Creating a Fabric Border

Kristan: Do you know what this actually is? Allison: No, I don't. Kristan: Have you ever seen, like, the underside of a chair where you'd have upholstery webbing where it would be basket woven? That's what this is. You can get it by the yard. It costs, like, nothing. But the nice thing is those hash marks feel just very kind of fresh and nautical and the jute is just such a nice tone to bring in the gray-greens of the floor, yeah. Allison: It looks very expensive. (Laughs) Kristan: It does! I like that! It looks expensive. Brooks: So, how easy and organic of a feeling is that? Allison: Oh, it looks so cool. Brooks: It's sophisticated, but yet it's really fun. Kristan to the Camera: We're going really intense on the walls and then everything else is pretty graphic. Lots of rope, lots of witan, lots of natural elements so we're going to get that vibe more though materials than we are with specific 'Here's an anchor' and 'Here's a boat propeller'. There'll be a couple specific elements but for the most part we're going with texture and lots of it. Kristan: It's like I said and the weenie roller is about the width of this. It's actually exact but it'll push out a little bit. So let's start here, I'll tuck it into this corner, and then you keep going, and I'll kind of chase you. Let me trim off this edge. And creased, once it gets pressed down, it maintains its shape again, you know? Brooks: When it comes to wallpaper, fabrics on walls... Kristan: Well, you know, the thing is this is meant for upholstery. Brooks: Yeah, for me, I would never think to do this. Kristan: And what I love about it is that it's so inexpensive but it just has such a good graphic look. (Indicates wall) I think we have to go a bit heavier. Not much so that it's juicy. I feel like this is already making the room warmer just having a natural element in here. Brooks: To me it's like playful like a boy's room should be without being over the top. Kristan: And considering we started minutes ago, one wall down and three more to go. Not bad, right?
