“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 Ask one of our designers for a quote for custom drapery and bedding made from these fabrics.

Posh Pillows

Remember, my 2 P’s tip to instantly update your home?  Paint & Pillows!  Well, I just have to share this new pillow line I came across last week at the Dallas Market.  It’s called Square Feathers.  The hand sewn works of art are made from high quality linen, jute & fleece.  Ron’s signature design is the unexpected combination of jute & fleece.

I had the pleasure of chatting with the very charming creative force behind these fabulous pillows, Ron McIntyre.  What’s even better is that he’s a Texas boy ~ located in the heart of Austin, Texas.  I put him on the spot & had him record a quick video tip for using his pillows for all of my readers to enjoy.

Ron even has an amazing coffee table book out full of eye candy for the pillow lovers.  You can get it on Amazon here.  His collection is vibrant & very chic.  He has even implemented the ever so popular bird trend into a few of his designs.  Take a look at some of his marvelous masterpieces & let me know what you think.

Vibrant Rose bud pillows from Square Feathers liven up a white chaise lounge.  Notice Ron’s fab coffee table book at the edge of the chaise.

One of the most popular pillows from Square Feathers is their monogram pillow shown in the upper left of the photo.  The collection also offers designs featuring kid friendly designs incorporating puppies & fun frogs.  This wall also showcases some of my favs including the floral & cherry blossom designs.

My guest bedroom at my house has a Parisian flair, so I know exactly where I could use the Eiffel Tower pillow.  The pillow next to it reminds me of Audrey Hepburn & who doesn’t love her???  The bottom shelf features the Rose Bud pillow in a cool blue with contrasting neutral khaki rose buds.  Switch out the rose buds to one of the 15 colors offered to compliment any color palette!

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.


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.

5 things to make you feel cozy

Cooler temperatures means it’s time to get cozy.  Snuggle up & take a look at a few things to warm up your home…

1) faux mink fur pillow in chocolate brown adds warmth & luxury to this gorgeous chair by Taylor King

2) any shade of orange (think harvest pumpkin) The plush orange chenille and deep seat on this chair make it extra cozy!

3) a well done fireplace mantle
We’ve kept it simple here.  With the cedar ceiling beams & fabulous stone fireplace in this family room, you don’t want to over do it on the accessories.
