Romantic French Fabrics - Gorgeous Greys

Thursday, June 9, 2011

This is the third in my series of posts about fabulous fabrics for French style interiors. This time shades of grey are highlighted, with the softest dove through to deep charcoal; in the perfect Toile de Jouy, embroidered florals and lavish silks.

Just a note: I have compiled these fabric combinations working from images online so please forgive me if in reality they don't work as well together! Most shops are happy to provide swatches
