Spotted: Libeco Linens

If you know me away from the showroom, you know that my husband and I love to cook just about everything under the sun. While you'd think I may have a bevy of home decor magazines arriving in my mailbox every month (I do) they are outnumbered 2 to 1 by foodie reads. A longtime favorite has always been Bon Appetit. I was beyond thrilled to find a favorite line of mine in our showroom featured as one of their top kitchen towels...Libeco Home!

Feeling Lucky?

While too much green is never a good thing, I love loving all of these, maybe just not all together.

First Row- Dress, Rug, Pillow, Chest
Second Row - Fabric, Table, Fabric, Shoe

This just in....

Beautiful new candles by Vance Kittara.

A lovely new bedding ensemble from Serena & Lily.

Come & see whats new!

Local Delivery

I would like to take a moment to talk about Spoonflower. I think they are such a great company, they allow people to design their own fabrics and buy them for a very low price, starting at just $18.00 a yard. They also offer different types of fabric as well. Best of all, at least for me, the fabric is all printed in Durham, North Carolina, just a few miles from us. They also offer one fabric that is completly made in The United States.

These are some of my favroites:

1st Row: Fig-a-licious, Evotree number twenty six, White Anemones
2nd Row: Zig-Zag Noir, Rabbit and heart linen, Dog Show
3rd Row: Doves, Nasturtiums, Play Mat
4th Row: Tiny Bow Ribbon, Charted Waters, Christmas Lights

My head will not stop buzzing with ideas for all of these great fabrics!
