I am so excited to create this post today and share it with you all. It is something I get asked a lot about, and it has to do with one of my favorite things... textiles. It is something so simple that anyone can do to really add a designer feeling touch to your home. Textiles. Fabrics. They say a lot and not a lot of people think much about them.
Because I love textiles so much, I always think about the experience I am creating for anyone who enters my home. As after all, home is where the heart is. When you have specific textiles, the temperature of the room could mean everything, as if you are uncomfortable in your surroundings, these creations can't come to life. You won't be able to concentrate on them as much as you'd like to, especially if the temperature isn't to your standing. I would hate to think that my friends are either too cold or too warm in my home, which is why I've been thinking about installing a ductless HVAC system, similar to the one's at Energy Pro (energyprohvac.com/ductless-systems/). You see, my friend has told me that it enables her to have better control over her own room temperatures, and she said it would work wonders in a house like mine. So with that fantastic bit of tech in my home, it will enable me to create an unforgettable decor experience, something that everyone will enjoy.
As I love textiles, a friend of mine recommended that I checked out different materials and designs. "Get Robert Allen fabrics by the yard.", they said. What excited me about these fabrics was that there were a variety of timeless designs and the colour range of material is varied. This is what I love about redecorating, all the new ideas and how inspired you become.
I love a pretty pop of floral or designer feeling fabric in my home decor. Designer pillows already constructed can cost upwards of $100+ online. To keep these in my budget, I tend to sew up curtains or pillow cases myself. Super quick and easy to whip up anything with straight lines on a sewing machine requiring minimal skill in my opinion. So today I'm sharing fabrics I have in my home that I get asked about a lot, and a couple others that I really love and have been eyeing for a while
I get asked about the curtains over my kitchen sink A LOT. It is HGTV Garden Odyssey in Fog. I LOVE all the colors and the subtle pop of blue. You can look for a coupon online that will give you 50% off a single cut of fabric, but also Joann's has their home decor fabric 40% off often.
The next two I get asked about often are in this collection of pillows in my home. The pink floral is by P Kaufmann and called Rosie Raspberry. It's on a linen blend and seriously so. good. The grey speckle fabric is discontinued or hiding online I can't find it anywhere!
Here are some other fabric options I am currently loving
I hope that helps with your quest to bring some beautiful textiles into your own home. I really do believe that adding special touches like designer fabrics sets your home apart, because you don't just have the same target pillows that everyone else has on their couches. A lot of those fabrics I rounded up are really inexpensive, and 1 yard would come 36 x 56 so you can get a few pillows out of each yard. Totally worth a little more effort to bring your pillow game up a notch. I personally have samples of most of the ones I've sourced and can vouch for their colors being just perfect in person!
