Decorating with Linen

This week is all about learning what types of fabrics will give you the look and feel you are trying achieve in your decorating. Today is all about linen.

Linen is both textured and light weight which conveys a relaxed feeling while also being elegant. It flows and drapes beautifully creating a calm and cool effect. Here are some ways to decorate with linen if your goal is to achieve the calming cool effect while also being elegant.

Let's start simple with table cloths and napkins.

I love looking at this images. The way the linen drapes and flows makes me want to relax just from looking at it!

Tea Towels are a great way to add that refreshing touch that linen adds to your kitchen.

A quick and easy way to achieve the look and feel linen offers is by adding throw pillows.

And of course, curtains!


 Here are some great linen fabrics and great prices, some of which were featured in these pictures.
