Fabric: luscious red decor fabrics will add some spice to your decorating

It is certainly not too early to add a touch of love to your home decor in preparation for Valentine’s Day.  Who knows….a gentle reminder just might get that special someone in your life in the mood for a little shopping if you know what I mean!

The selection of red fabric is virtually unlimited.  Regardless of whether you prefer a friendly stripe or polka dot or would rather opt for a sophisticated and romantic velvet or satin, there is something for everyone.

Red accents can be added to any color scheme.  Here a just a few ideas for you:

  • Pop a few pillows on the couch.  Add some coordinating trim for a designer look
  • add a red accent band to a pair of standard drapery panels
  • Upholster a small footstool or recover your dining table chair seats in red suede

Take a look at these red ideas and see if you find something that will light a fire under your loved one.

Effortless Style blog offers a fun loving red and white striped chair that will brighten any space.

In this room courtesy of Decorpad a band of red fabric has been added to simple white draperies and a vintage chair has been spray painted in a yummy shade of lipstick red.  Lots of red accessories completes the look.

Is there anything sexier or more romantic than red velvet?  If you are not going to wear it then add it to your home decor in the form of a new bedskirt or pillow shams for the master bedroom, for example.  This red velvet chair certainly has a come hither look to it!
