Friday Finds :: Ronda Carman Fine Fabrics

I’ve admired Ronda Carman for along time. Her blog, All the Best was one of the first design blogs I gravitated to when I started blogging six years ago. Last year, Ronda set sail on a new venture in textiles. While living in Scotland for eight years, she fell in love with the century-old textile mills of the region and found that American interiors designers had little access to these classic fabrics. As a result, Ronda Carman Fine Fabrics was born and offers traditional Scottish textiles with a modern twist. Her to the trade collection features over 350 wools and cashmeres in a variety of patterns including plaids, checks and pinstripes. But, what makes the textiles so special are the colorways Ronda’s selected. Icy blues, hot pinks and grey-blues are just some of the gorgeous colors that give these timeless patterns a fresh look. Love this!

I’ve rounded up just a few of my favorites today.

San Francisco Decorator Showcase :: Master Bathroom

Today I’m sharing another fabulous interior design from the 2015 San Francisco Decorator Showcase (open now through May 25th). Located just of the main staircase on the second floor, you’ll find the “En Vogue Salon” designed by Tineke Triggs and her team at Artistic Designs for Living. Inspired by the July 1966 Vogue Magazine cover, the master bathroom and make-up salon are nothing by glamorous.

Front and center, Triggs hangs a commissioned photograph by Danielle Mourning (courtesy of Stephanie Breitbard Fine Arts). Just below is an oval freestanding tub that sits on a custom stone floor (designed by Triggs) and is beautifully framed by dip-dyed linen ombre curtains. The hand formed brass and steel Palermo chandelier which hand just above the tub is an absolute head turner! Adjacent to the tub is a custom double vanity featuring period details such as the geometric hand-painted gold applique coupled with brass and lucite hardware. A luxurious chaise covered in an emerald velvet is a nod to the striking eye color found in the ’66 Vogue cover. A super groovy black and white piece hangs just above the sitting area. The shower with feathered herringbone marble tile bridges the master bathroom and dressing room space. The make-up salon walls are strikingly wrapped in Vogue Magazine covers (actually a fabric by James Malone Fabrics). Its the perfect space to prepare for an evening out!

Friday Find :: Designer Outdoor Fabrics

outdoor living // california style

With warmer weather fast approaching our patios, decks and porches are going to get a lot more use. Here is California, our outside living is an extension of what’s inside and therefore its critical that the design flows from one space to another. In the past, outdoor fabrics have been ho-hum and frankly there hasn’t been much selection. Over the past few years however, I’ve seen a huge uptick in beautiful designer outdoor fabrics. And these chic, yet durable fabrics are great for indoors too. For a client with young children and pets, I recently installed several chairs, window cushions and pillows in outdoor fabrics.

Today I’ve rounded up a few of my current faves in designer outdoor fabrics:

classic clue & white decor // mark d. sikes

This elegant blue and white table vignette for Legends of la Cienega 2014 designed by Mark D. Sikes struck a cord with me. I’m drawn to the layered patterns, chinoiserie touches and brilliant blues. The timeless color palette is on trend again and here are a few home décor favorites I’ve spotted recently:
