As a decorator, I consider fundamental the presence of upholstery elements and derivatives in a project of decoration or interior design. Its use often becomes the definitive touch when defining the character of a room, either in terms of a harmony of colors, shapes or textures.
Environments of classic style they require noble and sophisticated fabrics, which stand out for distinguished applications and prints. Velvets and silks They are ideal for composing elegant curtains in an impressive room, accompanied by brocades, damasks, embossed geometries and embroidery (either in cushions or in the upholstery of some style armchair). And is that they are preserved over time updated progressively.
Stays colonial or rustic with an ethnic air they request linens, canvases, ethnic prints and fibrous, living textures. Fabrics of aged appearance, skins, degradés and coatings composed of natural fibers (like Japanese papers) are great options.
The contemporary styles they admit more functional elements and of aspect ‘clean’. What does not mean that you can not surprise by applying a vintage print or a ‘toile de jouy ‘ in some key element located in a minimalist atmosphere. In my projects I always try to develop a balanced mix of styles and compositions, with the aim of creating unique environments and transmit satisfaction and well-being to its residents.
I recommend some houses that are among my favorites. The German Zimmer-Rohde fascinates me, and I was pleasantly surprised when she presented her line Ardecora. The proposals of Designer’s Guild they are pure positive energy. One of his latest collections of coordinated fabrics and wallpapers designed by the fashion designer Christian Lacroix It is simply amazing. The one of spectacular stays that can be designed with such materials excites me … A very chic dressing for the most fashionistas, a very cool coffee in the most cosmopolitan area of the city …
In short, with these incredible elements we can take much advantage of any space or furniture, changing the appearance with small details.
