One of my favorite parts of the design process with a client has to be fabric selection. I love going thru my fabric library and putting together different colors and patterns from a variety of vendors. It’s always interesting to see the mix come together especially when you are representing a variety of fabric houses. Sometimes I find that when you pick everything from the same fabric house it ends up looking like a hotel room with everything matching perfectly. My latest pattern play put together some of my favorite colors, blush, teal and citron. I loved these colors together and it could easily work in a little girls nursery, a formal living room or a master bedroom. So many options!
No. 1 My main inspiration point was this stunning fabric that looks like hand-painted flowers. I love seeing all of the brushstrokes.
No. 2 Imperial Trellis was everywhere a couple of years ago and then it got over played and so many knock offs were made. It made me get tired of the pattern for a while, but I’m back to loving it especially if it’s the real deal. Imagine curtains in this pattern!
No. 3 Another pattern that has been overplayed these years is chevron or zig zag. It’s been everywhere. Once I start seeing it pop up in big box retailers I start losing interest and then once it’s available at a dollar store type store then I’m really over it. I haven’t used it in years, but this year I started to enjoy it again especially when it’s done in a different manner like this chevron print from Brunschwig & Fils.
No. 4 The small ikat pattern brings together all of the colors from the fabric story.
No. 5 Latticely is the citron lattice fabric that has a stripe pattern to it with the placement of the lattice. I like the ivory background which gives the fabric a less busy feel to it.
No. 6 A solid is always nice to throw in the mix and it’s what I recommend for upholstery pieces. Really loving this velvet in the salmon shade. It’s super soft and the perfect neutral.
