Bold horizontal stripes are everywhere these days. I get inquires for horizontal striped curtains quite often. Surprisingly it is very hard to find a bold striped fabric, so many of these stripes you see have been made by alternating two different fabrics. I just finished a set using two different colors of linen for a client. Besides the fact these need to be pressed, they turned out great.
I am sorry that I have been slacking on the blog lately. I hope to get back into it with something exciting soon. All of the stores are starting to release their new Spring lines. West Elm is one of my favorite stores and here is a selection of some of my favorite new products from West Elm.

TGIF tomorrow! Enjoy your long weekend!
Schumacher announced their newest line, Côte d’Azur. It is an indoor/ outdoor collection. The featured photos are all taken pool side and it looks fabulous. I love the scale on the stripe and chevron. See the whole collection here. Happy Weekend!
The kids went back to school today and the Christmas has been put away. I always seem to get “after holiday blues” so I am just now finally getting back into the swing of things. While I was in CA I got two emails from some nursery bedding clients. I always love to see the bedding in action. First up is this absolutely adorable nursery for baby Corbin. How darling is this room, couple, and baby! It was a pleasure to be part of this nursery. With the help of her idea, I did all of the crib bedding as well as the ottoman cover. I am in love with the bench and the mobile she used too!

It really is fun when decisions get made. We have narrowed down the drapery fabric for a master bedroom that I have been helping with. We will be using this beautiful Amboise Linen fabric by Schumacher. It is seriously fabulous.
And we will be doing some inverted pleat drapes like the picture below along with a few roman shades to finish off window treatments.
