FRIDAYfinds! - Springy Fabrics

Well, 
one good thing about January is that
we get a glimpse of the fresh new Spring fabrics
that are coming our way!
And the visit from our rep to our studio this week didn't disappoint.
Take a look...

Bailey and Griffin for Duralee
Isn't this a breath of 
FRESH AIR?
Bright, crisp blues and reds on a cream ground seems familiar in a way, 
but this version is totally NEW with the addition of the graphic stripe.
"The iconic Tree of Life motif meets Moorish mosaic"

Tilton Fenwick for Duralee
But this was the big surprise!
TILTON FENWICK
the young, trendy design firm headed by Anne Foster and Suysel Depedro Cunningham
unveiled their first licensed fabric collection for Duralee.
Known for their distinctive color combos, they aren't afraid to mix it up in unusual ways.
I LOVE the tangerine stripe paired with that random little teal dot.  
And the floral is exuberant...and so Springy!

Check out this colorway of the same pattern.  Can anyone say... 
MAUVE?
For many of us, it's just too soon to see this color again,
but recreated with the addition of rich navy and fuschia, 
it's much more fun than the 80's version, don't you think?


Tilton Fenwick for Duralee
And then there's this one!  
They call it
"GRANNY CHIC"
I call it "Abundance"!
So much you can do with it - beautiful drapes or Romans for sure,
but the real creativity comes in the way you incorporate those stripes.
Cut apart, they would make fabulous borders for the drapes or better yet,
in the gusset of a box pillow!

How fun are these!  Another great floral print, but the real stand-out for me is the
lipstick red upholstery fabric.
I can't wait to get my hands on this...already envision it wrapped on a set of entry hall chairs.


"SENDING YOU SPRING THOUGHTS"

And as always, a reminder to...

"EMBRACE THE JOYS OF GOOD DESIGN!"
