Gorgeous furniture, custom-made draperies, just the right color scheme: all these things add up to a beautiful room. To make your already beautiful spaces even more luxurious, consider adding more layers with high-quality decorating fabric.
Throw pillows are simple to make, yet they can add a dramatic touch when created from sumptuous materials. Add some trim for an even richer look.
If you don’t have much experience making things for your home, don’t fret. There are some very simple patterns available. Perhaps the simplest is a no-sew design, in which you simply wrap an existing pillow or pillow form in fabric.
Start by placing the fabric with the corners pointing up, down, and side to side, placing the longer portion to the sides. Set the pillow in the center. Fold the top and bottom points toward the center. Bring each side in and pull taut. Flip the pillow over and tie the side portions in front, making a smooth knot. The best part is that this pillow covering is also easy to remove for cleaning.
Accentuate your sofa or bed with a soft, warm, throw made from stylish fabric that coordinates with other materials in your space. If you can sew a straight line, you can make a throw blanket, by simply securing two pieces of fabric together.
Of course, there are more detailed patterns you can use as well, but this is the simplest option.
Layering decorative fabrics throughout a space can make it feel warmer and more inviting. It’s also a great way to add more color.
Perhaps you love your current color scheme but would like to add just a touch more color or incorporate another color. You can easily do so with decorative fabric. Add a valance to your existing curtains or drapes, or add a table runner.
Create your own artwork from lush fabric. It is as simple as framing a piece of fabric or securing it over stretched canvas. Re-creating existing artwork by utilizing one of these methods is a great way to update a space with little time and effort. It’s also very affordable.
*If you don’t wish to make your own items, you can always have them made professionally, once you’ve selected the perfect decorating fabric.
