Artist's Description

Update 22.09.09
I’ve come up with another collection; titled Contemporary Christmas. The images are accompanied with some ideas for decorating and celebrating Christmas. I hope you enoy it as much as I will!

Some fabrics I made into cushion covers for the Christmas season. I love the colour patterns of the strips and checks; Christmassy without screaming “Jingle Bells” or “Deck the Halls”. The different weaves and threads are also of interest; they create a range of tactile texture.

Decorating In Detail – For a neutral coloured sofa, fabrics in simple patterns will brighten up your living room and bring in the Holidays feeling. You can mix and match fabrics as long as they have a theme in the patterns and colours-it’s festive without being overpowering.
For printed or brightly coloured sofas, choose fabrics in neutral colours to avoid looking cluttered and busy. Choose fabrics that have texture and even patterns, if you’re brave enough, as long as it’s all one colour.
