I’ve developed a minor obsession with fabric swatch mood boards that interior designers seem to throw together with ease and post on Insta before they present to their clients. I realize that these are professionals who are adept at navigating through tons of sample swatches, but I’m still in awe of the mixing and matching of colors, textures and styles. Fabulous fabrics can make a huge difference in your space; throw pillows, curtains with a special piece of trim or having one statement piece upholstered changes the whole look.
