    Fabric and Flowers – Peonies

    By Marie Mouradian, June 20, 2014

    Is it just me or are we having a peony explosion? Gorgeous photos of peonies show up on social media and in my blog feed daily.

    These are some of my faves for you to check out – The Pink Pagoda,  A Design Snack and Fresh American

    Ranging in color from pure white to deep magenta, each variety is a natural study in color.

    Aside from taking a photo, how can we add this beauty to our homes to enjoy the entire year? With fabric of course!

    White Peonies

    This peonies pure white petals graduate to a citrine yellow towards the center where the stamen is a luscious pink.  Fabricut Agron Floral in color Blossom is a stunning embroidered linen/cotton that mimics the colors of the peony.  I would love to use this for drapery panels, a coverlet or pillows.

    Peony Pink

    It is no secret that I LOVE pink!  Hello, have you noticed the graphic I’ve created for my blog background?  For Valentine’s Day, I wrote about my love of pink, check it out here.

    This photo stopped me in my tracks while scrolling my facebook feed.  My friend Lisa, who has a keen eye for design, took this photo. She graciously gave me permission to include it in my blog. Thanks Lisa!

    What a combination of colors!

    How about that texture too?

    Several new fabric collections feature this playful color scheme.  I’m over the moon with this one by Dana Gibson for Stroheim.

    Deep Magenta Peony


    Fabricut stripe fabric pattern Radko Color Heatherberry. Please visit WindowDesignsEtc.com for more information.


    Starting out as this tightly closed bud, this peony will burst into a full blossom of rich magenta.  I’ve always considered green as a neutral and the addition of the lime stripe is no exception, it enhances the magenta.  About green, have you ever seen the leaves that did not compliment the color of the flower? Nature got it right!

    This Fabricut stripe made into a tablecloth would be the perfect setting for a bouquet of peonies.

    My social media followers may recognize this fabric from a post I did earlier.  While researching a project, I realized my recent manicure of OPI Dim Sum Plum was the same magenta color!  You can see it on Facebook and Instagram. Come follow me.


    So there are two of my favorite obsessions…..fabric and flowers.

    Check out more photos of peonies on my Pinterest board.
