Fabric Pretty

I was photographing some fabric schemes for a long distance client a few days ago and thought I would share.  This home will be very soothing in color, so pattern and texture are of utmost importance

This set is the dining room/living room

  • The embroidered medallion is going to be centered on the back of dining chairs.
  • Grass cloth on the walls in the dining room.
  • The fun retro pattern in the upper right is a pair of slipper chairs.
  • The textured squares in the lower left is the sofa.
  • The upper left is a sample of the roman shades.

Master Bedroom

  • The large pattern is the upholstered headboard.  It is a Donghia fabric called Carly.  It is one of my faves because I know the Carly that designed it, she is awesome!
  • On the upper right is a sample of the sisal, nearly wall to wall rug.
  • The middle right is a mohair for the end of bed loveseat.
  • Bottom right is a small scale houndstooth (another favorite of mine).  This will go on comfy lounge chairs and possibly the roman shades.

Basement Family Room/Home Theater – This room is going to be awesome!

  • The bottom left is for the pair of sofas.  This fabric is indoor/outdoor so it will save the client from spill disasters.
  • The bright blue near the center is a microfiber for chairs in the the theater, also will be great for spills and stains
  • The brown woven is for a built in nook in the game area
  • The leathers are options for the barstools
  • The squares and the brown and cream geometric are for pillows
  • The small geometric with brown, blue and cream will be blackout shades to darken the room for movies.

More to come, there are kitchen and bathrooms to design, kids to interview prior to designing their rooms.


About sanctuaryhome

The Sanctuary Home blog was created in May 2009 to augment my interior design business, Jamie Foley Interiors. Below is the design philosophy that guides my business and this blog. A beautiful house isn’t a home unless it speaks to its occupants and fits their lifestyle in appropriate and unique ways. I believe that design can be approached in two ways. The first is from the gut, what feels right. The second is from a logical methodical perspective. I design using the second approach. I feel that having a reason why a piece is selected, having similar elements in the room or throughout the home makes it feel unified even if the similarities are not obvious to the casual observer. It makes a home feel special and contemplative. Building the interior of a home is a process. I create a plan for investment pieces that will last a lifetime, filling in with less expensive, less important pieces that can be replaced when they wear out or look dated with additional investment pieces or of the moment trendy items that update the home. Using vintage or antique pieces with new grounds a home. If everything in a home is new, it feels like a model home, it has no soul. If you use all old pieces, if feels like you live in a garage sale. The beauty is in the mix. Creating timeless interiors involves using pieces from all design styles. It gives the home a layered look and allows a home to look as if the pieces have been acquired over time. Using furniture from all one style or period makes a home look fussy and intimidating. I look forward to working with clients with all budgets and design aesthetics to create a home that special to their family. I encourage clients to express their individuality throughout the entire design process, this ensures your home fits your needs and will delight you every time you walk through the door.
