2. Tables need love too.

No table left alone should be a phrase, since there is nothing cozier and chic than adding some decorative items to any table, and it doesn't get any more decorative and chic than an elegant and modern table runner. Table Runner tutorial available here :)

3. Pillows 2.0

There is no such thing as too many pillows. Now repeat three times. Cool, now let’s color outside the lines and allow tones to mix and textures to blend. Don’t be afraid of mixing prints together, sometimes if one consistent hue is present, that's all you need to create a rhythm and make your space come together! Learn how to make these pillows here and here.

4. Netflix?

Imagine you just came home from work, tired with the need to rest or nap a little. Getting into bed all dressed up is not usually the norm, but I don't see anything wrong with taking off your shoes, turning on some Netflix and tucking your feet under a cozy bed runner. Pattern found here

5. Wall lovin’

Minimalistic style or not, nothing goes with every style than a fabric hanged from a wall. Either it’s to give some contrast to your furniture, or to accessorize your walls without having to go through the trouble of painting (who has time for that anyways?) - whatever the reason, you can’t go wrong here.

Make your hanging quilt yourself.

6. Aesthetic ladder

Okay… so this one is not really about fabric, but it’s more about WHERE else to drape your fabric... Still counts right? We’ve all seen the perfectly hanged pashminas on a ladder next to a fireplace and a cute dog. (or maybe it was just me stalking Pinterest boards) regardless, this trending accessory is taking all spaces by storm and changing the rules of draping.

7. Do placemats

As a reference to our #2 item, I think we can come to the conclusion that tables can not be left unattended. Who can resist putting a fabric on top of wood, metal, etc.? we know we can’t. So when setting the table, let loose and play with colors. Placemats tutorial available here.

8. Frames have other friends too.

Let your frames mingle with other items and instead of pictures, frame fabrics. We used embroidery hoops to change it up! But you could still gather different colors and size frames (or hoops) and play around with the composition on the wall to create a chic focal point for any room. Find the hoop tutorial here

9. Lightened up

Lightened up and fabric on. The effect of a fabric being constantly illuminated every print addict's dream. Well dream no further, because by giving your lamp this makeover your lampshade can be easily upgraded too.

10. Hampers out

Hampers should be out and about if they look like these ones. Fill them with blankets, throws or goodies for your kids- one this is for sure, with prints like these, whatever goes in them will not be the center of attention. Make your own hampers here :)

11. Succulentmania

Succulents have been winning the plant game for a while. Maybe millennials are killing too many plants and these have become more practical? Whatever the reason, they are tiny which means they are cute and tiny and cute leads to tiny DIY projects with fabrics. Just take a look at these pots :) plant pots DYI available here.

14. Deco Garlins.

We already covered wall hangings, but we thought we should have a specific category for cute little garlins that could be styled anywhere in a home- including walls. Take these hearts, for example, hang all of them together or one and you'll be able to style them anywhere you desire!
