At Parachute, we love to play with different fabrics! How do you like to mix and match fabrics and textures?
Playing with texture is the most important element whether you are working with a neutral palette or using a lot of color. Using various textures to create a monochromatic look will always give the space depth & richness, which makes spaces feel elevated and dynamic. When too many of the same textures are used, a space can fall flat and be less interesting. A good way to start this texture play is with pillows or throw blankets on the bed or a couch.
You’re known for working with deep, rich colors. What’s your best advice for people who love neutrals but want to add more color to their space?
I would start with saturated colors as they are a bit more dull and compliment a neutral palette really well. Rusts, Nude Pinks, Dusty Blues, and Sage Greens are a great way to bring in subtle colors. For me they almost act as neutrals themselves and go well with creams, browns, taupes, and tans. I love using these hues as accents either in pillows, throw blankets, seat cushions, ottomans or in artwork.
