A world of possibilities.

I have the luck to have access to hundreds and hundreds of fabric samples at the place where I'm interning so for this week I decided to choose some of the ones that I find interesting and create different combinations to analyze them and see what different senses of a space I could get. 

I only chose eight for this small experiment and I found out that this eight gave so many different possibilities that I don't even know how designers can make up their mind in the first place when they have substantial amount of finishes to choose from.

 Materials selected to create different combinations.

 Orange fabric overtakes the rest of them making a tired eye after some time.

 Combination of pattern size between the wallpapers, small touch of orange and reddish wood creates a better balance but I still feel it doesn't merge well.

 Brightness of the light grey fabric matches perfectly with the golden wallpaper and the grey/silver wallpaper. The touch of blue makes it a juvenile combination.

 Although I am using similar shades of color, this combination does not feel balanced or attractive at all. I am putting it here to show that even when each of the materials is beautiful, they can look awful when not matched correctly.

 My favorite of them all. This selection looks balanced and this is achieved with the same fabric (left)in two different colors, the golden lines in the black and gold fabric matches with the golden wallpaper and the small orange detail creates the perfect interest for the combination to look fresh.

This was a fun experiment, I am thinking about doing it more often. It helps to train the eye and to understand how materials relate to each other depending on the size, texture and shade.

Have a good week!
