Using an Anchor Fabric as a Design Springboard
In her recently released book, Dream Design Live, award-winning interior decorator Paloma Contreras gives us an insight into her design process.
She reveals that when working on a new project, early on, she'll select an anchor fabric to be the impetus for the overall vision of the room.
The anchor fabric is typically a fabric that she is very inspired by and whose colors and pattern serve as a springboard for subsequently selecting complementary fabrics, trims, rugs, window treatments, and other pieces.
Since she typically uses solid fabrics on larger pieces of furniture, the anchor fabric is usually reserved for smaller pieces such as pillows. Small doses of a fabulous fabric goes a long way towards adding personality and making a statement in the room.
We were so honored that Paloma chose to feature our pillows in her book (pg 77!) and list us in the recommended Resources section. Below are her picks for which of our pillows she'd use as anchors and which other pillows she'd combine them with:
