Designer Tip Tuesday: Danielle Oakey Interiors

For todays "Designer Tip Tuesday" we are so lucky to have Danielle! She is so talented and I absolutely love her blog. She is always posting great ideas and projects. 

Hi, I am Danielle from Danielle Oakey Interiors.
I am thrilled that Kayla asked me to participate in this series.
I love hearing other designers tips and always seem to learn something new!

Now onto my designer tip...

Invest in designer fabrics.

Designer fabrics can be expensive but are always worth it.
If you are running on a tight budget, make the fabric count by using it in a dramatic way.
This room is a perfect example of how a small amount of fabric can make a big impact.

You can also pair less expensive fabrics with designer fabrics.

What would this room be without the drapery?
They make the space.

Now go shopping for some fantastic fabrics.
