Right now, just about every editor in the H&H office has a beautiful, colorfully patterned fabric pinned to their mood board. Whether it’s for a bold upholstery project or lively window covering, a terrific patterned textile is something we’re all coveting. seeking to add some color and life to your home? here are five of my favorite printed picks…
Tiny Trinket in Coral Reef by Robert Allen. This swatch has been tacked up on my inspiration board for some time, and it makes me delighted whenever I think of it cascading down a wall as a stunning drape. Its embroidered pattern is so charming, and I especially love the saturated Coral Reef colorway.

Nympheus in Linen/Stone/Pistachio by GP & J Baker. This is one of my all-time favorite fabrics! part of the Baker Originals collection, it’s a long-established classic. Its subject matter, scale and coloring are the best mix of modern and traditional. Plus, if you’re trying to find a botanical that doesn’t skew too feminine, this is the terrific pick.

Les Fougeres by Schumacher. Gosh, there’s just something so charming and sophisticated about this fern fabric. I think it would be so best as a roman blind or headboard at the cottage.
Product: Les Fougeres
Henderson stripe sky by Tonic Living. 100% cotton and the loveliest shade of soft blue, I love the vintage ladylike-ness of this graphic stripe.

Jacaranda in Willow by Designer’s Guild. Birds, flowers and branches on the dreamiest buttery silk — this fabric is a heartbreaker! It would look so stunning as an sophisticated curtain, undulating in the sunlight, or covering a powder room window.
