I LOVE fabrics!! When you look at this picture can you tell why???? Here is a plain, neutral sofa. All by itself, it would just be boring BUT look what fabric can do!! Instead of a boring sofa you have a wonderful backdrop for all kinds of color and interest!
If you look closely you will see that there are a lot of different patterns going on. This could be overwhelming but because they used smaller patterns in small amounts - on pillows - it creates an interesting theme. Since the drapes are a larger "space" the use of the large dramatic fabric is perfect. The key here is color! Note - how all the colors work together!! To get this look on a budget you could sew this quite easily. Check out sheets at Target to use - often an inexpensive way to get material! A quick rod pocket, let them puddle on the floor, and you won't even have to hem!
I would love for you to send me some pictures of how you are using fabric! Go ahead - be brave - and, of course, have FUN! j
