What Colour Fabric Should I Choose? | How To Select Fabric Colours for your Interior

Choosing the perfect furnishing fabric colours for your interior is a vital step in creating a harmonious and inviting space. At Becca Who, our colourful patterned polyester velvet fabrics offer a vibrant palette to choose from. With each colour way involving several hues, you can look to find the perfect match for your decor. Here are some helpful tips to help you choose the right fabric colours for your home:


1. Consider the Room’s Purpose

The function of the room should guide your colour choices for furnishing fabrics. Different colours evoke different emotions and can set the tone for the space:


- Choosing fabric Colours for a Living Room / Lounge:

For a welcoming and energetic atmosphere in a lounge space, consider warm colours like rich earthy tones, oranges, reds, and yellows for fabrics. These hues stimulate conversation and create a cosy, inviting environment, working wonderfully well in layers with various textures and patterns. 

Green and blue have always been popular choices for living rooms, as they bring the colours of nature into our environment, offering a sense of calm and relaxation, perfectly complimenting plants within the space. 

Darker hues can also work very well to create an intimate living space or lounge, elevated in the space with highlights from light sources and accent colours. Whether you choose the classic feel of navy blue, the luxurious touch of claret or the timeless glamour of black, furnishing fabrics in darker hues within your living room interior will bring a sense of cocooning and comfort.

- Choosing fabric Colours for a Dining Room:

Choose bold, vibrant colours like deep burgundy or emerald green to create an elegant and stimulating dining experience. These jewel toned colours can enhance appetite and make meal times more enjoyable. Rich hues on furnishing fabrics in a dining area can enhance our sense of enjoyment of food, socialising and relaxation. Colours such as black, teal or mustard add glamour to an interior when paired with metallic elements within the space.

- Choosing fabric Colours for a Bedroom:

Opt for calming colours in bedroom decor, to compliment the primary function of rest and relaxation. Pinks, soft blues, greens, and purples each promote recuperation and restful sleep. Muted colours work especially well in a bedroom interior, giving us the elegant, calm space we look forward to retreating to, creating a serene and tranquil retreat.

- Choosing fabric Colours for a Home Office:

For a study or work space, select colours which boost productivity and creativity, such as energising yellows, serene blues or greens. Neutral hues can also work well in an office space, combined with an accent colour to add interest and character. All of these shades can help maintain focus and inspire innovative thinking in a home office interior.

2. Select Fabric Colours to Coordinate with Existing Decor

When choosing furnishing fabric colours for your interior, it’s essential to consider any existing decor to ensure a cohesive look:

- Colour Palette:

Identify your preferred dominant colours in your room and select fabric colours that compliment or contrast effectively. Use a colour wheel as a guide—complimentary colours are opposite each other on the wheel, while analogous colours are next to each other. Each approach of combining colours can have different results in your interior, with complimentary colours adding character and interest, whilst analogous colours ensure a more seamless, calming cohesion within the room.

- Furniture and Accessories:

Consider the colours of your furniture, wall paint, and accessories. If your space has a neutral base, you can certainly afford to be bold with your fabric choices - colourful pattern sits beautifully against a backdrop of fresh white or soft greys. If your space already features vibrant colours, you might choose fabrics in coordinating shades to sit well in the overall scheme, or you could add more layers of colour to result in an eclectic feel. Consider the wood tones of your furniture or floor as a hue within the space, whether warm or cool, light or dark.

3. Think About Lighting when Choosing Fabric Colours

Lighting plays an important role in how colours appear in your interior. Natural and artificial light can affect the perception of fabric colours:


- Natural Light:

Rooms with plenty of natural light can handle darker, more saturated colours, as the light will highlight the fabric’s richness and depth. Lighter colours can look even more airy and spacious in well-lit rooms as sunlight streams through windows.

- Artificial Light:

In spaces with limited natural light, you might be looking to brighten the room, or to enhance the cosiness of the area. Choose lighter or mid-tone colours to brighten the space up, or select darker, cosy hues to add to the intimate atmosphere, being sure to select beautiful lighting to enhance those areas you wish to be focal points. Warm light bulbs can enhance warm colours, while cool light bulbs can intensify cooler shades, with warm light being the usual preference for relaxing in a home interior and cool for task lighting in desired areas.

4. Choose Fabric Colours Which Reflect Your Personal Style

There’s no doubt that your home should be a reflection of your own personality and style, a place where you feel at home surrounded by things that you love. Choose fabric colours that resonate with you personally and those which make you feel happy and comfortable:


- Bold and Vibrant:

If you love making a statement, go for bright, bold colours that stand out and showcase your personality through stunning focal points in the space. Becca Who offers a whole range of patterned velvet fabrics in vivid hues which are perfect for creating a dynamic and eye catching interior. You might choose to layer an eclectic mix of vibrant hues together in the interior, or spotlight key pieces against a backdrop of warm white.

- Calming and Natural:

For a more understated, elegant look, select fabrics in natural or pastel shades. These colours create a calm and sophisticated atmosphere, allowing other elements of your decor to shine. Natural colours work beautifully amongst a variety of textures such as wood, brick and stone, with textiles such as velvet softening these natural elements. Pastel hues bring a charm to the space which invites us to make ourselves comfortable and relax.

- Eclectic and Artistic:

For those with an eclectic style, enjoy mixing and matching different colours and patterns to compliment your favourite pieces in your space, whether art, souvenirs or quirky ornament. The unique designs available in Becca Who fabrics offer endless possibilities for creating a one-of-a-kind space that truly reflects your creativity and individuality.


5. Test Your Chosen Colours for Your Space with Fabric Samples

Before making a final decision on colours, order fabric samples of those you are interested in and test them in your space. Observe how the colours look next to other key elements of decor, and at different times of the day under various lighting conditions. Use fabric samples to ensure that you’ll be entirely happy with your choice once the fabric is in place.
