Editor's Note: Today I am wearing a blouse from Banana Republic, skirt from Anthropology, and flats from J.Crew.
Happy Friday! The weekend is almost here. This will be my first weekend without moving or putting away what I moved since mid June. I am SO EXCITED! I am going to see Dunkirk on Saturday. It has received such wonderful reviews I am really excited. So happy it is showing at the Movie Tavern so I can have my wine. Makes the movies mighty fine! Today I am featuring an article that I found in Flower Magazine on Tricia Guild. Tricia is the founder and owner of Designers Guild fabrics and wallpapers. I have loved this line for some time and have used it in my design projects. Reading about Tricia is fascinating--how her love of flowers comes from her time spent gardening with her grandfather--to being awarded the Order Of The British Empire, OBE, in 2008. This OBE award allowed her to reproduce fabrics and wallpapers for Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle. How cool is that! One talented lady! Have a bomb diggity kind of weekend!
Tricia Guild pictured here next to a settee upholstered in her over-scaled rose print named Sofienberg. The wallpaper was influenced by 18th century painted wall panels and is called Bergius. Designers Guild is known for its over sized patterns especially featuring flowers!
Another gorgeous floral named Kaori from the 2014 collection. Tricia said in the article that some people have a hard time using lime green in their room. When you think about a bowl of green apples--it all of a sudden doesn't sound so strange!
What an impressive wall full of the Designers Guild line. The whole line is full of color--brings pure happiness to a room!
Beautiful wallpaper called Yuzen. I love the tone on tone subtle stripe in the background--how it fades in and out.
Love the fact that Tricia considers the garden just another room in the house that happens to be outside. How romantic is the stripe in blues, purples, and lime green?! I would like to go to a dinner party here!
A bit more rustic version of Designers Guild fabrics. The ground cloth gives it a much more casual feeling--perfect for this setting!

Dinner last night was pork chop with a side of steamed zucchini. Delicious!
Love this 70's Lite Rock station on Pandora. It always plays old songs that I have forgotten about.
