My Dream Escape

My fabric was delivered today, as were the formica samples!

What do y'all think of this combination?
Okay, I can only seem to load one pic at a time, so this is the fabric

I like blue. I think the colors are a good choice for Texas! It will be refreshingly cool in the heat of your weather. Monitors are notorious for not displaying colors correctly. Does the blue in the fabric match or contrast with the Formica? I can't really tell. But, the other colors in the fabric are going to give you several good choices for rugs, pillows and bedspreads!

My choices of Formica showed up today. I'm sure glad I got the 5"x7" samples like Paul suggested. The one I thought I'd like... doesn't match my fabric at ALL. Glad you're having better luck Vicki.

I like your choices Vicki!

I would suggest you think hard about going with a color over a neutral for your countertops (and floors) only because it may limit resale, or date the trailer later on. Kind of like houses with shag rugs (only way, way, way better looking). If you plan on keeping this trailer for years and know you won't get tired of the blue, by all means go with it (like I said, I personally do like it)!
Donna: On my monitor the colors go together and the formica matches both the lightest and darkest blues.

I think they're great choices and agree with Donna that they're perfect for a trailer in hot Texas. I didn't have to think about resale because Egbert was (and is) to be my first and last trailer. My son can worry about resale!

I think this will be my favorite thread! I like your colors Vicki - they are certainly refreshing and cool! I have been thinking about customizing - and blues are my favorite. We made a trip to Chilliwack this week to actually see the 21 and spent a couple of hours yesterday asking all our questions. I was pleased to see that the flooring they have is actually quite neutral and not as gold colored as I thought it looked in the pictures - so I think it would blend nicely with most custom colors.

Donna, I picked a total of 9 samples even tho I thought the stock color would work, the blues were an after thought. When the samples came I pulled out the fabric, and the "stock", no way. So I lined them all up on the fabric and it was the last one that I liked the best!
I will try to get a picture of them together later.

Hillary - the resale issue came up at home last night.i said I would be dead and buried, so what did I care

My only concern would be if I change the fabric at some point, but then I just did new counter tops in my A/S and found it quite fun.

Thanks for all the good thoughts! We'll just have to wait and see what it looks like. I do have a friend that is a designer, maybe I should talk to her...

I love these colours! While the stock colours are nice and neutral, I really like your selection!
