The Designer's Attic Instant space

it's friday!!  which means it's time for the designer's attic instant space!  hope y'all enjoy today's offerings:
let's start our room: 
first, let's make our focal pillow....i think dwell studio's vintage plume in camel (retails for $80 a yd) will do just the trick.  1/2 a yd will work perfectly to give us that accent we need...
because it is going to sit in between one of our fav's- kelly wearstler's katana in teal (retails for $176 a yd)...1 yd for two pillows to ground our pillow arrangement (using katana as front's only).  remember pillow groupings work best in 3's! 
now we need to add a nice coordinating fabric to use for a small reupholstery project: think chair seats or what about an ottoman...2 yds of this camel paisley should work well!
now for the punch: our bookshelves need a little sprucing up and this insanely pretty paper from cole and son will work flawlessly!  we will throw in 1 double roll of cole and son's alpana (retails for $150)
and that my friends is our instant space!
PRICE: $195 sold as a set, SOLD
