Selecting colours for soft furnishings
Neutrals are best and white, cream, taupe, beige, grey and brown always look good.
Although you can make a statement cushion in red to add a pop of colour to a room, the best rooms are decorated in soft neutrals like dove grey, soft blues, pale pinks and light greens.
Do not use primary or secondary colours for your soft furnishings. Stay away from orange, purple and turquoise.
Instead use soft heather, sea foam and light apricots. Soft hues work best and will be attractive to many people.
If you make soft furnishing to sell in your store or at craft fairs you are likely to sell more if the colour is appealing.
Consider your colour choices and enjoy crafting.
