Fabrics provide texture in many forms from color and pattern to how they feel when we touch them. They are also one of the best ways to either quickly update your décor or give your space a whole new look. Add some bright new accent pillows to the sofa or go all out with an upholstered lounge chair in a print you’ve always loved. If you’re worried about having fabrics that might stain easily in high-traffic areas, consider a performance grade fabric for pieces that take a lot of abuse. These are family-friendly versions of your favorites that clean easily while having the texture of the linens and cottons that you want in your home. Sunbrella, for example, is an amazing option that withstands many of life’s challenges.
Visual texture adds drama; so don’t be afraid to mix your prints. Decorating in odd numbers always works, and 3s are the easiest. Mix your stripes and florals by varying the scale of the prints from tiny to big and bold. Layer different size accent pillows and maybe a throw. This will get you the biggest impact and tons of compliments from your guests. (Hint: stick with colors of the same tone for the best results, i.e. don’t mix pastels with primaries.)
Whether you’re a fan of floral prints or traditional patterns, metallic accents or breezy sheers, Country Willow has hundreds of tantalizing fabrics to choose from. Your senses deserve a treat. Pump up the volume in your home this summer with some great texture. Live beautifully!
