Inspiring ways to use fabric and textiles

There are so many interesting ways to incorporate fabric in your hope besides curtains in blankets! Check out some awesome ways I found:

Frame a favorite scarf.  Even if it's just on display in the summer when you won't be wearing it, you'll get more enjoyment from it than if it were  just hanging in your closet!

Use shoebox lids, styrofoam, or canvas stretchers to mount your favorite swatches as a pretty gallery wall collection.

Hanging your fabric on your wall as wall art is probably one of the most budget friendly options as well as it being so easy to change out if you ever decide you want a different view. 

An extra touch to your luxury bedroom! I have always had a little place in my heart for canopy beds and I love how simple this one is. I might be utilizing this idea to hide our heat pump...

Using some favorite fabric on a table or coffee table is a great way to make an impromptu table cloth or runner.

Even if it's just a simple project like wrapping a lampshade in fabric - it can really help a room pop!

Bring In Some Orange

Starting this week off bright and exciting! Although orange can seem like a scary color to work with, I wanted to show you some inspiration today that might make you change your mind about loud colors in general.  I actually always try to incorporate some orange in my office, because it supposedly boosts creativity! Used in the right way, it can stand out beautifully:

We'd love to relax with our favorite book in this calming nook! See more pretty rooms:

Blogs I'm Loving!

Check out some of the amazing blogs I've found recently that are definitely worth a read:

This dinning room screams glamorous to me! The glass above the fireplace makes a huge statement and the rest of this Victorian house tour is lovely - check it out at styleinsideuk.


I am anxiously waiting for one of my favorite bloggers books that's out on preorder now! Erin Gates from Elements of Style has always been a great source of inspiration for me.

Bloesem Living | The Veggie Collection - posters from Vontrueba

Bloesem also featured this new veggie collection of prints by Carmen to spice up your walls! This is a great way to add some color and life to your space.

Love this bar inspired by old crafstmen table, and built from reclaimed pine.  Check out more amazing reclaimed art projects at Sikada Creative.

Layers of color: how to break away from monochrome and embrace color

Sometimes, you can describe what you mean - you need to a picture.  I think the following examples are a great way to describe how to layer different colors in a space to create a harmonious and memorable room.

I've been thinking of painting my office a peachy pink, so it's nice to see real examples.

Scared?  Start with the guest bed bedding to try your hand at mixing colors.  From their you can build the confidence to work with larger spaces?

Anyone here a master at mixing colors?  Or are you afraid?
