framing a nook with fabric--scandanavian style
I want to frame the reading nook in my rv with curtain panels and a valance, and am stuck on the fabric choices mostly.
The reading nook is at the very back of the camper and is 8ft across by 3ft deep. The sides and back are almost all glass with adequate but ugly day/night privacy blinds.
My goal is to create a Scandinavian (country, woodland, rustic yet luxurious) vibe, using the camper's natural maple trim and white/off white wall paper as a jumping off place.
(Or am I thinking of the tv show, Once Upon a Time with Snow White's beautiful nursery in my head?) that is beautiful, but i don't want blues or silvers, but more earthy browns and greens and off whites.
Anyway the carpet is beige, and I intend to purchase thick comfortable rugs for it.
The entire room has a pair of deep chocolate recliners and a small maple coffee table. Only my recliner and a small table will be in the nook.
I am buying sheepskins for the recliners, to soften the look and for comfort.
As for color, for curtains i am thinking off white or maybe even green.
I'm also thinking it would be awfully luxurious to line the entire interior of the nook with off white sheers or lace panels.
(shiny or matte?) then the interior of my nook would feel pillowed in fabric, and somewhat insulated from the rest of the world.
That would also solve the daytime privacy issue and still allow plenty of natural light, which I want.
Can I do this and still somehow pull off woodland?
At the entrance of the nook on either side and as a valance I'm thinking of using deeply textured off white (or maybe green if i can find the perfect green) panels to frame it, but not too girly or beachy, you know?
This is where I get stuck on fabric texture.
Not chenille, that's too bedroomy, isn't it?
A thick cotton?
The valance is important because it will hide a cabinet which hangs from the ceiling at the rear of the nook, and while very useful is ugly.
I think maybe also a lush fringe on the panels and valance maybe with the curtain panels held back by an apple green or red ribbon.
Can anyone 'see' what I'm reaching for and help me shape this up?
