Professional interior designers and decorators have their little tricks to make a particular room look eye-catching. One of the those little secrets is hidden in the fabrics used for the upholstery or curtains. There are many examples of designer upholstery fabrics around the net, but I have collected the most impressive examples that I would like to share with you. Now, let’s find out what is so special about the designer upholstery fabrics, how you can apply them and what colors to choose.
Designer upholstery fabrics
Have you ever thought what is the most appropriate place to use those interesting patterns of fabric? Well, I have seen many applications but the most common spread rooms are still the living room and bedroom. This is because these two type of rooms provide enough space for decorative accents. Since we are talking about designer upholstery fabrics today, I have to say they go perfectly well with all kind of pillows, sofas and couches.
A great way to bring colorful accents in your room is to use vivid colored fabrics. For example, you can have your stylish living room with pale brown walls, all the furniture in white, carpets in creme colored hues and the sofa with dark purple upholstery. This will immediately set the visual contrast between the separate elements in the interior. Purple will, on its turn, bring the desired luxurious feeling.
Another idea is to use cheerful round patterns for your living room or bedroom curtains. I have include such kind of examples in the image collection displayed here, so you will definitely get the idea. Actually, these type of patterns go also really well on decorative pillows and cushions. And I must outline that if we are talking particularly about cushions, they have even more universal application at the hallway entry bench, at the staircase landing between the floors, at the club armchair next to the fireplace, at the bench in front of your bedroom, or even at the decorative shelf in your laundry or bathroom.
But what colors should you choose for your designer upholstery? Well, this is really a matter on your own preferences. The two major ways to make a stylish interior is to either blend the color of the upholstery with the surrounding colorful scheme or on contrary to create visual distinguishment with opposite colors.
