New Season with New Fabrics – Welcome Spring & Summer with a New Look for Your Home #SpruceUp4Spring #WeDoCustom

With the first hint of spring, that instinctive feeling surfaces within us to freshen our homes, lighten the colors and textures and remove that cozy comfort we’ve enjoyed through the winter season. New, fresh and bright fabrics start rolling in and our imaginations soar with creative ideas for change. Each new textile speaks to it’s destination as a pair of pillows, window treatments or a stunning re-upholstery project. The color, the scale, the subtle shade of blue or green seem to call out their perfect place. New flat trims and cording are intentional companions.

This spring unlike any other, we are unwrapping some of the most beautiful decorative fabrics! It’s pure joy to unveil the newest the industry has to offer. Stay connected with Chrysalis Fine Fabrics Tallahassee to #SpruceUp4Spring and bring new life to your spaces. Be inspired with some of our favorite images on Pinterest!

Designing a Room? Start with a Beautiful Fabric!

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.


“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.

Use Vintage Fabric in Outdoor Entertaining!

Poolside, outdoor entertaining….. does it get any better than that this time of year in Tallahassee? We think not! 2013-09-13 16.24.49

Recently, one of our staff hosted an outdoor party at her home. The weather is perfect this time of year in Tallahassee and what’s better than a perfect poolside setting. The party was for a very special bride-to-be, so Danna, hostess and fabric-lover extraordinaire, pulled out all the stops. Beginning with a Chrysalis vintage fabric, intimate 4-toppers and high-tops were layered with white floor length tablecloths and the beautiful Chinese lantern fabric. The black background of the fabric highlights the spectacular colors of the lanterns while the new trim added that touch of the modern. Alternating colors of the trim kept the table toppers fun!  Expanding on the Chinese lantern themed fabric, Danna added decorative and functional lanterns outside the front entry and throughout the trees by the pool. Glimmers of candlelight provided the most inviting ambience for her guests to enjoy the celebration. We think it was a super-successful, super-fun design! Thanks for your constant inspiration Danna – and congratulations to the happy couple!
