It's funny how a certain pattern on fabric or wallpaper can evoke emotion.  Sometimes it reminds us of people or favorite rooms from the past.  Other times a print can bring us toward a new design direction in our homes, or simply be a springboard for a different color scheme.  We are in love with this new Ralph Lauren fabric, a great floral with a vintagy feeling (from Calico Corners) which soon will be covering the seat cushion of this comfy natural wicker chair in the shop.  Pic update on the chair when it's done!


Fabric can do so much to change out the look of a sofa, bed or table.  The possibilities are endless and the great new fabric designs are fresh and bright for spring.  Whether it's organic botanicals (my own personal favorite right now), stripes, vintageflorals or retro inspired designs, there are tons of choices out there to give something in your home a new look.

This really beautiful bedding line was done by textile artist turned designer Kim Parker.  Her paintings alone are so inspiring, and now they have been adapted to everything from fabric and rugs to linens and tabletop in her Kim Parker Home line. In her book Kim Parker Home: A Life in Design, Parker shares her creative inspirations and techniques for combining flea market finds with her fabric designs.  The stunning photographs in this one are worth the look!  

Great graphic and color on this pillow . . . more in the shop now. 

Coming this week to the shop . . .  a group of new handmade vintage pillows in whites and creams from a pillowmaker in MA.  Stop in before they're gone!

Have a creative day!
