Printed Tapestry

If you are bored with the same old, monotone curtains and dull sofa shades, then shop for printed fabrics and change your tapestry. Go bold and mix different prints, or start easy by changing one part at a time. For instance, change only the fabric for your curtains and chairs.

a. If you are not sure of using prints, then add solid colour elements to printed areas. For example, a solid coloured wall painting on a printed wall. This will ensure that there is no overdose of prints.

b. In case you use more than one print, the prints you match should be either of a similar colour or of he same print family.

c. You may try contrast patterns, but ensure that they go well with the overall colour theme of your house.

d. Floral prints are the easiest to use.

e. Take risks and enjoy. Remember if it is allowed in fashion, it will work for home decor. After all, there are no rules!
