Our trend watch this month … we’re focused on Metallic Fabrics …
everything from itty bitty shiny threads weaving throughout fabrics to subtle hints of barely there shine to full on glitz and glamour.
We began seeing the metallic trend a while back in clothing and shoes …
I just purchased a pair of espadrilles in a metallic bronze color they go with everything … love that!

True to form home fashion follows runway fashion …
we are now seeing metallic fabrics enter the home in pillows, drapery fabrics and even upholstery fabrics.
I for one love a little metallic in the textile mix. Try a full drapery panel in a metallic/linen blend like the ones below from Trend Fabrics for an updated fresh feel.
The fun thing about metallic fabrics for the home is that they are available in an array of colors from the standard bronze, silver and gold to pale blues and yellows.
The upholstery fabric below from Kravet Fabrics has the slightest bit of metallic thread running through it, just adding a bit of brightness.
My tip ~
I treat metallic fabrics like animal prints … a little goes a long way.
Choose one item in a metallic or metallic blended fabric
~ a few pillows, window treatments or an upholstered piece.
When you choose one item it makes a statement and doesn’t overwhelm the space.
Have a great weekend!!
and as always, thanks for sharing your week with me! ~ Nancy
be happy + be comfortable in your home
