Gettin' Ziggy Wit It

Na na na na na na na...

Is that a terrible blog post title? Sorry. And I'm probably not the first to think of it, but I couldn't pass up the chance to invoke Will Smith whilst speaking of zig zags.

I love a good zig zag, although I have not used any zig zag prints in my home. I am very fond of geometrics for fabric, but zig zags are definitely a statement pattern. I find my dear stripes are classic and safe, whereas a zig zag pushes the envelope a bit more.

But, my thoughts are consumed by our bedroom at the moment as I'm trying to put all the pieces together - and my main enemy is time. It's been painted for what seems like eons...I just have to get my sewing machine out and make the fabric accessories that will help finish it up.

So, back to the zigs - I came across a print that I think might work..and our bedroom has a much more traditional feel than the rest of the house, so it might be a good place to inject a little 'tude.

Recall that my inspiration fabric whose color scheme dictates the room is this Schumacher print:

And I'm trying to pull out the smoky blue color on the ducks in touches such as our lamps...and I think this Premier Fabrics zig zag might do the trick as the seat cover for my vanity chair...

The colorway is gorgeous and subtle and it lets me use just a whisper of a zig in the room. Many other colorways are available here.

Now if I could just find some time to actual follow through! Hopefully I'll have "after" pictures of our bedroom sooner rather than later.


  1. That combination looks great! I can't wait to see it in the room.

  2. I love that you chose to bring out the slate blue -- it's perfect!

    And why oh why does that fabric not come in navy and white?!?!?!

  3. What a great resource! I'm dying over their prices too.
    Love the zigzag.

  4. But at my back I always hear, Time's winged chariot hurrying near. Good luck. Can't wait to see it.

  5. Perfect combo! I'm still not over chevron, perhaps because I've yet to get my "fix" of it!
