Richardson paint colors I selected are looking gorgeous, and I’ll be posting photos soon.

All of the finishes have been selected and ordered (except for the snack bar tile), so I’m focusing my attention on the decorative materials, such as fabric and furniture. I have always been drawn to fabric and usually like it to be the jumping off point for decorating any room. Below are some of the patterns I’m considering. Not only do I like the look of these fabrics, but most are cotton and/or linen and the hand is beautiful. (Note: the colors are quite a bit different than what appears on your screen.)

I’m still looking for one large-scale patterned fabric to set the tone for the room. I’m considering the above fabrics for pillows, window treatments and smaller upholstered pieces, such as a chair, bench or stool.

Are there any fabrics that stand out to you?

Enjoy your day!


  1. All of these choices are really great, and I think XU Garden is my favorite… I’m really looking forward to your reveal!

  2. Oh my! I love all of them but the one stands out the most for me is probably “Pelagos”. You really can’t go wrong with either one though.

  3. Oh.. great choices!  I am loving Xu Garden and Esquire!  Can’t wait to see the final decision!
