Preview of Fall Textile Collections!
This week, I got an inside look at three fabulous new textile lines, set to be launched this fall. And guess what…I’m sharing my fave finds with all of you! Donghia, Sahco, and Armani/Casa, all known for chic textiles, each demonstrated that inspiration truly does come from unique places. (That's one of my mantras!) In the case of Donghia’s “Moondance” collection, the source of inspiration was especially spectacular…music! The textiles are a nod to musical legend Van Morrison, so they have a certain romantic, celestial appeal. I found myself drawn to the textile of the “Wild Night” textile. It almost shimmers, don’t you think? Asian influences! Armani/Casa is also such a great example of how the worlds of fashion and home decor are connected. Armani is known for fashion, but look how well his aesthetic translates to decor! I'm always looking back to my fashion roots for inspiration in the home. The geometric “Fukui” textile is shown on this chic armchair, and I just loved the elegant design of the Fredonia fabric. They’d make a nice pairing, wouldn’t they?
