I wrote a post on Afros and Glitter a while back discussing which fashion rules were made to be broken. Rigid matching of colors, patterns, or texture is unflattering whether on your body or in your home.
Case in point:
These African textiles refuse to let me go. I did a bit of
shopping research this weekend and recreated the fashion shot in a palette of decor fabric swatches.
The best part about doing my
shopping research on Fabrics.com was realizing all these fabrics were $7.50 or less.
