Which curtain fabric do you like the best?

Help! Iím at the fabric store trying to buy fabric to make new curtains for my Boler. The store is 3 hours from my house so I need to make a decision and buy it now, thereís no coming back.

The rest of the interior is solid colour (dark grey cushions, wood countertop&floor so I thought I could add some colour, but is the comic one too much? We are hoping to rent it out to help with some of the expense so it needs to appeal to everyone.

The colour of the dot one is what Iím planning to paint the exterior so maybe it makes the most sense (but least fun)

What do you think?

None of the above would be a choice I would make for myself.

I don't want my trailer to look like a kids room or a bedroom.

I want a gender neutral space where even my male visitors who drop in for a cup of coffee or glass of wine will feel comfortable.

It is a very small space, to keep it feeling expansive you don't want something that will drive you or anyone else up the wall after a short while.

The first choice looks like a kids bed spread or sheets,
the second choice is OK but it looks a lot like bed sheets
the third choice also looks like bed sheets

You need to make up your mind, do you want your trailer to feel like a bedroom or do you want it to feel like a living room?


I will be living in mine full time. I want it to function as a living room so that adult visitors of all genders would not feel it was too cutesy or feel like they are having coffee or a meal while sitting in a woman's bedroom.

One of the main reasons I got married was so that I didn’t have to make these tough decisions . Since my strategy has worked well for 49 years
“ They all look wonderful so whatever you decide is OK with me ! “

If it was up to me , everything would be done in Realtree Camo

I have to agree with Steve....not one of my designer choices have ever met with a thumbs up from my wife. I measure, she buys, I install, she picks the color, I paint :. Pick whatever fabric floats your boat, curtains and such are an easy fix if you get tired of it.

Thank you for the reply, this is what I really needed because I am definitely drawn to fabrics that are too cutesy and I do want everyone to feel comfortable.

Itís true curtains are an easy fix! Iíll see if this works and if not itís a good excuse for a day trip to the fabric store!

Curtains

A word to the wise, from someone who took too long to wise up: Make sure the material can not be seen through at night when the inside lights are on! A whole summer of traveling in my Scamp, taking long sponge baths, with the see-through curtains that my Scamp came with. And nobody told me! I must have provided fine entertainment for my fellow campers.

Thank you, Liz

Curtains and privacy...i made the same mistake, misunderstanding what could be seen at night with the lights on. And like you, no one clued me in.
