Any interior, even the most beautiful, comfortable and thought out to the smallest detail, sooner or later gets bored to the point of soreness. For some time we have been trying to achieve the effect of novelty by rearranging light pieces of furniture. But soon this will get boring. And then we think about the repair … But repair in this case is far from the best solution to the problem. There is a much easier, inexpensive and quick way to bring new bright notes to room design – this is a change of textiles. So let’s get started.
WAY FIRST – FURNITURE TEXTILE
The color scheme of furniture upholstery significantly affects the overall perception of the color background of the room. That is why it is always better to purchase upholstered furniture with fully removable covers – and it is more convenient to wash, and it is not difficult to change to new ones of a different shade. Often, replacement covers can be purchased from the manufacturer of your furniture. And you can also discover a creative streak in yourself, turn on your imagination and sew them yourself. If the covers of the furniture are fixed, you can contact the companies involved in the upholstery of furniture, and there are a lot of them in any city. Carefully study their catalogs, while asking the consultant how much the color of the sample piece may differ in brightness and saturation from the color of the finished furniture covers. Make your choice and, voila, in a week or two you will have a “new” old upholstered furniture!
WAY TWO – PILLOWS
Bright colored printed patterns, striped and checkered, strict plain, embroidered with satin stitch or cross-stitch, with appliqués or fringe – pillows of different sizes, laid out on upholstered furniture, will become both an interior decoration and additional seating in case of a large reception of a group of friends, and favorite toys of the youngest family members.
THREE METHOD – CURTAINS AND SCREENS
Curtains not only decorate our windows and protect us from too bright sunlight in the early morning, when we still don’t want to get up. Curtains can become your main ally in space zoning, replacing doors. By the way, for the same purposes, you can use fabric screens purchased on the occasion or made on your own, which can be easily hidden in a wardrobe most of the time.
METHOD FOUR – CARPETS AND RUGS
And we are talking not only about small rugs near the sofa or in front of the fireplace. Wall carpets are back in fashion. But, of course, not fleecy Persian ones, probably still kept in the houses of our grandmothers. Wall-mounted thin carpets with ethnic motifs or bright geometric patterns, as well as tapestries, are gaining popularity. Before mounting on the wall, they can be pulled on special wooden frames. This will avoid sagging.
THE FIFTH METHOD – KNITTED PARTS
While in a furniture store, be sure to pay attention to the sofas, armchairs and chairs so beloved by designers lately in large-knit knitted covers. These are quite easy to make on your own. If the scale of the work is a little scary, grab a knitted cushion cover, a knitted blanket, “dress up” indoor plants by tying covers for their plastic pots. The main thing – do not get carried away when knitting with contrasting stripes, give preference to plain yarn of discreet shades. It is better to concentrate on knitting – the more complex, more embossed it is, the more beautiful it will be.
