Let’s Talk Luxury Home Textiles – Fabrics and How to BEST Use Them!

I now have not one, not two, but THREE room makeovers underway at my house. It’s enough to drive me nuts! I literally have 2 things left to do to finish our Master Bedroom, but we started on the living room before I finished the bedroom, and then I got pregnant, so now we’re working on the nursery! Mercy! 

I’ve never really thought of myself as a great decorator. I don’t have a “system” or any training or anything like that. I just move things around until I like how they look. I guess that IS my system! (And I watch lots of HGTV and play on Pinterest quite often, as well!)

Homes look incomplete without curtains, drapes, linens, and tablecloths. Home textiles make our living rooms and bedrooms feel comfortable. It is important to make sensible choices if you want your place to look luxurious and comfortable. Here are some useful tips to help you transform your residence into a beautiful, cozy nook.

Satin, silk, polyester, wool and linen are great options too. You just have to know where to put them and how to blend them with the rest of the décor.
