why do i love this ridiculous pic?
hi dear friends, i’m sorry to have dropped out of sight for a while. it was a true case of overload, burnout and over stimulation all at once. i’m not the multi-tasker i used to be, but at least now when it’s time rest, i go down and stay down. there is of course, always so much going on, trips in the works, clients, unpacking, collaborating…sometimes it’s a little overwhelming and i need to just space out.
i was starting to feel like the house above! now a little more like it below. (not sure which is before and after). anyway, this post is for no other reason than to just say hi. it feels like years since i’ve been able to blog and visit and just hang out with you.
i was with my bud liz looking up a web designer, bill livingston. i started finding these pics shown here was saving them on my desktop. creating more stuff to do and why? there are so many images on my hard drive that i can’t even go there to look through them these days!
but well, they got me here today, so guess there was a reason after all. i thank you guys for being here and promise to get back in the game, i’m feeling re-charged already just being here. hope you have a beautiful, mellow, summer sunday!
hi again everyone! well the show’s officially over. what a grueling 10 days! shows are so intense. anyway i wanted to upload a few more pics of the show cause i have a feeling tomorrow will bring something completely new and these will seem foreign and far away. i promise to link the sites but i have so much info and literature that doing it all tonite is too much for lil ol me. i’ll do what i can…
the booth below was incredible. design legacy
i always loved the script on fabric. carolyn quartermaine does a gorgeous line. i hope to be carrying it by the yard soon.
ooh their details…they’re iron clad for retailers only and are magnifique!
seda (you can make your own private label candles)
ok well that will do it for tonite. funny how you’re so involved in something then it’s over in a flash. i have a couple days to enjoy ny so i’ll keep you posted on what’s fun in the sun! bonne nuit!
hey everybody! i’m gonna get in trouble if i don’t come back and fatten the credits on this post up tomorrow. but tonite it’s all i can do just to post it. four days into the show and still one more tomorrow. it’s a real portal to infinity. i skimmed the surface but still hit each area and have about an hour tomorrow to fill in what i missed. in the meantime, just wanted to share some of the eye candy that’s had me running all over this joint the past few days. above and below is kumi kookoon. she makes indescribably gorgeous pillows, blankets and now nighties. below you can see her lusciousness in sets for gossip girl. the first is a pajama party and the second is blair’s dorm room.
i could have shot her booth all day, each piece was more delicate and beautiful than the last.
her middle name is detail.
i started at the pier. shine is the very first booth you see. i liked their vibe this year. it was fun and bold. they used silk charmeuse too but tye dyed it. it was super soft and vibrant.
and since i’m into turquoise this sofa was hard to resist.
and i’ll add more pics to this post later but wanted to get it underway cause as i’m going thru them, it’s infinite. the anakasa booth was mind boggling, both with the quality of their fabrics but also the quantity. this is the epitome of something for everyone.
ohh their smocking! it was one of the things i’m always drawn to.
oh and their loro piana cashmere, hand embroidered blankets were divine.
of course i was happy to find my girls from avignon! this year they painted linen and hung it around their booth again but this time, they’re printing and selling the panel below.
i love that they embroidered their logo
and everything they do is simple but so pretty.
ok this is where i’m trailing off, i have to go thru my bag and put the names with the pics but it’s getting late and i still have to get up early cause it’s over tomorrow (i thought it was today)!
so that gives me some time to get it together tomorrow and the rest of the nite to rest. i hope if these are your booths you don’t get mad. i just love your stuff and promise to link a demain.
if you could have seen this booth!
and i got seduced by more smocking, in silk charmeuse at that at afk, this time in a baby set. guess i’m getting pretty predictable! well there’s lots more and it’s on the way, good night for now and sweet dreams!
