I recently told you about Michelle Adam's eco chic online shop Rubie Green, which sells classical upholstery prints available in eco-friendly fabrics. All of Rubie Green's upholstery fabrics are made of 100% certified organic cotton. Michelle was kind enough to answer some organic textiles and decorating questions for us. Here's my first question for her.
CasaSugar: What are your tips for mixing modern and classical furnishings and fabrics?
Michelle: When it comes to decorating, I've always believed that if you fill your home with things that you truly love, they will always go together regardless of the style. I especially love mixing vintage and modern furnishings with classic textile prints. Take for instance a modern looking Saarinen white dining table and imagine it paired with vintage Louis XVI side chairs, upholstered in a classic floral print. So many eras and styles are mixed, yet the look comes together seamlessly and feels fresh and stylized without looking like you're trying too hard. In my own home I've upholstered a traditional bamboo chair with a classic zebra print for a look that's eclectic, modern, and a bit unexpected. Never be afraid to mix and match styles and finishes, and always buy only what you truly love.
Thanks Michelle! To see an example of how Michelle adapted this idea in her own home,
