This post is a first, in a series on FABRIC
and how it really does make a home
FEEL so much more comfortable and COZY!


BEFORE
This bedroom has some beautiful furniture and great bedding,
but it just needed a little something more---


AFTER
What made the difference?

FABRIC

Curtains
Rug
Throw pillows
Throw blanket

(And of course see how much warmer it feels
with the lamp turned on!)


BEFORE


AFTER
Curtains really do soften a space and make it feel more inviting. 
The throw blanket and pillow on the ottoman
help to create a softer welcoming feel.




Notice how we brought the colors and patterns around the room. 
It helps to tie the space together.


The toss pillows on the bed have some solid colors and some pattern. 
But 3 main colors --- Green, Brown, and White
The green pillow in the front has the same fabric as the curtains ---
 we are moving that pattern and color around the room.


On the window seat we added more pillows with texture and pattern. 
 See how they do not all match but do look good together.


On the chair across the room notice the patterned pillows .



The curtains really do soften the space!


So add a little Fabric to your home
and it will FEEL more COZY!!

    Hi Angela,

    Can you put fabric over Plantation Shutters? My room is similar to this person's. However, I spent so much on the shutters that I feel guilty covering them. Yet, from your demonstration; it looks fabulous! It appears to make the room more warm and inviting.

    I just want to curl up in that room.

    Yes, you can have curtains with plantation shutters. Just have them hung out a little further from the window. (the hardware portion needs to be 4 or 5 inches deep, so that the curtains do not hinder the opening and closing of the shutters.) Also if you just have panels hanging on the outside portion of the window more for decoration rather than function.
    It really does soften the space.
