Fabric World

I am on the hunt for fab fabs for my new client in Santa Monica. Yesterday I perused around the Pacific Design Center in Sunny Boiling Hell Style Heat West Hollywood and also made my rounds to a few of my favorite haunts. Here is a couple of sneaky peaks of my day yesterday...Oh and BTW I walked into the NOW famed Hollywood at Home store and no shit Kathryn M Ireland stormed in like a whiz collecting fabrics. I have seen her out in about in this here little town tons of times...this design community is a 6 degrees a separation type of place.... but it was just me, my design assistant extraordinaire, and K Ire. Cool. Kinda.









Spotted this little number from Raoul Textiles.

Then I came home after pillaging every fabric in the entire design center and laid it all out in my living room. 


Stella the Cat made herself comfortable


I rolled around in it like Demi Moore did with money in Indecent Proposal, except I am less hot and this was fabric not 100 dollar bills...which was weird.
Then I realized it was about midnight and I needed to start pulling my serious collection of fabric porn together instead of just making piles by color and chaos. 




Then I woke up this morning and am going to start all over again.... I LOVE MY JOB!!!!

You can hire me to get fabric and roll around in it.

  6. I love all that fabric and would've rolled in it as well. I spot a few of my faves. And how cool to live where you do and get to "bump into" K. Ireland and co.

  7. Can I roll around in the pile with you? Haha.....fabric is always my go to inspiration for every design I do, my jumping off point so to speak, and I like to covet each memo sample like tiny works of art (sometimes framing them, like discussed by Lonny yesterday http://blog.lonnymag.com/watercolor-wednesdays-decorating-with-scarves)
