I'm Dreaming of... Fabric

One of my favorite blogs, Young House Love, made a post about a fantastic online fabric store, aptly named Online Fabric Store (seriously, check out their post -- they're hosting a $250 giveaway!). Their timing couldn't be better, I've been day-dreaming about sewing projects to do around the apartment. I put together some mood boards to marinate over. I feel like we already have a lot of structured, geometric shapes throughout our apartment, so I tried to focus on more organic shapes.

I know that I'd like to make a fabric covered headboard. Our bed nestles against our blue curtains and there's lots of blue and green throughout the room. We also have an Irish flag and a few other pops of oranges and reds throughout the room. I picked fabrics for this that emphasizes the warm colors while complimenting the blues and greens. I love the two on the right of this board. I thought the right was my favorite, but now the second to right is singing my song -- good thing, Keith does not like the one on the right. Does anyone else sometimes struggle to meet everyone's aesthetics when decorating?

There's two sewing projects in our living room/main room: small table cloths for our coffee tables and cushions for our chairs. I LOVE the outside prints, but I'm worried that they might compete with each other. I might go with the more subtle red print for the cushions.

What do you guys think? Any sewing projects in your future?
