Fabric is one of the easiest ways to refresh a room and reflect your personality inside your home.  Fabrics bring beautiful pattern indoors, add interesting texture, soft comfort, and instantly establish the mood of a space.  Here are ten tips for decorating with textiles around the home!        

1.  A no fail way to decorate with fabric is to stick with one color and layer it around the room, like the shams, bed skirt, and complementary block print style paisley duvet in this serene green bedroom space.

2.  Solid color fabrics are an easy choice for bringing softness and color to your home.  Opt for accessories in the form of pillows and an area rug in the same hue to pull the look together.

3.   If you love a bold pattern but don’t want it to overwhelm, then use it smaller doses like these breakfast nook chairs.

4.  Colors that sit next to each other on the color wheel share undertones and naturally make a good pair like these blues and greens.  Layer florals, geometrics, solids, or stripes in the same dynamic duo.
