Home Decorating Trends for 2018 include the use of black and white home decor fabrics. Do you dream of clean lines and slip-covered furniture in cool, crisp whites or do you long to cozy up to a dark, rich fabric palette of black, brown and charcoal gray?

1502 Fabrics invites you to enjoy the truly timeless contrasting duo.


  Black and White – an Interior Design Classic



Shown, are a few rooms using the same palettes but resulting in decidedly different looks.

The first living room is ensconced in black and darker neutrals. The result? Dramatic. Elegant. Restful.

The middle family room is dominated by white fabrics and paint. The light, airy look is accented with chevron pillows and black rattan chairs; creating a sense of charm.

The last room uses lively black and white fabrics off-setting a streamlined aesthetic. It feels alluring and curated.


Designers know carefully using dark and light fabrics visually impacts the scale of a room including it’s furnishings. Want to minimize an over-sized sofa? Try a dark upholstery fabric in soft chenille. Balance combining black and white by using one or two small patterns with one larger scale design.

Don’t forget about finishes, line and texture! They can instantly alter a room’s mood. Incorporate sparkling touches of silver and gold; chunky woven fabrics in creamy neutral tones, sculptural lines or lacquered walls – hello glamour!


Speaking of texture, Viva Venezia – a contemporary black and white fabric pattern from Madcap Cottage, exudes playfulness with its fuzzy abstract design…picture this on ottomans, over-sized floor pillows and bedding!
