Trina Turk for Schumacher Fabrics

When it's this kind of cold for this amount of time my brain can't help but wander to warmer spring days. These days are the perfect days in North Carolina to be on the porch, curled up in a comfortable chair, porch swing, or sofa. The partnership of fashion & textile designer Trina Turk with F. Schumacher fabric house has resulted in a collection of vibrant, bold, & punchy indoor/outdoor fabrics!
Samples of these fabulous new prints are available though the showroom upon request!
Enjoy browsing the collection, and feel free to email me with questions!

Here are some shots from the install.

Baby Bedding

{the "ben" collection's retro color combination of vivid orange & cool blue could be fun for a baby boy or girl}
With a fantastic Stanley Young America crib (similar to the one pictured above) on the horizon for the showroom that we saw at last Fall's High Point Furniture Market our attention has turned to how to dress it! We've fallen in love with Serena & Lily's collection of crib bedding. Which collections would you like to see brought into the showroom?

{the "lola" collection combines pink and green for that perfect girlie look}

{the "marlo" collection of crisp white with neutral textures adds a fresh take to any clean lined space}

{the "wren" collection's adorable bird & vine embroidery is an instant classic}

{the "natasha" collection's pair of peacocks perfectly integrates pattern & style to any nursery}

For more bedding collections for any room in your home please visit We'll be happy to special-order any of the pieces you see.

British Invasion.

I have always thought that if I had to move anywhere else in the world that I would fit in the most in England. I loved Paddington & Pooh as a child, pre-Disney days. I sported Hunter wellie boots before they were trendy. My dog has a little bit (we think!) of English Setter in him. I prefer tea to coffee. I get British "humour" in the film & literary world. In fact, I'm reading a pretty great novel right now, and can't wait to see The Kings Speech! I think fascinators are pretty neat. While all eyes will turn to England this spring to see the nuptials of the future King & Miss. Kate, I'm hoping the world will take notice of the British sense of home decor.

I love the classic, crisp, & clean style of Jane Churchill's textiles. They beckon you to relax & move in!

Cowtan & Tout's mix of pattern, texture, & color are no better described than as yummy. Their elegant & classic patterns are updated with a fresh twist of color.

Timelessly elegant best describes the designs of Colefax & Fowler . Their subtle & sophisticated color palate adds a sense of calm to any space.

Farrow & Ball is launching a new collection of colors on February 1st and I couldn't be more excited to see what they might be! A perfect selection of muted & calm paint colors, Farrow & Ball covered walls can be seen in just about any shelter magazine you pick up.
