Kelly Wearstler for Groundworks

01
FEBRUARY
2013

Most of us up here are pretty big fans of (okay, some of us are completely obsessed with!) the one and only Kelly Wearstler. Her style is absolutely magnetic, both in fashion and interiors!

We have been so in love with the newest collection she did with Groundwords for Lee Jofa that we had to share some highlights!

SummerHouse loves Kelly Wearstler

A little about this collection:

“In her second collaboration with Groundworks, Kelly Wearstler has created a vibrant and inspiring fabric collection that combines her love for natural materials, graphic patterns and unique colors. The collection features organic and textural designs that are quietly elegant, as well as the bold prints that have become a Kelly Wearstler signature.”

We love her go-to color palette. It’s always really different, but it just plain works. That’s why she’s so good!

2012

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you! We love this holiday because someone usually brings cupcakes and/or candy, someone usually brings elementary school Valentine’s cards (which take us back to the good ol’ days), and someone usually gets flowers from a sweet boyfriend/husband (which we all can enjoy!)

Another reason we love this holiday is because we’re reminded of just how beautiful and versatile pinks, corals, and reds can be! We picked a few Schumacher fabrics (from many collections) showcasing just why we love the colors of love.

{ happy valentine’s day }-2 { happy valentine’s day }-3 { happy valentine’s day }-6 { happy valentine’s day }-1 { happy valentine’s day }-5 { happy valentine’s day }-4 { happy valentine’s day }-7 { happy valentine’s day }-8

Enjoy today!
Tell someone you love them!
And do something nice for someone!
That’s a sure-fire way to make your Valentine’s Day the best possible! Oh, and when you get blue, just re-visit this post for a little happiness and warmth from these pretty fabrics! 🙂

New from the Schu…

With Spring just around the corner, (well, sort of…) thoughts of going to the beach, taking trips, and spending time outdoors don’t seem quite so intangible! The nice weather in our area this weekend really gave some of us a case of Spring Fever!

To go along perfectly with the upcoming season change is this new collection of fabrics from Schumacher. The collection is named Cote d’Azur, which just sounds beautiful doesn’t it?! These indoor/outdoor fabrics were inspired by the sand and surf of the French Riviera. They definitely make us wish for a big yacht, some big sunglasses, and a nice Mediterranean cocktail… Ahhh….

Let’s take a look at a few of the collection’s highlights…

San Remo Fret, Jet
Monaco Velvet, Java
Antibes Chevron, Jet
Tortola Marine
Cap Ferrat Weave, Navy
Cannes Awning Stripe, Java

Remember, indoor/outdoor fabrics can easily be cleaned with soap and water! These fabrics would be perfect for families with lots of children (or messy adults!), beach homes, outdoor upholstered furniture… The possibilities are almost endless!

We could really get used to relaxing in a space like this...

View the entire Schumacher collection here. And if you have questions or would like a sample of anything you see, give us a call! We’ll get you fixed up!
