From Sample to Swatch to Style: Fabric

I received an email last week inquiring about two fabric samples featured in a recent blog post.  In the endless world of inbox inspiration, these are the kind of emails that rate open immediately status.   It’s great to connect my readers with lovely things, so keep them coming.  Fabric, a self-admitted passion, remained on my mind for the rest of the day.  I thought it may be time for an all fabric post.

Color, texture and pattern are essential to a home decor portfolio.  One of the quickest ways to take indoor or outdoor drapes, accent pillows, furniture, ottomans, cushions, vintage revivals, ceilings and walls from bland to brilliant is with fabric.  Fabric has got fabulous covered!

Love your style!
