DBRB Symptoms Arising...

I'm feelin' it again...symptoms of Design Blog-Reader's Blues have been a 'creepin into my brain as I work on Avery's room redo...

I did settle on a bedding ensemble for her room - the Callie set from PBKids
The pattern is discontinued - but I lucked out and found a complete (well, minus a skirt) set on Ebay - sweet price, too!
Remember, I'm planning to paint the bed a deep midnight blue to temper all the hot pink..
...But, I can't leave well enough alone - and am not sure I want the bulk of the pattern in the room to be on the duvet - I was imaging more of a white coverlet/duvet with pink edging, and then patterned skirt/shams look. I'm still brainstorming on how to use this set to create such a look.

When I was tossing around ideas of other patterns, I spied some uh-ma-zing fabrics on the Quadrille/South Seas website. I emailed the oh-so-sweet-and-talented Marianne of Haven and Home to see if she could help me out with some swatches. (The fabrics are to-the-trade, and I knew Marianne was at Market that week) - she kindly obliged, but gave me fair disclaimer - These fabrics are C.R. AZY expensive (at least for this blogstress - and most sane people)

...That's when the DBRB symptoms arose...inspiration, followed by sadness, ending with disdain for high-end fabric manufacturers - I mean, really WHY do they have to be so freakin' expensive? Here's some of the patterns I'm having conniptions over...
Yes, this is for Avery's room - I did her nursery in soft-candy pink, so I'm going for more of an elegant-little-diva bedroom look this go round. Do I even have a prayer for a throw pillow or two out of this stuff - Prob' not...

But what I CAN have is Round Two of The Cure for DBRB!!! The requests to the MLHP designer panel have been sent, so I'll be compiling all the yummy, insider scoop pics soon. I know you can't wait!!! Stay tuned...
