Fabric selection-What do you think?

Hancock Fabric had a 50% off sale Saturday. Selected fabric for the gaucho upholstery and for curtains. It was definitely difficult making a commitment. I promised my husband no flowers! So the leaf pattern was a compromise. Solid for the sofas and pattern for the windows. I am considering roman shades. I made them for my kitchen and love them. Anyone tried these in your A/S - pros or cons?

I like it! Fairly neutral but bold in the pattern. The only problem might be that roman shades aren't going to conform to the curve of the airstream????? I also find that they can look a little strange with large patterns as the leaves are going to get cut off in the folds. Maybe do roman shades on the windows over the sink and beds (ie flat windows) and do something different in the front and rear? The Handcock Fabrics nearby have all gone out of business I miss them...

I get what you mean about the pattern getting cut off in the folds. I may have to consider another plan.
