SHAY GEYER FABRIC COLLECTION | IBB Design

“Arrows” was one of the first patterns that I developed for my new fabric collection. I wanted it to have a painterly effect where the brushstrokes were evident. We’re offering it in 10 colors from neutrals to more vibrant hues. It’s a versatile pattern that could work in a range of aesthetics and rooms depending on the color you choose.

Here we’ve used it in the graystone color and paired it with camel and blush pink as an accent. This scheme lends itself to a vintage vibe and makes for a soft and sweet nursery. The ruffled edge around the pillows offers a frilly, girly feel. The pattern’s scale works for many uses – drapery panels, pillows and even the crib’s bed skirt.

Cut yardage and pillows from the Shay Geyer Collection are available to purchase at IBB Design Fine Furnishings and at ibbdesign.com. Ask one of our designers for a quote for custom drapery and bedding made from these fabrics.

Design with Meaning

I love it when the magic of design comes together for a client and brings out a deep connection between their life & their home. Today, I’m offering you a sneak peek inside a recent installation for one of my clients. It’s a gorgeous home. It’s been such a treat to work with this family. Her husband is a very talented custom builder & they both have impeccable taste. Our collaboration has brought forth some beautiful fresh results. Below are a few photos I snapped with my iPhone as we were installing some of their wallpapers & drapery treatments. The Designer’s Guild paper we chose for their catering kitchen captured my client’s heart & she couldn’t wait to get it installed. The blue hydrangeas in the bold & colorful floral pattern reminded her of her late mother & she knew she would enjoy spending time in there each day.

View from the catering kitchen looking into the laundry room. You see a small glimpse of the fun Martyn Lawrence Bullard paper we used in there. More on that in another post…

Yummy Yellow & Gorgeous Gray!

You may remember that last year’s color of the year was Mimosa, a warm sunny shade of yellow.  At IBB, we love color.  There’s nothing better than seeing neutrals come alive with beautiful pops of color.  Yellow can instantly make a home feel bright & welcoming.

The color combo of yellow paired with the very chic neutral gray is quickly catching on as one of the most sought after color palettes.  Our model team executed the gorgeous duo on a recent project in Houston, led by IBB designer Susan Neff.  Take a peek inside the family room…

The tufted ottoman coffee table is by Aidan Gray.  I love the shelf at the bottom that allows for extra storage for books, magazines, or a basket to hide your remotes.  Pillows with yellow & gray prints make a splash on the sofa & wing chairs.

The neutral stone gray wing back chairs are by Century.   The art over the fireplace may be my absolute favorite part of the room.  It brings so much life & color to the space & really draws your eye up.

We used a lively yellow & gray print from Duralee on the drapery panels which were designed by our drapery designer Gilda Wood.  The breakfast table is also by Aidan Gray.

Sneak Peek Saturday: Designer Nursery

Today’s Sneak Peek Saturday is from IBB designer Shannon Gidney.  Shannon is just weeks away from delivering her first child, a baby girl.  We are all so excited & can’t wait until baby Morgan arrives!  This sweet nursery is layered in creams, chocolate brown & turquoise.  A few antique touches, like a rocker Shannon found, help give the room a vintage feeling.  The drapery fabric is from Kravet.  It’s also used on the top of the ottoman & again in the crib bedding.  There are lots of more fun details to share with you like an amazing hand crafted dresser & fun little touches Shannon created to let her sweet little angel always know how much she is adored.  Congratulations John & Shannon!

Stay tuned for more nursery details & updates on Morgan’s arrival.  You can contact Shannon here.  shannon@ibbdesign.com or 214-618-6630

From Toddler to Teen: Girl’s Room

GirlsSpringRoom

Friday on Good Morning Texas I showcased a fun spring inspired little girl’s room & adjoining play area.  The bright fun color palette was inspired by spring and has the type of design longevity to carry your little sweetie from toddler to early teen years.  Watch the segment here.

We used a fun array of fabrics in lime, purple, hot pink & yellow.  The walls are painted a sunny yellow & we picked up the pattern from the duvet cover & created a border half way up the wall for the room.  Wooden orange flowers adorn the wall above the headboard.  We used classic white painted furniture that allows the bright bold fabrics & patterns to be the showstoppers for the room.
girlsTicTacToe

In the adjoining playroom, we jazzed up white walls by hand painting “tic tac toe” in bold colors up the wall.  We dressed the windows with fun hot orange leopard print drapery panels.

If you’d like to see the room in person, you can venture out to the Horizon Homes model home in Little Elm, Texas.

Terrifically Turquoise

I’ve been geting lots of e-mails about how to use the 2010 color of the year, turquoise, in your home.  So, I thought I would post ideas as I run across them.  I’ll be doing a segment on the fabulous color on GMT this Friday, so make sure & tune in for that as well.

Fabrics:

From light to bright, these shades of the rich color would add a pop of fabulosity to a neutral decor.  Use them for pillows, re-cover a chair, upholster a wall or use them for draperies.
