Decorating with Fabrics
There is not one perfect way to decorate each space, but some décor looks better and works for a space better than ever before. Fabric is one of the best ways to decorate a space and make it personal for yourself. Decorating with fabric is a great way to get both varied colors and textures. Using the variety of texture and color in fabrics and rugs is a great way to liven up any room.
Fabric is also a great way to not only decorate, but also add comfort and softness to a room.
When decorating with fabric, try to do the following:
First of all, use pillows and throws through the room. Draw different groupings together with a common accent color. Many people think that you can not use two fabrics with different patterns together, but the truth is that if you want to mismatch fabrics, you often get an even better look. So, the rule for mixing patterns when decorating with fabrics is to use the same background or base color, and similar colors within the varied patterns.
For rooms like the kitchen that are difficult to decorate with fabrics, consider coordinating rugs, towels, napkins, place mats, and tablecloths, as well as the chair or seat covering of any seat you have in the kitchen and dining room. This room does not have to be limited.
Another great way to decorate with fabrics is to brighten up your floors with non-skid area or accent rugs of rich thick textures and colors. This adds depth and comfort as well as the decorative elements.
Decorating with fabrics is not difficult as you have many elements to work with including: rugs, wall coverings, window treatments, throws, cushions, pillows, napkins, etc. You can use items like quilts, tapestries, and printed cloths for great display potential. If there is a wall in your home that you have having a hard time decorating, consider hanging a quilt or tapestry in that space. Such a piece can be used alone on a wall as a focal point or feature, or it can be used as a backdrop for other decorative elements.
There are a lot of ways you can use fabric and decorating with fabric is not difficult as you can mount textiles on a wall in a number of ways including framing smaller cloths such as doilies and lace, you can simply place them under glass and frame them . Fabric can be difficult to keep straight and balanced within a frame, so this is not something you should do yourself if you can afford to have someone else frame them, like a professional. If you have larger pieces of fabric, such as decorative rugs, that you want to hang, consider attaching these larger cloths or rugs to a wooden or metal dowel that can easily be hung. You do not know how to do this, in order to attach the fabric to the dowel, loop the top piece over the dowel and stitch it together. If you do not think this nice enough then consider adding finials or something else to the end of the rod to add interest.
Decorating with fabrics is a smart and inexpensive way to make your home richer, warmer, cozier, and better decorated.
