Refresh Your Style Part 4: Textiles

We’re up to the fourth part of our “Refresh Your Style” series and this time, it’s all about how you can update your home through textiles!  One of the ways that you can do this is by reupholstering furniture, such as a sofa or chair, with new fabric.  This is a great way to refresh the style and give an old piece of furniture a completely new look.  Fabric can make a traditional piece of furniture look transitional, it can change the entire color palette, and you can keep that piece of furniture that has great bones, but is worn.

Another way that you can refresh your style with textiles is by introducing new bedding, pillows, or throw blankets.  Changing out your current bedding with something new is a great way to make a bedroom feel fresh, without having to paint or install new flooring.

Accent pillows and throw blankets are also an inexpensive way to add some personality to any space.  If you already have some accent pillows, you could also think about purchasing or making slipcovers.

Another option to refresh your style through textiles, is by switching out old window treatments with new ones, or adding new treatments if you didn’t already have some up.  This a very simple way that you can dress up a room and give it some more character.
