This Isn't Your Grandma's Embroidery!

Embroidered fabrics are really hot right now.  With that said, you should never add something to your home because it's trendy.  You choose it because you like it and it reflects your taste.  I love embroidered fabrics.  Not only the unique designs they have, but the texture they can bring in.  They are perfect for pillows, accent bands on drapery panels or a bench at the foot of your bed.

These types of embroidered fabrics have been around a long time.  The Mexican Otomi fabric is gorgeous with bright colors and usually feature animals or people.  You can also find beautiful examples of embroidered fabrics from India.  What I like best about both of these fabrics are their wonderful use of color.

Traditional Indian Fabric

You can find embroidered fabrics in all colorways, patterns and price points.  Here are some amazing examples of embroidered fabrics I have in my studio and are available through Jennifer Taylor Design.  Email me for details or if you would like to bring some embroidered fabrics into your space, I can make that happen for you!

This is a detail of a linen/silk fabric in lilac and green.
I'm using this fabric for some bed pillows.
This fabric is right on trend with the embroidery, colors and Southwest pattern.
This is an upholstery grade linen fabric from Beacon Hill.
The colors in this linen are to die for. 
Love the darker thread on the white linen fabric.
