Design tips for walls, floors and furniture
Walls can either be kept plain in a neutral colour or wallpaper can be used in a similar or co-ordinating design to the fabric. This look works particularly well in bedrooms and looks great with crisp white bedlinen.
Painted furniture is ideal with this type of look. If you have some wooden furniture you have grown tired of why not have a go at painting it yourself using a chalk paint. Preparation is key so make sure you prepare the wood thoroughly by sanding and cleaning the surface before painting. Creams, soft greys or heritage greens are the best shades to use.
Although carpets were traditionally highly patterned I would suggest using plain carpets or floorboards to give the room a contemporary feel and be more in keeping with modern tastes!
