It’s fun to update your home using color as the basis for the changes. If you are ready for new colors, you might want to start by visiting a store specializing in home fabrics. With one stop, you will see the newest colors and patterns on the market.
When you walk in the store, don’t be discouraged by the number of choices. Fabric stores are sorted by fabric type and color palette. As you spend more time, you will find that certain colors or patterns draw your attention. Pick the three to five that work best for you and buy a quarter to half yard of each one to bring home.
Once home, simply place the fabrics on tables and the backs of chairs. See how they look during the day and at night. Move them to different rooms. Over the next few days, one or two will probably become your favorites, or some will drop out of the running. In time, you will have narrowed your preferences to one or two.
Next step is to take your favorite swatches in with you when you visit a design showroom. This will save you time and it will help narrow down choices in the design process! The chosen swatches will also assist with your interior decorating inspiration as well, so have fun with it!
