NEW From Clarke & Clarke

We just received new fabric sample books from Clarke & Clarke.

WOW.  The colors are bold, the styles are fresh and fun.

No plain old boring beige here.

Hello happiness.

Love this chair.

Today's lesson - go for it.

Don't be shy. Don't be timid. Look what can happen if you go for it. You get a beautiful chair like this. Even the dudes will like it.

I saw these two chairs in the Brunschwig & Fils showroom yesterday. 

I just love this big print. It makes me happy. You can't help but smile when you see them. And don't we all need something in our home that makes us smile?

The tufting, big flower print and nail heads are perfect for this style of chair. I want to sit and have a glass of wine with a friend, or read a sappy chic book.

Say yes to something fun and wonderful.

Last spring we participated in the Marin Showcase House with Kimberly Rider. It was a great experience. A lot of hard work for Kimberly. We got the easy part - making beautiful pieces for her room.

We (okay, not really "we") Kris volunteered to man the room on several weekends. It was a great opportunity to meet people as they came through and sell our design and and services.

The room we had was the game room. It was on the third floor of the showcase house. Two other rooms were also up there. One was a really cool room for teenagers and the other was a guest suite.

The guest suite was designed by Cathleen Prisco Gouvei. Her room drews oohs and aaaahs from people all day long. I heard her repeat her schpiel dozens of times. So when people came up I told her story about the paint on the walls, the floor installation, the bathroom, and the Nana Wall system.

When I heard that she was participating in the SF Decorator Showcase house I was expecting something over the top just like in Marin. And I do believe she has delivered again.

This time she has a king size bed suspended from the ceiling.

Looks like we're going to have to make a little visit to San Francisco to see this house.

Anyone want to tag along?
