The Power of Fabric (Part 2)

When we last spoke about ‘The Power of Fabric’, I shared that I often select my paint colors based upon the important textiles in the room. There are many possible sources of fabric inspiration: Window Treatments, Upholstered Furniture, and Rugs all come to mind. I’ve done rooms where the entire room is based upon just one of these items.
