This is a first! I'm hosting a giveaway. I've been reluctant for a number of reasons, but most importantly, I've wanted to be sure that brands I feature on Aesthetic Nest are those I genuinely care about and believe that my readers will too. When Waverly contacted me about this I just thought: "yes!"
It's a great coincidence too because I am about to pull out a bolt of Waverly fabric I bought at Joann about three years ago, when I was working on Scarlett's crib bedding, to start her "big girl" bedding! So I've been thinking fondly about Waverly. I didn't know they have a new line of home dec fabrics called Waverly Modern Essentials. It's available exclusively at Joann. It seems to combine all the tradition and quality of Waverly with a fresh modern vibe.
I love what I've seen of their new Fall collection: a bit graphic, a bit pop, some organic imagery thrown in there and even some ethnic motifs. A very fun, contemporary, combination. A little preppy, a little funky. Somehow I'm a sucker for the red, white and blue Americana mix. But I also love the Coral Citrus and Sterling Chartreuse (in the picture below)--I've always loved chartreuse and how often do you see it in fabric? I don't anyway--and with a touch of lilac!? And I really love that there are solids. I can't tell you how many times I've gone hunting, often unsuccessfully, to find a solid to coordinate with a print.
Waverly is offering a generous 10 yards of fabric from their new Modern Essentials line to one Aesthetic Nest reader! That's a $200 value. That's enough to start a room makeover or create a space for a new addition, or remodel an Airstream, or create a stash for some fun new apparel! I've often used home decorator fabric for clothing. Wouldn't a simple shift dress be cute in one of these prints?
You have the week to enter! Just leave me ONE comment and let me know which are your favorite prints (the "Tail Spin" mini blooms? the "Network" graphic, wrought iron motif?) or colorways in this new modern Essentials collection. I'll pick a random number and announce the winner on Monday, October 10th. Then the hard part: you'll have to decide how to compose your free ten yards. It's up to you as long as the minimum cut is 1 yard. So many possibilities!
I'm told the fabric collection is arriving in stores now. You can also take a look at the swatches:

UPDATE: I realize I wasn't clear enough in my original post about the comments. Please just leave one comment here and if you'd like another chance at the giveaway you can enter via Waverly's Facebook page. I've deleted the duplicate, FB-oriented, comments below to keep it fair. One entry per person here. Thanks.
