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. Continue reading
Do you love the look of denim slipcovers but want more color than white or natural? You’re in luck! Cotton bull denim and yarn dyed denim fabrics are showing up in all kinds of colors — from earthy neutrals to saturated brights to classic blues. Here are a few colorful denim slipcovers to spark ideas for your next project.
This cotton bull denim in color Mist is a chalky aqua color. You have to see it in person — it’s soooo pretty. I’ve been drooling over it ever since I made a slipcover copy for this Arhaus Baldwin chair.
A cheery yellow denim slipcover and sunshine streaming through the window. You can’t beat that happy combo 🙂
Denim fabrics in warm shades of brown, earth and mushroom are versatile neutrals. A good option when you want to hide dirt and pet hair. I made this slipcover with 14 oz cotton yarn denim in Burlap Brown.
Classic indigo denim never goes out of style. I used heavy weight, medium shade indigo yarn dyed denim for this project. This darker shade looks great, too. Washes, wears and fades beautifully just like a pair of old school Levis.
Grey is another versatile color that looks fantastic in cotton denim slipcovers no matter the style. Like any color, grey hues vary greatly. Right now Big Duck Canvas stocks several shades from light grey to charcoal.
Andrea’s old chaise slipcover had all the classic signs of a well-loved piece: thread bare, faded, pulled seams and baggy cushion covers
In spite of its worn-out condition, her slipcover made a good template to copy. To improve the fit, I loosened up the body and took out the excess from the cushion covers.
For this slipcover copy, I used 12 oz. Taupe Cotton Bull Denim from Big Duck Canvas. Taupe is one of their new colors, which is a chalky grey-cast neutral. Very pretty!
Indigo ikat fabrics make the most beautiful slipcovers. I’m crazy about about the inky blue ethnic patterns, the authentic woven designs as well as the printed versions.
For this chair makeover my customer chose Magnolia Home Fashions Java Ikat Navy. It’s a cotton decorator fabric of medium weight yet it’s substantial enough to cover the thick, textured upholstery. Don’t worry about the dry clean only label. You can machine wash and dry it without any problem. Nice!
