Over the years, we’ve learned a thing or two about designing living spaces.
Today, we’re sharing a few of our favorite tips that we always consider from start to finish.
Lesson No. 1: Choose the right fabric content for your family.
If you have kids or a pet, considering what fabric can allow you to live a comfortable life. Nothing is “life-proof” but good choices can help extend the life of your furniture. Crypton is always a go-to fabric for families. A nice full-grain leather can also withstand a lot of wear. Dark fabrics can help hide marks. Cats tend to hate scratching velvet (but their fur loves it)!
We love the look of beautiful linen and if you can have nice things then we say go for it, especially in sitting rooms and master suites!! A slip cover is also a good option for linen, since you do have the chance to easily clean and get a fresh start.
If you want to “go crazy” and not consider fabric choices, we say do it on chairs. They are usually protected by throw pillows and blankets and are relatively inexpensive to get recovered.
