5 Ways To Add Interest To Interiors Using Fabric

Fabric is a great way to add instant interest and wow factor to any interior!  We're going to show you five easy ways to inject colour, pattern, and show a bit of your personality in your home - All with easy and fail proof ways to fabric.  That's right, we said easy.  Take a look...

1.  Obviously we're going to suggest reupholstering a piece of furniture in a fun fabric!  Don't you just love this upholstered settee?  The yellow paisley fabric really makes it sing.  You all know by now that we can help you achieve this look, it's easy peasy!

2.  Use fabric as art!  Fabrics, such as these from Clarke & Clarke, are so gorgeous they should be framed and used as art.  Wouldn't you agree?  A perfect project for the DIYer - Find old frames, paint them, and place stunning fabric inside.  So simple, yet so effective!

3.  Use bold fabric for drapery!  These kelly green drapes really add some serious gorgeousness to this dining room because of the pop of colour.  Of course it can be any colour you choose, but having a cheery colour in an otherwise neutral room, really takes a room from blah to blam!  We have a great selection of solid colour linens that would do the trick, and of course we also sew - Getting this look is as easy as booking an appointment at our shop.  Ta da!

4.  Start off small by adding pillows and cushions with great colour and pattern!  If you're not feeling bold enough to reupholster something, or have bold colour drapery, but want to add some personality - Then custom throw pillows always do the trick!  Come on into the shop, pick out some fabric that suits your space and makes you smile, then we'll whip up as many pillows as your little heart desires.  Of course, if you are a sewer, you may just purchase the fabric and we'll ship it straight to your door so you can start sewing some sweet little pillows all of your own.  Oh, and don't forget about our fabric promotion on now till December 24th, you can see it HERE.

5.  Go all out and do it all!  That's right, if you're feeling like you need some major oomph in your home, go ahead and make a statement with fabric everywhere.  As you can see here, they did a wonderful job of adding bright colours, various textures, and fun patterns to this otherwise neutral home.  It looks wonderful, bright, and still very tasteful - Don't you love it?  If you don't know how to start, you may book an in home consultation with Staci, or you can always show up at the shop with photos of your home for free fabric advice {just please book an appointment first so we have the time to spend with you}.  Okay, so this fifth option will take a little more work, but you will no doubt be thrilled with the results!

So, what do you think?  It's not too hard to add interest to your home using fabric, is it?  Just remember we are always here to help, no matter how big or small your project.  Isn't it about time you created a space you absolutely love, for you to enjoy everyday, and that reflects your own personal style?
We think so!
