Style. First and foremost, you want to try to match the style of your furniture with the style of the upholstery fabric. For example, if you are re-upholstering an antique piece, it would look very out-of-sorts to cover it in polka-dot fabric. In addition, some fabric styles create a casual appearance while others are more formal. Ultimately, how do you want your room to be perceived? How do you want your own style reflected by your furniture? Many patterns may make an attractive addition to your room, but you should always take some time to try to see the big picture and choose a style that fits the furniture, the room, and your personality.
Furniture is an incredibly important component of a room's décor. In fact, many professional designers will tell you that you should decorate a room based on the colour and fabric of the main pieces of furniture in your room. But what if you are re-upholstering your furniture? Choosing patterns and styles can be a bit tricky, but by following a few basic rules, you'll find the perfect upholstery fabric to really highlight your personal style. So what should you consider? Obviously colour and style are important, but you will also want to think about the function of your room and qualities like fabric durability and other special considerations.
The first type of summery pattern that can be great to invest in is something with a print that is reminiscent of the summer season. This can include ice cream prints, checker board patterns with beach balls and sand castles, or patterns that features summer fruit such as slices of watermelon and strawberries. This is also a great way to add some fun to your upholstery, as all of these patterns are vibrant, interesting and out of the ordinary. As mentioned above, these are often a great choice for furniture in a summer house or for patio furniture that you only get out during warmer times of the year.
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.
