Being Matchy Matchy
You would think that designers would like the word ‘match’….but it usually makes us cringe. We love things to coordinate, but having every fabric the same on every piece of furniture looks bland and boring. To create visual interest in a space you need multiple layers and textures, colour and patterns.
Shop in several stores instead of buying everything all in one place. Keep your fabric swatches and paint samples with you at all times. You will easily be able to see what works when you lay it all out together. This process can seem tedious but remember, designers spend hours pulling fabrics and options for clients. If you want a room to feel pulled together, give it the time it deserves.
