To create a space that is more than walls paint and make into furniture. It is often just textiles, which characterise the atmosphere with their patterns, colors and textures. With properly used curtains, fabrics and upholstery a room by now can be just completely different.
Bedroom, living room or nursery: when setting up an area can be wonderful to experiment with fabrics. On the basis of fabric patterns pillows, blankets or curtains can be matched. This one needs not necessarily to access finished products – make it yourself is sometimes easier than you think.
A style decision
The style is crucial to feel right at home at home. The one like it rather reduced modern, the other preferred Scandinavian sobriety or cosy country house charm. For all the styles you can find matching fabrics, which differ not only in colors and patterns. Also the materials and structures are very important: so silky organza fabric works elegantly, nettle cloth panels rather naturally and cozy art skins. The style decision but a very personal should be at the end.
Try and study
Experimenting with colors and fabrics, it is important first of all to find a toehold in the room – maybe there is a favourite piece of furniture or a favorite color, which can serve as a first basis. Professionals make more collages, so-called “Moodboards’, where they first bring furniture, colours, fabrics and patterns on paper together and combine. So you can see whether the items to one another fit. What it takes to do so, is a white sheet on the the furniture, colour, fabric and material samples to each other are placed or pasted. There are now several Internet portals where you can virtually create Moodboards. It’s amazing how big the difference in the effect of the different combinations can be. The best placing the collages in the room design, to look at different times of the day and moods, which you would feel most comfortable.
Repetitions and combinations
Has it a combination opt for, we can already start. What impressed the most, should serve as a starting point: this can be for example a dominant color, which is repeated at various points. To create a connection to the remaining space, can be placed some pillows from the drapery on the sofa or a shade out of the carpet is reflected in tablecloths or seat cushions.
Also, anyone who followed a certain style, can support this by textiles. So a casual on the backrest of the sofa, coarse knitted blanket can spray a cozy Scandinavian charm while the felt coasters or runner on the table access color and properties of the material. Currently also poufs in all possible shades and materials very on trend – responsibility to the Afghan fits made of felt with deposed knitting stitching, completely made of chunky knit, or in combinations with leather. All in all it is textile recommended, to use textures and colours in different ways in the space. A few breaks should be however, for example in form of a substance which falls out of the way. They loosen up in favor of the vibrancy that to strictly placed repetitions can be in turn quickly boring.
Made it myself
Especially in the home textile sector is itself often make it easy. Even for untrained closer can sew cloth napkins, tablecloths and even bed sheets or pillow cases with the sewing machine. Who doesn’t dare to, to sew in a zipper, provides the cover simply with loops, which are tied together. It is just as low-cost to purchase chairs with suitable material and a stapler if the padding in order is. Make a pouf requires more dexterity. You find detailed and simple instructions on the net as one such one with shag can emerge. For those who want to create not even hand, there are still local tailoring, that can convert most individual ideas and actually cheaper than you think. But still decorate with felt is the easiest, because this must be cut to just.
