One of the new lines we picked up is The Finial Touch by Hillary Thomas Designs. The idea behind these beauties was to create “jewelry for your lamps”. They really are just that, most all of them I would totally put on a chain and hang around my neck. The naturally shaped stones come in a variety of hues and can completely revitalize a lamp. Here are some that we have in the shop, check out the clever names they were given!
If there is one trend that I am loving, it is the use of global prints in textiles for the home, fashion and art.
I am not a formal person. I would go so far as to say I live an informal life. This spills over in the designs I create. Someone once said of me: “If you are looking for frou-frou, keep looking,” and they were right. I really love creating comfortable and casual yet beautiful rooms.
One thing I try to squeeze into almost every design is some sort of global element. It keeps the room from looking too matchy or stuffy and creates a layered and collected vibe. And I just love the casual and relaxed feeling these prints lend to a design.
Global textiles have been popular in interiors for some time now. Designers such as John Robshaw have built entire lines around global textiles and have been successful at doing so.
The patterns can appeal to applications in fashion and the home. Pillows, shower curtains and window treatments all look stunning in global textiles.
But the prints lend themselves well to fashion also. From bags to robes to shoes, the application is interesting and mixes well with solids and even other prints. For someone scared of color or wanting to keep a neutral color palate, using a global pattern in a neutral color can really add dimension and interest to a design.
In a recent House Beautiful article, Robshaw said, “Global textiles appeal to so many people — they’re fun, you don’t tire of them and they bring dimension to your life.” My sentiments exactly.
