I love black.
Something about a highly graphic, neutral pattern scheme does it for me every time, seeing as the visual interest makes up for the lack of color. I'm not a huge neutral person (beige, taupe, cream, etc), but this I can do. I pulled these fabrics specifically thinking of a loft or penthouse space. Surrounded by eclectic artwork, interesting books, great personal photography, beautiful flowers and a generous mix of flea market/retail furniture, these patterns would sing (I especially love the greek key & polka dot prints for drapery)!
Polka dot: Groundworks GWF 2810-18
Greek Key: Robert Allen Gemveto/Slate
Herringbone: Kravet 27515-81
Grey Velveteen: Donghia 10122/19
Geometric Zebra: Robert Allen Zebra Geo/Ink
Which is your favorite??
