Guest blogger Sara Noble: Fabric finds
From Sara: Fabric is one of those things that can quickly transform a room from drab to fab in no time. High-end designs are easily accessible to the general public and reupholstering a piece with good bones makes all the sense in the world.
On my recent NYC trip I had the chance to hit many showrooms and see large samples of the best fabrics. These fabrics are often my jumping off point for a project. You can find a paint color to match anything but finding the perfect mix of colors or pattern in a fabric is more difficult to do.
Fabric is versatile
From changing the look of a piece of your favorite chair, sewing pillows to creating statement wall pieces, there’s no limit to the way you can use fabric in the world of interior design.
For those that are really daring, cover your walls in it! It’s hard to use too much. What’s great about working with a decorator or designer is they can sample and preview the fabrics. Therefore, you can play with options before committing to putting the room together. It’s the whole “try before you buy” scenario, and it’s wonderful!
