Everyone should introduce a little pattern and texture into their space. A great pattern can add a lot of interest to a room, in previous posts we have seen how it can be done in various paint applications so today’s focus is on textiles. A few good fabrics can bring an entire design scheme together. It can be drawn on for colour palette inspiration or help to showcase your personality.
Tips: If you apprehensive about pattern start with more cost effective items like table settings, pillows, lamp shades and small area rugs until you gain confidence in your selections. Or – pick up that fabric you love, by a small piece, frame it or mount it on the wall for an art alternative.
