Fabric-adabra Crush! (Manuel Canovas Misia)

I've been fairly in love with a designer fabric for about a year...

In case you haven't seen it before, meet Misia, by Manuel Canovas.

 Here she is, used as the most adorable laundry room skirt.

I first spotted it in the blog header of Bijou and Boheme... I emailed Christine (the writer) and she was very gracious to share the name of the fabric. She found a remnant on eBay if memory serves, and had it made into a pillow.

But I couldn't find it anywhere! It's typically only available to the trade. BOO! And it's from overseas, making it more difficult to locate.

Here's another glimpse at the (pricey but beautiful) possibilities...

I finally found a source, and bought it online! The plan is to frame it as wall art. I love how well it plays with so many other colors, and is elegant but modern and vibrant all at the same time.

I will share the results soon.

Until then, I will Misia you. ;)

    1. Hi Morgan and Niccole! I found it at french-brand.com :) I hope this helps!

      Niccole, you will see soon! Unfortunately in the move I lost my camera card showing how it turned out in our condo, but I found a great place for it in our new house! You shall see soon. :)

  4. Not all are true. Everyone has their own way of thinking but I think they have to reconsider. I like to argue for the most accurate results
