What Your Fabric Says About Your Space
How many times have you walked into a room and immediately sensed its personality? Maybe you’ve stepped into a room with bright-colored furniture and a fluorescent accent wall and felt the energy and enthusiasm of the space. Or maybe it was a room decorated in black and white, a modern look that caused you to stand up a little straighter and walk with more class. Regardless of your experience, the fact of the matter is this: the furniture you pick, the colors you choose, and the fabric you select says something about your space to others. So, as you think about redesigning your living room, updating your furniture, or just decorating for the fall, consider these tips for choosing fabric and ultimately, deciding what you want your space to say:
Bold intense colors are often chosen in a setting where you want a sense of energy and fun.
Softened, greyed-down colors create a calming and relaxed space.
Earthy colors speak to the practical, but inviting kind of setting.
Lights and darks together can be tailored and precise.
Tweeds and solids are timeless and universal in appeal.
Stripes and plaids while more structured, don’t always say ‘tailored’. Often, they can be the element of fun in the room.
Florals are all about the scale of the pattern. Large patterns are more fun and casual while small prints can be traditional.
Shiny fabrics range from ultra-modern to ultra-formal.
Combining these elements can tell a story about you to the world surprisingly enough. Let us help you tell that story.
