Fabric Pattern Mixing with Slipcovers

Fritz Cotton Linen Custom Slipcover

Putting together a harmonious combination of fabric patterns and furnishings comes naturally to artist and painter Mary Bommarito.

So it’s no surprise her new stripe slipcovers look right at home with her cabbage rose rug, botanical print pillows and grain sack-like upholstered pieces.

For this project, I used washed Richloom Fritz Persimmon. This understated stripe in rustic cotton linen is big on texture and rich color. It mixes easily with florals, geometrics, large scale stripes and small checks.
