For dazzling decorating, fabric can play a starring role in every roomin the house. It can add immediate comfort and warmth to a pillow, cheer to a plain window, or drama to a tailored lampshade.

Bold colors and serene neutrals, homey tickings and stripes, funky florals and luxurious textures are the tools; swagging a gauzy no-sew curtain for an urbane impression, slipcovering dining room chairs for a summer look, or layering on a virtual crazy quilt of vintage textiles for a cottage makeover can be the results.Throughout, you'll find how-to's and do-it-yourself projects, complete with shopping lists and "Fabric Workshops" that offer glimpses into the studios and homes of artists and decorators who have put fabric to use in new and unusual ways.

Color Harmony: Fabric Harmony: A Decorating Guide to Creative Fabric and Color Combinations for the Total Hits - 299  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (0)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating

As part of Rockport’s best-selling Color Harmony ™ series, this book will enable both the professional interior designer as well and the average home decorator to transform and update nondescript rooms and furniture in a flash. By providing the reader with twelve decorating styles from which to choose, the process of combining just the right color, texture, and pattern for curtains, pillows, and upholstery, is made easy. Packed with expert design advice from the pros and over 400 fabric and pattern combinations to choose from, this book is the ultimate resource for creating style and atmosphere in your home. Each chapter includes the trademarked Color Harmony palettes, as well as the lifestyle associations of certain fabrics, the artistic, historic, and design origins of fabric combinations, and the specific moods that particular fabrics can evoke.

Whether it's viscose or velvet, broadcloth or brocade, choosing the right fabrics for a home can be overwhelming. From hemp to silk to manufactured fibers, the quality, texture, and patterns available today are astounding. Fabric Harmony is intended as a road map to guide you through the countless options; help you identify fabrics and their appropriate uses; and inspire you in utilizing fabrics throughout your home to create a mood that is right for you.

Each fabric has its own look and feel, a certain weight in the hand. Fabrics can stand alone or in combination to add a unique life, texture, motion, and emotion to a room. They can transform a monochromatic look from flat to flirtatious, make a modern, bold statement, or create a restful retreat from the outside world.

Home decorating with fabric is easy and rewarding. Simple accents such as pillow coverings, draperies, slipcovers, and tablecloths provide quick ways to add color to or change the mood of a room. More dramatic presentations such as floor-to-ceiling chintz, a treasured tapestry wall hanging, or an exotic canopied bed can create other worlds within a room. Fabrics can be modern, exotic, and on the cutting edge of design trends, or classic, refined, and enduring. They can be feminine or masculine or a combination of the two. Color palettes can range from cool, with overall neutrals, crisp whites, and watery pastels, to hot, featuring spicy flavors, robust earth hues, or rich jewel tones. In other words, designing with fabric is only as limited as your own imagination.

Fabric Harmony provides all the essential information of fabric types and content; demonstrates new ideas for designing with fabric—choosing colors, combining patterns, and introducing texture—for the look you want; and inspires the designer within to transform every room of the home with fabric. It is a compass that points the way to discovering styles to suit any space, any personality, and any lifestyle and guides you in creating the mood that you envision. Get inspired, get creative, and get started.

House Beautiful Slipcovers (Great Style)Total Hits - 158  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (0)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
In a decade that emphasizes comfort and casualness over opulence and excess, slipcovers provide a stylishly offhand, easy-going look to any room. In this new volume, the editors of House Beautiful magazine examine the ways in which slipcovers can transform and revitalize any decorating scheme. More than 120 beautiful color photographs illustrate the practical and aesthetic roles these great cover-ups can play, whether creating a seasonal change, protecting upholstery, giving new life to an old piece of furniture, or turning a simple chair into sumptuously dressed seating for a special occasion. Also presented are myriad examples of slipcover styles and the moods they create -- tailored or loose-fitting, romantic or urbane, classic or modernist.

Included, too, is advice from decorators and designers on choosing the perfect fabric from the reliability and durability of cotton to the lushness of velvet and chiffon, from the tranquility of solids to the playfulness of mixed patterns -- and adding those all- important finishing touches: welting, buttons and bows, ruffles, and skirtings.
