Finders Keepers is one of our most favorite patterns.
First, its timeless oversized floral pattern has been out for over a decade, withstanding the test of time in the fabric industry where most patterns are discontinued after just a few years.
Second, its ivory background is neutral enough to work in most rooms and adds just the amount of warms to a space.
And lastly, its slubbed cotton base adds just the right amount of texture and weight that is ideal for a faux Roman shade.
Here are the colorways and added options this beautiful fabric design comes in:
1) French Blue
Neither blue nor green, this is the kind of French blue that crosses over into multiple color possibilities. With a dash of old gold and light brown, talk about neutral!
And, it can be embellished with coordinating French Blue gimp trim (we call it the Denim colorway):
Or, if your aim is to be more modern, there’s always a classic grosgrain ribbon to go around its edges:
Peacock is the more subtle, less contrasting colorway. It still carries a nice punch though with just enough chartreuse.
Notice how the dark green is more subtle as opposed to the contrasting French blue above?
Warm oranges and reds are coming back in style, and Finders Keepers has a color option for that part of the color chart as well!
Here, the warm colors are cooled off a bit with a bit of medium gray.
And of course, this is the kind of colorway where a pop of red gimp trim isn’t going to take away from the fabric as a focal point.
Here’s the cranberry red version…
Or the old gold taupe:
And for a true pop of color, this tassel fringe in red and green perfectly picks up the colors in the fabric.
The trim is a 4 inches long though, so make sure your faux shade is at least medium length so that it doesn’t look out of proportion. For short valances (18 inches or less), we recommend gimp trim instead.
All these beautiful faux shade valances can be custom ordered here, of course.
