Welcome to Part 1. Combining Fabric Patterns.
Today we are going to cover 5 basic principals in combining fabrics just like the designers do?
Are you struggling with your rooms in your home at the moment. Just can't get it quiet right??
Lets work step by step together over the next couple of blogs to try and work out your patterns.
Step 1. Always find one basic fabric you like and work around it! Whether it be a solid, striped, floral design.
This design will be your foundation for the room. Then we shall work from this piece.
Step 2. Golden rule of design try not to use more than 3 design patterns in the one room. Otherwise, the effect
will be of mess & distraction rather than calm & balance.
Step 3. Be creative and think outside the square. Vary your style of the patterns. Instead of choosing 3 striped fabrics,
throw in a floral or geometric pattern. Or one of each. Bearing in mind the colours co- ordinate together.
Step 4. Unite the patterns with a common colour. If your foundation colour is Olive green, all of the chosen fabrics should have
this Olive green as the prominent colour.
Step 5. Don't cluster the patterns in one area of the room. Spread them out in at least 3 different areas of your room to give visual
balance to your room..
I do hope these tips help and give you something to think about.
Step 6-10 will be available very soon on my blog.
