Decorating with Fabric

Hundreds of ideas for window treatments, bed linens, pillows, slipcovers and lampshades

Whether your favored look is sophisticated or relaxed, traditional or modern, urban or country, fabrics can help you create a look that is individual, comfortable, and effortlessly stylish.

In Decorating with Fabric, Kate French and Katherine Sorrell offer imaginative ideas for every room, including bathrooms, home offices, and outdoor areas. They look at how to use color, texture, and pattern and how to choose the right fabric for the right place. With the help of specially commissioned photographs by Lisa Cohen, many showing the work of internationally renowned designers, Kate and Katherine demonstrate the timeless appeal of fabrics in myriad forms, from throw pillows to slipcovers to lampshades.

While there are plenty of simple yet effective ideas that would be both useful and beautiful in any home, Decorating with Fabric also features a range of more unusual ideas, from using vintage grain sacks for pillow covers or mirrored bedspreads as curtains. The authors show that no matter what your budget, you can employ fabrics in many exciting ways to express your personality and inject style into your home.
