There is an endless supply of gorgeous fabrics in the design world, and that supply only keeps growing – traditional prints and color schemes, and designs that take the wildest imagination to dream up. If you’re going to be using a large amount of fabric in very particular prints and colors, that is generally a very good place to start when designing your room. When using dramatic print on a toss pillow, or two, then no need to decorate around them as these can be easily replaced or moved to another room. There are more ways than one when designing around your fabric – the most common way, pulling out colors that are either in the fabric print or compliment the material – another fun way is to pull out the “theme” of your fabric in accessories and furniture.

We can’t even begin to make a list of “Our Favorite Things (prints)” but we can certainly begin to share our inspirations! Today, we’re thinking Tropics. The sun is still out and the green is still green, and we’re feeling exotic. This bright and cheery fabric – perfect for a bedspread, or a fun pattern clash pillow – helped us find some rather fresh inspirational pieces.
