 Curtains : Cuzco Jade £90 per metre. Chair seat: Almacan Peacock £84 per metre. From the William Yeoward range
‘ glass in blues, greens, jade and duck egg shades so l would like to continue to use this palette with my sitting room as my main focus.
I love many of the colours and patterns used in William Yeoward’s new ‘Palenque Collection’, in particular ‘Cuzco Jade’ fabric on the curtains and the ‘Almacan Peacock’ stripe shown on the chair (left). I think the stripe would be great for anyone who has pets like myself as it is washable at a low temperature of 30 degrees on a gentle cycle so it great for cushions, or for loose covers.
I am very fond of florals, however, my family is not so keen so I have decided I would like to stick to geometric shapes and patterns. Designers Guild launched ‘Tanjore’, a bold, geometric leaf patterned wallpaper which would look stunning in a variety of settings from the traditional to the contemporary. It has a more masculine feel which changes depending on which of the four colourways you choose. Patterned wallpaper can be more cost effective than buying a patterned fabric, and the more colour and detail you have in a fabric the more expensive it becomes. Sitting rooms require a large amount of fabric for window treatments, upholstery and accessories so perhaps a patterned wallpaper and simple coloured, or textured, fabrics would be better suited to the budget.
Another design which caught my eye is the embroidered ‘Sintra’ from Colefax and Fowler, used for making curtains and blinds and has coordinating upholstery fabrics within the range. I have a sofa in my bay window so curtains are not my best option which is why I am so drawn to this design as I think it would make
