Fashion Friday: Prints Charming

So many of you (including me) have a major love affair with Quadrille’s fabric. Particularly the China Seas line. If you need a reminder of why then here you go…

So it was of no surprise to me that when perusing Net-A-Porter I spotted some Philip Lim pants that looks almost identical to China Seas’s Lysette Reverse print!  Not you can wear the famous patterns on your body and not just let your furniture have all the fun!

And since we’re on the topic of coral and navy, here’s alittle sneak peek of my rental’s living room which will soon be featured on The Everygirl!

The Look for Less: Otomi Fabric

There are some patterns that I shall never tire of: Suzani, ikat and Otomi prints.  However, the price for actual handmade versions of any of these fabrics is typically VERY high. Take Otomi for example, a small throw can set you back almost $300. And if you want to make a headboard or upholster in it you’ll need multiples of them!

What I found on Spoonflower is a print exactly like the Otomi by textile designer Samarra Khaja and it’s way cheaper (you can pick the kind of fabric it’s printed on too!) So great for duvet covers, upholstering chairs and my favorite idea- custom nursery bedding!

The smaller scale…


Mad for Plaid.

There is something just so comfy, cozy and comforting about plaid.  It’s been embraced by preppies, hipster and country folk alike- I can’t think of another pattern that appeals to so many! Of course, in the fall plaid is particularly charming and embracing- it’s wooly warmth making you think of picking apples and cuddling by a fire.  In rooms it can be used in so many ways (big and small)- here’s an homage to plaid….

This old school room makes me want to curl up with a good book and some tea…

awwwww.

mixing a masculine plaid and feminine toile keeps things interesting…

Fierce plaid.

Modern plaid!

Country vs. city plaid

A monochromatic and light plaid looks ethereal not heavy!

Will ALWAYS love boys in plaid. Always.

Traditional luxury…

His and hers … the “his” is particularly lovely, no? :)
