I am so very excited to share a great product with you.  As I told you Monday, I’m working on redecorating my family room.  As pretty as it is, it is beginning to show a lot of wear.  I have two goals with this redecorating project: Keep my neutral pallet with pops of color and increase durability.  I’ve wanted to add some more color in there for a while now and after a few years, the fabric began to show extreme wear and fading. Enter these gorgeous Crypton Home Fabrics.

Crypton Home Fabric is going to be perfect in this room.  Their patented technology increases the stain resistance, strenghtens the fabric and comes in 100s of colors!  You can see from other photos of my home, whites are my preference.  I’ll be using a gorgeous white chenille on the sofas.  Wait, what? White with kids in the family room!?!?  Yes, Crypton has made the dream fabric that can stand up to everything from my Pomegranate Margarita to pink popsicles.

Crypton Home Fabrics is a lead innovator in performance fabrics and builds its technology into every fiber so that the permanent stain resistance and release properties; microbial resistance, odor control and integrated barrier ensure nothing can penetrate into the cushion for the life of the fabric.

Crypton Home Fabrics offers performance textiles such as linen, cotton, suede and chenille are so very soft, available gorgeous colors and indistinguishable from other home fabrics except for their performance.  I’d love to have a party and truly not care if something is spilled because I know it will just wipe away! Crypton’s breakthrough performance technology is built into every fiber, so it won’t ever wear away. Spills and stains are easy to clean, and odors don’t cling.

These fabrics are also free of potentially harmful levels of chemicals as well as odor and skin sensitizers. I love that these American made fabrics are environmentally friendly, GreenGuard certified and backed by Crypton’s years of expertise in performance fabrics.

Crypton also makes fabrics for brands you know like Thibaut, Duralee, Robert Allen, JF Fabrics, Fabricut, Kravet and more.  Many furniture manufacturers also use Crypton Fabrics so be sure to ask for them.

Stay tuned for the final products. I can’t wait for them to arrive!

UPDATE: You can see the finished product here!



Thank you to Crypton for partnering on this post.  All opinions are my own.

Color Crush: Coral

Color Crush: Coral

Lately, I’ve found myself having a color crush on coral! It is such a flattering color on all skin tones. I love that coral comes in so many shades! It can lean more pink, orange or red depending upon the fabric. You can shop all of my coral picks in my boutique!
