School of Redesign
When choosing fabrics for upholstery, the most important consideration is their weight. Are the fabrics strong enough for their purpose? Certainly sheer fabrics can look lovely hanging as summer drapes at the window, but they would be a disaster on a sofa.
When selecting fabrics for furniture and windows, stick to a limited color range, but vary the textures and patterns. Try not to use the same fabrics on all the pieces. That makes the room too "matchy" and limits your options.
It is often hard to visualize how a fabric will look based on the small samples supplied by fabric stores. Big patterns, especially, will look very different when you have ten yards as opposed to a square foot.
