Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I am thinking of and missing my dear Irish friend Siobhan today and remembering how perfect she made my trip through Ireland. It's all about green on this chilly, cloudy LA day. Attached are some of my favorite shots from my trip. If you haven't been to Ireland, add it to your list! Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Colorful Living: Katherine Rally Textiles

The husband and wife textile design duo of Katherine Rally definitely caught my eye and their story is even more intriguing. This adorable family is such an inspiring story and their love of travel is definitely reflected in their work. I have included some of my colorful favorites from the collection but be sure to check out their website for many more patterns and colors. Don't these colors and prints make you happy?

Swatch Watch: Carolina George

It has been a busy few weeks here in Los Angeles with lots of design events and this post is from my visit with Nathan Turner at his Leotine Lines store event a couple of weeks ago. While the bedding and linens collections were luxurious, my eye caught these fabric swatches from Carolina George hanging in the back of the store. They are bright and brought an instant smile to my face. So many fantastic color combinations that I want to use! I also included some quick pictures of some of my favorites from the Leontine Linens line.  What color combinations are your favorite?  With Westweek at the Pacific Design Center starting next week, be sure to check back in for more design trends and event details!

This boho style magenta and blue is a favorite
More colors in the boho type print
These marbled fabrics are so unusual and I am dying to use them
Love the yellow and gray colorway that comes in multiple prints
Lots of blues in this line
Magenta and blue. It appears a little red in this photo but is really a perfect magenta

These Leontine Linens photos are from my iPhone and I obviously didn't hold the phone very steady but I wanted to give you a peak into the collection :)
