Masculine Home Decor Fabric
It is no wonder we love the look and feel of men’s suits. The fabrics are usually textural in nature and include wonderful worsted wools, expensive looking linen, soft microfibers and, for the brave soul, cotton seersucker. Patterns include houndstooth check, subtle stripes and plaids and knubby tweeds. Colors are neutral and rich and come in shades of brown, gray, tan and black.
Using these fabrics in home decorating has become very popular. They add a touch of sophistication to a den, family room, formal living room or a bedroom. Try to envision a club chair upholstered in a classic brown tweed or throw pillows made from a black and white houndstooth check. Subtle plaid fabrics will give a tailored look to a cornice board or stationary drapery panels.
If you just want to use a sampling of this fabric in a room, consider covering a small ottoman or footstool, a lampshade, even picture frames. Combining a gray plaid with all the mercury glass accessories available today will give your home an instant update without appearing trendy.
