Knowing in which order to do things is one of the big differences between an amateur and a professional.  For example, would Jeeves* have put Wooster’s shoes on before his pants?  Of course not! Rookie mistake. Order is also important when designing a room.  This week’s Pro Tip is inspired by the folks at Bolt Fabrics, an interior fabric store on South Lamar.

Pro Tip

When redesigning an entire room, start with the fabric.  While there are hundreds of fabric choices, there are thousands of paint colors, so it will be easier to match paint to fabric than vice-versa.  In fact you can usually get paint custom-matched to your fabric if necessary. Plus, this prevents the tragedy of painting a room, then falling in love with a fabric that clashes.  Just trying to save you the  heartache.


Jeeves and Wooster is a British comedy television programme adapted from P.G. Wodehouse’s “Jeeves” stories. It aired on the ITV network from 1990 to 1993, with the last series nominated for a British Academy Television Award for Best Drama Series. It starred Hugh Laurie as Bertie Wooster, a young gentleman with a “distinctive blend of airy nonchalance and refined gormlessness”, and Stephen Fry as Jeeves, his improbably well-informed and talented valet.

Gormlessness, best word ever.
