>Design by Fabric, Part II – Inspiration Boards

>We’re back today with a couple more inspiration boards for you.  We took three fabrics with unique qualities and showed how the pattern and color could be interpreted and worked into a cohesive design.  We have a more contemporary damask pattern that incorporates a deep blue, a feminine lace-based board, and a traditional wool tartan.  All three feature a different color scheme, pattern, and variation in texture.

When you base a design around fabric, be sure to think about each element to the fabric.  Look to the colors, shapes, and weight of the fabric in order to build a comprehensive design.  Further, you don’t have to use EVERY element of the fabric.  As you can see, for example, the wool tartan is a visually heavy fabric but when paired with bright complementary colors and light textured fabrics, the overall feel is light and fresh.

Until tomorrow,
Kate Matthies
