Fabric: say au revoir to Pierre Deux fabrics
If you haven’t already heard, the iconic Pierre Deux stores have been forced into bankruptcy and are closing their doors. This eliminates one very good source for the wonderful pieces that make up french country design. But never fear, OnlineFabricStore is here. We carry several manufacturers french country designs including the iconic toile patterns, checks, floral and plaid fabrics that are just as beautiful and more than likely, much more affordable.
– Black and white checks are a staple in french country design. They compliment stripes and florals and add that playful touch that is so important to this design style.
– Bold stripes featuring the colors of Provence are also available. Think sunflower yellow, grass green and sky blue to go with beautiful floral patterns.
– Colorful floral patterns evoke memories of the beautiful flower fields that are found in the south of France and so important to French country design. Many of these floral patterns also feature the ubiquitous rooster for a bit of whimsy. To learn more about why roosters are so popular in french country design check out this post.
While Pierre Deux stores might not be available, as you can see, it is still possible to create the warm and inviting french country look into your decor with vibrant and colorful fabrics and accessories.
