it’s all in the details

hey guys, happy friday! i’m blogging in the middle of the day, woo hoo! my goal is to tackle the rest of the show in paris. there was so much, mon dieu!

today i’m going thru the textiles. here’s a recap of some of my favorite things in the bedding department~

for me it was a study in simplicity and all the details that go into making it seem so simple.

smocking, hand stitching, classic design, natural fibers and mixing materials were what i seemed to gravitate to.

uneven smocking,  tiny details

one side cotton velvet and the other linen

classic stitches, hand sewn and raw edges

linen comforter with hand-stitched  silk velvet edge

silk and linen comforters

hand stitched cotton toile quilt

ditzy french florals

exacting hand sewn edges on linen scallops

stiff raw linen scallops

italian hand knotted fringe

supersoft linen

linen by the yard

vintage linen was available too

unfinished edges on raw linen ruffles

linen curtains

simple engineering

bright colors, ancient patterns from tibet, the himalayas, polynesian islands and india.

these blankets were one of a kind and and i kept finding them throughout the show. i’m only realizing now how much i wanted so many of them!

vintage fabrics

happy, deconsttucted and playful

and the details were simply marvelous! ok well i better get going, more soon! have a great weekend!

    Hi, Claudia. Love the brightly colored quilts and linen with velvet. The simple unlined Roman shade drape is pretty, but those can’t be sold in the US because they don’t meet cord safety standards: http://www.windowcoverings.org/ Just thought I’d mention it since you show the cording on the back of the shade, and October is National Window Coverings Safety month in the U.S.

    The antique and vintage linens are my favorite. It always amazes me how someone took such good care of these fabrics and that they are still presentable today. You’ve got to love people like that.
