This Week: Building a Scheme Around a Single Fabric
Jen for reminding me in the comments about the selvedge dots! A great reference to use when pulling fabrics!
Again, as you're pulling fabrics, keep a few things in mind!
1. While pulling individual colors, be sure to grab a few Tone on Tone and Color + White prints!
2. When choosing prints with large and small accents, be thoughtful about the colors of those accents! Those accents shouldn't clash with the other colors in the scheme! In this case, we're working with cool colors, so you'll want to avoid warm colored accents (pink, yellow, red, orange)
3. Think about using a good mix of geometric and organic prints!
Here are a few prints that I passed over while putting together my stack:
2. Park Slope by Erin McMorris - Pink accents don't match well!
3. Park Slope by Erin McMorris - Orange accents don't match well!
4. Farmer's Market by Sandi Henderson - Darker blue isn't quite right.
5. Modern Meadow by Joel Dewberry - Navy was a little too stark with the other prints, it stood out.
6. Weekends by Erin McMorris - Coral/red accents don't quite work.
7. Lizzy Dish by Lizzy House - Coral/red accents don't quite work.
8. Meadow Sweet 2 by Sandi Henderson - This shade is too red, plum in the Parisville print is more of a blue purple.
9. Garden Party by Anna Maria Horner - Plum is perfect but the pink accents don't work.
10. Full Moon Forest by Tula Pink - This shade has a little too much blue in it.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
