I have to admit, I was a bit shocked when I saw this month's issue of House Beautiful come in the mail. Shocked isn't the right idea... it was more like "oh shit!".
It took me a while to decide whether or not I wanted to bring it up or not.
See, back in July I picked one of these for a client of mine..
In September, I picked this fabric for throw pillows for the same room and even blogged about it:
Both of my selections [silver pouf + ikat fabric] were in no way original and have been around for years... but it didn't change the fact that I was a bit nervous when my Dec/Jan 2010 issue of House Beautiful came with the exact same fabric (in a different color) and pouf (in the same color). On the cover.
I just want to put it out there in the universe that this was purely coincidental and that I did not plagiarize! Okay, I feel better.
