Editor's Note: Today I am wearing dress shorts from H&M ---shopped in Riley's closet this morning (these dress shorts did not make cut one of going to New York and unless they make cut two they might become mine), Silk blouse by J. Crew and heels by Coach.
This has turned out to be a very busy week of meeting with vendors. My meeting today was with Jana who reps Lee Jofa/Brunschwig & Fils/Kravet/Ralph Lauren. She was especially showing me the new fabrics by Aerin Lauder who is Estee Lauder's granddaughter, Brunschwig & Fils and Creations Metaphores. The Aerin Lauder new edition were all so elegant and stunning as is her whole line! Brunschwig & Fils is one of my favorite lines and has been for years and the new fabrics were stunning! Creations Metaphores is a new edition to the Lee Jofa showroom and had some elegant fabrics. Even though none of the new fabrics fit into a job that I am working on at the current moment. It is always nice to know what is out there and what is fresh and new. I never repeat fabrics in my design works so I am always looking for new additions to make all my clients jobs fresh and special.
This is a mixture of Aerin Lauder with a stripe and floral from Ralph Lauren. Color palette is soft and inviting!
This print was my favorite fabric that I saw today. I can't wait to use it on a job! And I love the green woven in the corner.
Fabrics by Aerin Lauder
These are all my Aerin Lauder. The printed woven that comes in different colors would make the most exquisite sofa or chairs and the wallpapers on the right would be so elegant in a Dining Room or Entry Hall.
Here is another combination from Aerin and Ralph Lauren and they look ohhh so pretty together!
Love this print!
This tiger print is just incredible! I can see it as drapes or even a very "conversation piece sofa."
Gorgeous prints with an Asian feel.
The velvet with the mountains is sumptuous.
Loved these velvets and the fabric being held up had beading going down the center. It was incredible!
Beautiful texture velvet!
Fabrics from Creations Metaphores so soft and pretty especially the sheer on the top!
This would be such elegant draperies!
Me with my rep Jana. She does a fabulous job!
Here I am with my oh so fabulous assistant Michelle holding up two of the samples.
Michelle and I have a great time everyday making the world beautiful!
I am going to start adding to my blog a favorite picture that I found on Instagram every day. This picture of this gorgeous bride is incredible!!
Once again love these quotes! I have become quite the quote collector. Words to live by!
Last night for dinner I had salmon seasoned with lemon, butter, and slap yo mama seasoning served with half a sweet potato topped with butter and Swiss cheese. I don't normally mention it but the wine I drink every night is from Becker Vineyard in Texas--it is their chardonnay.
I love it!!
If you haven't heard this song from Jennifer Lopez it will make you get out of your chair and do a jig! Happy Friday Everyone!
