Best Textiles for your Home

vancouver-homesWhen it comes to decorating your home, the right textiles are a must.  Coming in to a room with just the right mix of fabrics and textiles can make all the difference in terms of both comfort and appeal.

If you are putting your Vancouver real estate on the market, you might also want to think about showing up the bedroom or living room space with the perfect print or fabric design.  The perfect blanket or bedspread can really enhance the look of your sleeping area as can even the addition of a few fresh throw cushions on that older sofa.

So when it comes to textiles, just where should you look first?  Well Ikea has recently launched a new addition to their line of fabrics.  The Swedish manufacturer is increasing their previously limited collection and adding many more lines.

Broadening both patterns and materials, the fabrics are now to be offered in linen and cotton as well as cotton-Lyocell blends.  The materials will be available for as low as $10.00 per meter.

Ikea is even adding a sewing machine to their line, though not everyone will necessarily be up for the challenge of creating their own looks.

There are therefore also many ready-made options for those lacking either the time or talent to take up sewing their own patterns.  Ikea will be offering a larger selection of bed linens, cushion covers, and of course, curtains.

There are plenty of prints to chose from, ranging from graphic black and white patterns to more traditional sandy tones.   The prints look high end for the most part and will certainly add something special to any room.

French inspired prints are a big hit as well with florals, stripes and toiles to please just about everyone.  These patterns were inspired by the truly traditional French textiles and offer up a dreamy nod to this classic look.

Most people will find something here to admire.  Remember that a casual mix of fresh, new prints can make a drab room shine.
