The final material to focus on when it comes to curtain and upholstery fabric is velvet. Velvet another luxurious material that provides texture and spectacular finishes to your room design. Velvet is strong and long lasting and may be that luxurious finishing touch you are looking for.
Other great prints and patterns that are appropriate for the season include butterfly prints, floral prints, tropical flora and fauna prints and nautical themed prints. These are slightly more subtle in their design and are not so exclusive to the season - for example a nautical print can be perfect for any room with a nautical theme or color scheme. Butterfly and floral prints of various designs and hues are also gorgeous in the home all year round, adding the feeling of something light, airy and reminiscent of summer without being too kitsch or seasonal. Furthermore, there is a great deal of choice here in regards to color and designs on the market to choose from.
Of course there are downsides and when choosing which fabric is the right match for your design and lifestyle, it is important you know and understand both sides of the coin. Cotton tends to wrinkle, which can be rather frustrating, especially when using the material for furniture. It also tends to shrink, which means while cleaning is easy, you need to take care.
Next you will find that velvet is light and can really add volume to your room design. When you choose fabrics, you want to focus on playing with textures. Having everything the same texture will leave you with a boring room design, but working with texture and colour will ensure your room makes the impact you are looking to achieve.
