After I hit publish on my last post, a wave of inspiration took over me. I reached deep into the dark, cobwebby depths of my closet to the tiny crevice of non-wrinkled, non-stained clothes; I went beyond a shower to the land of personal care involving make up and blow dry. Then, I fled from a teething toddler and another independent toddler, leaving them behind with their “vacationing” daddy. I sped on up to the land of ikats, silks, cottons and brocade: the san francisco design center. A spot where people watching is almost as good as the textiles themselves. An oasis from the t-shirt wearing techies, where we discuss the ancient art of textiles, jotting down patterns with a pleasingly archaic pencil.
A woman on a mission, knowing the family left behind had an expiration time and that I would miss them dearly, I hit up my favorite spots: schumacher, quadrille, lewis and sharon and madeline weinrib.
And now I present to you: a decorator confused. The land of options:
My ode to Josie’s outfit with Peter Dunham’s Starstruck as the main fabric, pillows in coral piped in a rope like piping.
My blue, cream and brown moment with Quadrille New Batik as the big cushion fabric and then ikat and stiped as pillows.
My blue, cream and poppy moment with Madeline Weinrib as the big cushion fabric and then striped and poppy welt as accent.
I took all the scheme photos outside so we could see how things read outside in the bright daylight sun. I believe we have actually decided on a fabric. I’ll let you know as soon as it’s ordered.
