We are LOVING the new Home Decor Weight Sateens, Bekko by Trenna Travis for Michael Miller!! We got to see these fabrics ar Market this past Fall and thought they were just too perfect for words for house and home and we hope they excite you for your decor plans this season!! Classic and modern lines in everyone's favorite preppy hues make this collection perfect for recovering those old sofa cushions, creating fresh new drapes for the living room, giving your bedroom a modern makeover or even for making classic, well-wearing tote bags!!
If you have a plain and neutral couch then we think you need to LIVEN that baby up for Spring & Summer 2013!! Grab a few of these prints in a few colors and spend an afternoon with girlfriends sewing some simple pillow covers for your homes!! Given the heavier weight of these fabulous Sateens, they will withstand even the craziest of households! Dogs, kiddos, husbands...you need not fear with Bekko making up your home decor! Removable covers can go straight into the washing machine to make them look as good as new!! Try making a fancy statement piece like the Gum Drop Pillow to really punch up a room!! Caroline is teaching the Gum Drop Class again on February 28th from 5:30-9:00pm!
How about making some super simple and great looking curtains with one or two of these prints? I love the look of these DIY Curtains I found on the Vanilla Joy Blog, they seriously can be the perfect answer to your window covering problems for kids rooms, the living room, new apartments, dorms or wherever you need something colorful, graphic and totally chic! These prints in these colors are just too versatile!!
