In a recent article at freshome Design & Architecture Magazine, our beliefs were confirmed regarding the basis for interior design in #6 of 10 Mistakes That (Almost) Everyone Makes in Interior Design.
#6: BUY FABRICS AND TEXTILES FIRST
“A common mistake that most of us are guilty of—painting first. Put that paint brush down! First, you need to pick out the rooms fabrics and main textiles, such as rugs and curtains.
Why is this? Because it is simply much easier to find fabrics that we love and then pick out paint to match. While it is much harder to find a fabric that we love, that also just so happens to match the paint we have already put on our walls.
So, with budget and room size in mind, go for a shopping excursion. Look through samples of fabrics, rugs, pillows etc… Find what you love and then once you are happy with your design choices, pick out a paint shade or shades from the chosen textiles. Now you can pick up the paint brush.”
Of course, textiles are near to our heart and this article served to reinforced our belief that fabulous designer fabrics are the perfect start to a room design that you will love for years to come.
