Here are a few tips on how to incorporate English Prints into your home:


Colours can be both bright and muted. Modern English style in interior design is distinguished by a variety of romantic patterns and floral prints. Hues are pulled from nature, including the pinks and yellows from roses in an English garden or the greens from the rolling hills of the countryside and, features three or four colors and should make the room appear cozy.


There is an abundance of textiles available which you can view in-store at Constantia Fabrics. English Prints are suitable for many uses such as upholstering your sofa, throw pillows, window curtains and even table skirts which will make any room look harmonious.

Soft florals and damask are the most popular materials. It is interesting that all of them can be combined in one room and large prints are usually combined with small ones but it all depends on your interior style.


English prints can be busy, but should not be overwhelming. Large prints will be paired with smaller prints, such as gingham.

Using similar colour palettes in the patterns keep this from becoming overwhelming. Slipcovers for sofas and chairs are an easy way to bring English print patterns and colour into the room without buying new furniture.
