The Liberty Design Team's Colour & Fabric Tips for Decorating
1. Create a Focal Point

Start with a pattern or fabric you love and build a scheme around it.
We love using the fabrics in our collection in combination with plain coloured fabrics and paint. It gives space to the pattern and allows it to breathe and sing.

One tip to create a truly individual room is to choose a small colour detail in your fabric and use this as the inspiration for solid fields of complimentary paint colour for the room. It helps provide a perfect background for the fabrics which is both surprising, liveable and truly unique.

2. Check the Light

Before making a decision about paint and fabric, check the swatches at all stages of a day in different light conditions. We forget that a room can change throughout the course of the day depending on the movement and shifting light quality (with many of us only seeing a room at the end and start of the day if working out of the house.)

Hera is one of Liberty’s most iconic patterns has been reinterpreted into a beautiful matte and shine jacquard inspired by silk pyjamas sold in the Liberty store. We love the subtlety and surface contrast here, also to imagine how the sunlight would hit the room throughout the day, showing the beautiful texture in the weave and bringing out the warm hues in Chemise.

3. Coordinating Pattern

We love to mix pattern scales within the choice of fabrics in a room. Selecting a bold large-scale design and offsetting against a much small-scale fabric can be a nice way to balance and create beautiful coherent schemes. Using the paint colour to bring together the fabrics and find a common colour which sits in both fabrics can help.

4. Creating Exciting Schemes with Heritage Pattern

Select a Hero pattern and offset it with solid fields of colour and even bold graphic paint effects in complimentary colours. We love the way the colour blocked walls in this image makes the Regency Tulip Wellington Velvet, originally created in the 1930’s, look so contemporary and fresh.
