Throughout the past couple of years my style has grown and evolved, and as I have become more confident I have started veering away from minimal spaces and started leaning into a richer, more layered look that involves much more color and pattern. Although it’s easy to go easy, breezy all-white, pulling together a complex color palette and mixing patterns takes much more gusto – and the result is often so satisfying! Even if a room has a neutral palette, like the dining room above, bringing a bold fabric to the dining chairs takes some guts, don’t you think? I discovered how fun it was to have access to thousands of designer fabrics and wallpapers when I worked with DecoratorsBest for my father’s bedroom, and I was so thrilled with the Robert Allen fabric I picked for the curtains. Although they offer fabric, wallpaper, pillows, and poufs, I thought I would focus on their fabric selection today with some of my favorite choices in the neutral, green, blue, and warm color palettes. Check out my picks below after the jump.
I have a harder time with a warm palette, but I love the variety I found in the selection above. It took me a bit out of my comfort zone, which is always good! I’m also digging the green selection for the exotic jungle-y vibes and the cool blues, as always. Using custom fabric in a project is so much fun – even if it’s just a small detail like two throw pillows. Do you see any favorites above?
