Whether your favoured look is sophisticated or relaxed, traditional or modern, urban or country, fabrics can help you create a look that is individual, comfortable and effortlessly stylish.
In Decorating with Fabric, Kate French and Katherine Sorrell offer imaginative ideas for every room, including bathrooms, home offices and outdoor areas. They look at how to use colour, texture and pattern and how to choose the right fabric for the right place.
