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.
In case you missed it, we have partnered with Sara Noble and the Noble Designs team! Sara will be guest blogging for us each month on things like up-to-date design trends, decor and more. We’re excited to pair up with one of the best designers in town! Sara has been designing for lucky Kansas Citians for over 16 years and has grown her company to include a team of five designers plus additional staff.
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.
Drapes are my probably my favorite application. It’s hard to beat good, well-made panel drapes. They are classic and dramatic, while framing the view and warming the space. For a more subtle use (and definitely more cost effective) you can make a pillow. Using one fabric to tie in all the colors of a space is great way to create a cohesive look.
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!
