Colors that are great for this time of year include pale and rose pinks, baby blues, light greens, yellows and corals. All of these are representative of the colors we find outside in nature at this time of the year, and therefore look fantastic on furniture. Although blocks of color in these shades can look great, there is also the choice to select very subtle prints and designs, such as a upholstery fabric which features its colors in a 'watercolor' style print rather than a regular plain color. This has the appearance that the color has been painted on a blank canvas and can look stunning and very summery indeed.
Next is silk. When looking at silk for curtain and upholstery fabrics then you are looking at sheer luxury. Silk oozes luxury and comfort and is an absorbent fabric which is used for garments, curtains and more. It is important to note that while silk may give you a luxurious finish, it is not ideal if you want darker and thicker curtains to block out the sun. Further, you will note that this material usually needs to be dry cleaned.
On the other hand, in a room frequented by children or pets, white and other delicate colours are not a great idea. Some things you can consider when choosing upholstery fabric is mood and how colour temperature impacts the mood of that room. Warm and cool colours create different atmospheres. Also, try to avoid trendy colours, especially if you're not sure how you'll feel about that colour when it's not so trendy anymore.
You probably never knew there was a variety of velvets to choose from. Not all velvets are the same. There is linen velvet, which is one of the more popular varieties and is lighter, cooler and provides texture. There is silk velvet which is very indulgent, the printed velvet gives you some depth and design, a perfect finish to your room while crushed can give you a different design to add texture and style to your room finish.
