FRIDAYfinds! - Food for thought


 I'm once again reminded of the cross-over in design disciplines.
DONNA KARAN
said it so well in this quote I found in REAL SIMPLE magazine.

"WHETHER IT'S FASHION OR INTERIOR DESIGN, 
WE ARE ALWAYS STRIVING FOR THE
PERFECT BALANCE BETWEEN FORM AND FUNCTION"


"EMBRACE THE JOYS OF GOOD DESIGN!"

FRIDAYfinds! - Red Hot Spring Fabrics and Papers

 Dana Gibson for Stroheim
Spring is here, for sure, when I get to see the new,
HOT OFF THE PRESS
fabrics and papers from my reps.

And these fabulous new intros from
DANA GIBSON 
 are destine to be top sellers in my book!

Why?  It's the perfect formula.
CLASSIC REFINEMENT
+
FRESH COLOR

You know what a fan I am of pink and orange! This "Canton" fabric
will be going on my Pinterest board for sure.  Check it out if you like 
this color combo, too.

Dana Gibson for Stroheim - Trot in Persimmon Brown
Isn't this adorable???
With a name like "Trot", what's not to love?
And the leopard background is the fitting classical tie-in, don't you think?



Dana Gibson for Stroheim
Even the coodinate fabrics have a definite "attitude" to them.
In any colorway, the applications are endless...
Baby's room, anyone?  How sophisticated would that be!



 Dana Gibson for Stroheim
You saw it here first!  
A sneak peak at the fabulous wallpaper book
we will be getting soon.
Look at how that fabric updates the Louis XVI settee in the photo.
Set against the cherry red paper, it jumps off the page!
