FAB­RIC PAT­TERNS

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - Feature -

Even equipped with the basics of fab­ric mix­ing, there is still the mat­ter of the wide se­lec­tion of fab­ric types avail­able, in terms of weave and pat­tern. So here we cover a few of the widely avail­able ones and what they are best paired with. Def­i­nitely a bold and con­tro­ver­sial choice, the an­i­mal print is sassy and vi­brant, giv­ing any room a glam­orous ‘feel’. In line with its over-the-top na­ture, it is best to pair these fab­rics with shim­mer vel­vets and nubby linens. How­ever, do go with a darker or more sub­dued colour to keep the an­i­mal print the high­light. Do be cau­tious, as there is a fine line be­tween chic and cheap, so if you are com­mit­ted to us­ing an an­i­mal print, only get the best. Chevron is a fab­ric pat­tern that con­sists of mul­ti­ple in­verted Vs lined up and stacked in a row, or ca­su­ally known as the ‘zigzag’. It is cur­rently the trendy choice on the mar­ket, and with good rea­son, con­sid­er­ing its ver­sa­til­ity and bold char­ac­ter. It pairs well with al­most ev­ery other print. How­ever, the trick is to keep within a con­sis­tent colour pal­ette and bal­ance the scale of pat­terns, such as us­ing a large and bold pat­tern with a small and sub­tle pat­tern.
