Frame Fabric As Art
Add pattern and colour with bold prints.
"Stretch a piece of remnant fabric over an artist's stretcher to make instant art," advises Joel Bray. Or frame fabric for a higher-end look. In former H&H staffer Emily Walker's home, framed Donghia Suzani jacquard fabric takes centre stage in her mostly-white living room. Frame a small sample of a pricey fabric you love, or even a bold but inexpensive option to save even more money. Framed fabric adds a personal touch, and is cheaper than most art. Match a series of similar frames like Emily did here for a contemporary look.
