Patterned Textiles

It is rare for me to work on a project without incorporating pattern somewhere. I love textile design whether fabrics or wallpaper. Steven Gambrel does this so well, and how smart that there is a tight image of the pattern early in the photograph to the left.

Whether used on headboards, wallpaper, as art, throw pillows or bedding, patterns add so much visual interest to a room.

Do you love a wallpaper of fabric and want to use it in a small amount? Turning it into art is a great way to incorporate it into your home.

Old persian rugs are often inspirational to textile designers. The colors in this antique suzani are outstanding.
