Fabric 101

I looooove fabric. It’s one of my very favorite things about decorating. However, there are so many patterns, colors, textures and price ranges out there, that it can be exhausting trying to navigate through the mess. So, I’ve put together five different pillow fabric boards for your viewing pleasure. Of course, an entire room can have almost a dozen or more fabrics, so these little boards are best suited for pillows.

Fun pillows can certainly transform a sofa or bed in a heartbeat…and are a fairly inexpensive update. I’ve tried to create boards that are filled with different colors and design styles. Enjoy!

blue and yellow fabric

What board is your favorite? Sock it to me!

If you have any questions on where to find any of the above fabrics, just shoot me a comment and I’ll get right back to you. Also, if you are interested in having me personally design a board for you, drop me an email ([email protected]). I’d be happy to chat with you:).

Happy hump day!

    Oh my, I love them all! I guess my fave is #4. Or #1. Or maybe #2. :)

    I love the second set! Would love to know where to purchase the fabrics. Thanks!

  5. Malissa Said:

    I am drooling over #4! Would love to see an entire room designed around those fabrics. What do you think would be a good wall color to compliment them?

    1. kirsten Said:

      I’d have to say Benjamin Moore’s rockport grey would be ohhh so perfect:)!

  6. Amy Said:

    Hi! Love them all, but what is the stripe in the 2nd set? I have found the other two, but would love this one! Thanks!

  8. Katie Jane Said:

    Hi pal. I could save this for the next time I see you, but I might forget. Can you help me source #1. I’m thinking of a couch refresh with reds (to go with the greys in the room. Xoxo
