Fabric selection for a room can be tricky… there are so many amazing fabrics out there to choose from, that the task can appear daunting! What I like to do is choose a fabric that has all of the colors in the space, to help tie the room together. Tieing your room’s colors together with fabric allows for the space to have an array of color choices, while also incorporating hues from other rooms, bring multiple spaces together. I recently wrapped up a dining room e-design project, where we went through the process of choosing from multiple fabric selections. I presented the selections to the client with this board:
All of these fabrics can be found here. The client ended up choosing the whimsical bird fabric on the top middle row. It was also my favorite on the board. It’s a Waverly fabric, and we are using it to cover a canvas for art on the wall. When I started to look for fabrics for the art, I wanted to make sure and use all of the room’s colors to bring the space together. The canvas art was the client’s idea, and I loved it! What I love best about e-design is the meeting of the minds and the building of the decorator/client partnership. The client lives in the space and knows it best. When the partnership works well together, we can bounce ideas off each other and design magic happens! This Waverly fabric ties all of the room’s colors together, giving the space a cohesive, thoughtful look. To read more about this design and see the complete design board, go here.
