Isn't it amazing......

........how different color combos can completely change the look of a pattern?! I have seen it 1,000 times over, and I still get amazed every time! I was in Joannes Fabrics the other day and spotted this super fun print.


Love the bold colors, the big swirls and the reference it gives to a Suzani textile with those flower medallions. I took a shot of my hand next to it to show the scale of the print.


A big, bold, fun, graphic print, no?

Now here is the same print in a different color way.



It's suddenly softer, romantic, and less ethnic looking. I am hard pressed to say which one I like better! I can see using both of them, albeit in completely different scenarios. Guess them textile designers really know what they're doing! How have you seen color change a print or object? Share your thoughts! As always, thanks for visiting today. See you next time.....

Hi Delia! (A lovely name!) The fabric is from the Waverly Modern Essentials line at Joann fabrics. It is called 'Pom Pom Play" and is available in several colorways. The two I show here are 'Confetti' (the brighter one) and 'Spa' (the muted one) Hope that helps! What are you going to do with it if you can find it? It is such a gorgeous print....good luck!
