There is nothing I enjoy more than designing with fabrics. Custom upholstery, slipcovers, window treatments, bedding, and pillows are areas of specialization for my design firm.
This particular project above is for a Land Park client. Her house is wonderful and classic. The sofa fabrics are to the far right and are solid mint green and cream and mint leopard. The dining room curtains are the mint and cream zebra linen, and the dining room chair cushions are a textured brick shown at right with a contrasting leopard welt. The lovely Kravet cream and brick geometric linen is for the living room curtains.
A bedroom just begs for blue, the most restful color of all. Because we are working around a butter yellow area rug and a egg yolk yellow quilted headboard, I chose this quilted stripe. My client, another Land Park resident, has a fondness for periwinkle. Okay a slight obsession with it. Collier Cambell floral in the center is our window treatment fabric. The quilted stripe is our bed skirt and bed pillow. The cream leafy upholstery fabric is the bedroom chair and the little periwinkle and cream wiggly stripe is a little kidney pillow that goes with the chair. It really is sweet together.
In a Sacramento living room the fabrics above work beautifully together although the picture doesn’t do them justice. The solid blue texture on the lower left is for the sofa and the cream and brick geometric print is for the its throw pillows. The light blue striped fabric at the top of the picture is the curtains. The yellow floral is a small armchair and the blue fabric with the yellow medallion is for a large armchair. The Indian print at the top left is its pillow.
A tremendous amount of time goes into the planning, estimating, ordering, and creating work orders for the work rooms. The end result is a very personal blend of colors and patterns that ties together all the elements of a room: antiques, carpets, architecture, even geography.
