Editor's Note: Today I am wearing dress by Lafayette "it is a size 6 thank you very much" that I got on a Neimans mid-day dash with my J.Crew heels.
This morning I had two wonderful fabric meetings with Scalamandre and Schumacher. My Scalamandre rep Steve is married to my Schumacher rep Karine. I had know both Steve and Karine for over 20 years and they are two of my favorites! I love the new fabrics they showed me this morning! There was not as many prints as I was hoping for but there was a lot of wonderful upholster and filler fabrics that I was very excited about! Both lines looked great and the trims were incredible!! I am excited to incorporate some of these new fabrics and trims in future jobs and have already pulled some today! Here are some of the highlights of what turned me on in my fabric meetings!
Steve with Scalamandre was up first! This fabric would be incredible on upholster or drapes! I love it!!
Great sassy upholster fabric in many colors!

This wallpaper is not for a person with a budget but it is absolutely incredible! This wallpaper is hand painted and hand combed.
It is a Trompe L'Oeil out of Italy.
Karine also made me rings of trim because they are not booked.
This helps me so much as I usually pick the trim here in my office once I have selected fabrics!
These trims had incredible bling and beading on them that was hand done! Superb!
