Dreaming of Dunloe

I l-o-v-e this fabric.

Dunloe by Osborne &'s magnificent. Where has it been all my life, and how come I didn't know about it until now??

Now, I know I tend to like many, many fabrics and blog about them, but it's not often that I find a fabric that I just plain obsess over. I am adding this one to that category. I am completely smitten with the color scheme of lavender, green/chartreuse, brown and's perfect for my dining room which currently has all said colors on display.

I have been struggling with what fabric to use on my set of black armchairs and this weekend, I was perusing The Designer's Attic, where blogger and designer Shannon sells her fabric stash, and I spotted 3 yards of this glorious textile...I was in heaven!...until I realized they were sold. Oh, it was a very, very sad moment. I had the perfect fabric in my midst, for a great price, but some other savvy ladies beat me to it.

All's fair in love and fabric.

So now I am left dreaming of Dunloe...perhaps I'll be lucky enough to come across it again. Or, I'll get so cuckoo over having it that I'll pay full price {gasp}...we'll see.

Check out her many colorways and dream with me:


  1. I think it is fantastic that people can look at fabric and see where it is going to go in the greater scheme of things. I am more of the plain no print type of goes with everything fabrics. Can't wait to see more of what you end up doing with all of your little collection. :)

  2. Lovely! And I love Shannon's venture -- I actually bought my floor lamp off Designer's Attic and I love it! I'm always stalking her offerings trying to find another great deal....

  3. Hi Daniella,
    I hope you are still happy I stopped by when I tell you this....Shannon is sending some this fab fabric my way!

  4. Oh, Acorn...I'll try not to be an ugly, jealous creature...I'm sure it will be gorgeous!! Sniff, sniff.

  5. i wish i had more so i could let you have some!!! thanks for mentioning my blog :)
