Sharing Fabric Love

Sharing Fabric Love

Last week I told you about my private battle with fabric addiction. This week I want to share with you my love for my industry. There is an admiration I possess for my fellow designers. I don’t like to copy them, but I do like to study them. I like to see what they are doing and how they are doing it. It can only help me to be better. As I enter into my 40’s I have come to a place where I find it is more beneficial to associate with other designers than to go boldly into the horizon on my own. Can I handle big projects? Of course, but the key to offering my clients the best product is to align myself with other designers. They may know of a certain vendor that has what I am looking for, and I may have an in on a certain cabinet maker that offers a unique craft. I used to be secretive with everything. Then I realized that if you share, people share with you too.

Last week, Simone Alisa of Been There Done That called me to assist her on an install. Time was running out for a grand reveal for one of her clients that wanted their house done, days before their nuptials. Big bang and bigger bang. Simone needed help so I arrived with no expectations or direct instructions as to what I would be doing. As I walked in the house I was once again glamoured. Arabescato Vengli marble floors, palatial ceilings, archways, nooks, chandeliers dripping from every peak. A sensory overload of all things sexy. As I roamed the house I got the feeling of modern glamour meets masculine comfort. A happy marriage if you will. The homeowners were there milling about, paying as much attention as they could with the wedding only two days away on the property. So you can imagine all the things that needed to be just perfect. I jumped right in and started to hang artwork.

As I worked my way from room to room making beds, hanging artwork and other various duties, I found myself drawn to the front keeping room. No this was the parlor. Yes, parlor is a better word for this grand entry room in the south. It was opulent, detailed, unique and stunning. It was the kind of room where you really want to sit on the sofas however you know you don’t dare. The shimmery velvet sofas twinkled and winked at me every time I walked by. The oversized, mirrored, tufted white leather chairs called for someone of the Kingly or Queenly type to reign amongst them. The two story ceiling to floor curtains had a metallic silver thread going through the fabric lending just the right touch of sparkle to kiss the room like stars in the night. A ginormous aqua blue abstract art piece was framed in mirrors and flanked the room as if it were a knight in shining armor. It was perfection. Yes folks, you heard it here, I’m no hater.

Upon further research I found that lo and behold the fabric Simone used was from my fabric home… Lewis and Sheron. Of course it was! Who else would have such amazing textiles? Simone said that Yukhan, downstairs in solids, helped to locate the perfect fabric for her custom sofas and drapery. She admitted she was a royal pain in his back end, but he produced with flying colors, or shall I say sparkling colors? I applaud a job well done and am sure the wedding for the young happy couple was equally as amazaballs. Maybe next time Simone will ask for my help sooner so I can get a slice of some wedding cake!

The fabric used on the sofa is Item ID 1114599, style 02633-T, in color Ecru $45/yard.

The drapery fabric is Item ID 1114066, style Sterling Silver in color Linen/Cotton $30/yard.
