Lovely feature with our new SS17 collection, plus an expert tip from Sian: "Buying fabric by the metre is very versatile, as it allows you to create all sorts of things for your home. Not just for curtains, blinds, or cushion-making, which often has to be done by an expert – you can also use it to make lampshades with kids you can buy from eBay – or to cover boring or tired headboards by stapling your fabric over the top. Both of these will instantly lift a room! All sorts of patterns can work together, so long as you have a colour theme. Start layering u patterns in all sorts of styles and you will create a sophisticated and on-trend look."
