One thing that is critical to home decor in recent years is the choice of fabrics for curtains, cushions, upholstery, etc., enabling us to achieve the style we want for our house or apartment. To achieve the fascinating result you want, just keep reading – we have gathered some interesting tricks and tips that everyone should know.
ARMCHAIRS AND SOFAS DECOR
SMALL PRINTS AND LIGHT COLORS
These two elements can bring lots of light and give a sense of spaciousness into a room. On the other hand, larger prints and darker colors can give more prominence to the chair or sofa itself within the decor scheme.
SMOOTH UPHOLSTERY WITH PRINTED CUSHIONS
When you use upholstery with printed cushions, you bring the focus where you want it, making the armchair or sofa the center of attention and avoiding the overloading the room.
“Hand-made” fabrics that imitate muticolored and knitwork patterns with a lovely traditional work are fashionable and chic. You can also opt for woven linens for more warm feel, or for fabrics with houndstooth or tweed designs for more chic and modern look.
DON’T FORGET THE CURTAINS
If you already have printed furniture, then choose curtains with a simpler design or vice versa – if you want bold and dramatic curtains tone down the furniture for a good contrast. You can also go with a soft sofa fabric and curtain fabric and enhance your space with pillow with charming prints.
Use loose-weave fabrics with lots of drape in light colors to get maximum lighting in any room. Transparent fabrics will allow the natural light to pour into your space and make it look larger.
MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE
When it comes to your curtain fabric make sure you think things through. What will your cat, dog or kid do to your gorgeous curtain design? If your curtains are going to become your daughter’s new superman cape, or your cat’s best place for hiding, then choose linens or cottons. Both are very practical and easy to clean. But, if you don’t have pets and toddlers, then you can think about incorporating velvet, organza and silk to give your room an extra touch of elegance.
When cushions come to your mind you probably think on the square designs. The round and rectangular cushions are also a great choice and can be all used to create fun geometric patterns.
PLAY AROUND WITH TEXTURES
You can choose cushions in the same color but with a different kind of texture: linen, silk, damask, chenille, or velvet.
