Finding the perfect fabric…and good luck.

During the holidays I was able to see so many of my favorite people! It was the best. Thanks Gayla for hosting me at your fabulous ranch retreat. We have been friends for 10 years and together we have helped each other buy, build, and furnish five homes between us. Our shopping adventures have taken us from Brimfield Massachusetts, to High Point North Carolina, and to New York City, just to name a few. When we get together we love to talk design. I have learned so much from her over the years.

Galya mentioned that she was on the hunt for a certain fabric.

Something that would blend her brown leather sofas with the sea salt blues and greens in the rest of her home.

The next day my first issue of Coastal Living showed up and inside I saw this fabulous home designed by Cathy Chapman of Houston Texas.

I love the fabrics that she used which…blend the brown sofas into the sea salt blues and greens in the home.

I knew Galya would love them but I also thought you might too.

Unfortunately the sources were a little bit vague so I am still tracking down the actual fabrics. But having a picture makes it so much easier. Happy New Year Gayla! It was great to see you.
