Stash Fabrics Design Star Finalist: Round 2

I'm still in awe that my curated bundle was chosen by Beth of Stash Fabrics in the initial round of competition for 2017 Stash Fabrics Design Star.  Stash Fabrics is primarily an online family owned fabric store located in Alpharetta, GA, with excellent customer service and super fast shipping.

You can see my initial curated bundle here that landed me as 1 of 12 finalists to move on to Round 2 of competition.

Round 2 ~ DECADES

For Round 2, the designers choose a decade that best suits each and curate a bundle around that decade using the interactive design wall on the Stash Fabrics website.  This is my mid-century modern bundle inspired by 1950's.


I was drawn to the colors in these mid-century modern homes found in this image.

Later, I found this was a partial cover of the September 1958 issue of Better Homes and Gardens.

I then found another inspiration, this Birds illustration by Dante Terzigni an thought it captured the colors so familiar with the mid-century modern era.
