Fabric is a powerful tool for adding color, depth, or texture to any room. Most people choose throw pillows or blankets to do the trick. But if you find a perfect pattern, you can also add it to your walls. Fabric is one of the cheapest ways to dress up a space if you use it in a frame. It takes very little fabric to do this, not to mention very little effort. Check out this great guide from The Spruce.
