OK, I admit it…I’m a Fabric Fanatic!
Why, you ask, am I so obsessed with something most people spend so little time thinking about? Well, I believe fabric has more power than almost anything else in a room’s design.
Sure, a room is full of important elements. You’re probably thinking: “Kristine, what about the paint color, or the main pieces of furniture?”
First of all, in many of the rooms I design, the paint color is actually based UPON the fabric. That’s right: I pull the paint color directly from the fabrics, sometimes using a lighter or darker version of a color that is seen in the fabric.
Secondly, many of the main pieces of furniture have fabric ON them–like the sofa, for instance and the chairs.
But I must say, it’s at the windows where fabric is really able to shine! Let’s talk more about that topic next time.
