I have never really been into spots. Even as a little kid, I didn’t like spotty fabrics.
As a decorator, I really haven’t come across too many places to use spots. Except maybe in a little girls room.
I do however, adore the Mokum fabric called Angkor Wat II which comes in a range of fabulous colours.
Now stripes are a totally different matter.
They are fresh and seem to go in any situation.
I will often look for a stripe fabric to use on cushions or a feature chair. If I can find one that incorporates the other colours in the room then they just add the finishing touch by pulling the whole scheme together.
As long as you have the right colouring, stripes will complement florals, damasks, spots, checks and almost any other pattern. Even though they are considered a pattern, somehow they introduce a sense of calm and order amongst all the other patterns and colours in a room.
If you would like to introduce some stripes into your decor, contact us for an appointment.
