Some people like shoes, some people like cars, some people like fancy jewelry… I got a thing for textiles, of course!!! And here is a gorgeous pile of textiles finding their way to me in the next few weeks, some for the Otomi Home Shop. Stay tuned and let me know if you are interested in any of these as pillows!!! Happy weekend everyone and here are some fun links from around the web this week…

As y’all know, I’m on a trip in Maui… and all of these palm trees and the lush landscape here has me thinking of one of my all time favorite Peter Dunham Textiles – The Fig Leaf. This beautiful print is graphic and organic at the same time and instanty brightens any room its in. I love how it can be used in so many different ways. Here are ten unique ways to use this the Peter Dunham Fig Leaf… which is your favorite? Mine is #1 above… Fig Leaf Drapes in a gorgeous bathroom with a stand-alone tub.
But I also love this breakfast nook chalk full of Peter Dunham’s patterns…(source)
Or this pool house with an upholstered chair…(source)
Or these drapes in a living room with pale aqua walls…(source)
This textile also comes in an outdoor version and looks awesome on this patio…(source)
Hey! We survived the plan ride to Maui with a toddler in tow. Although we wiped off every surface imaginable on the airplane, Jack still managed to put anything and everything into his mouth (the back of the seat basket, the tray table, the seat belt!) You name it, he ate it. So I’m keeping my fingers crossed that he’s just going to be fortified from all those germs and not actually get a cold of flu. We’re here and that all that counts.
Sorry for a little delay in getting this post out but we were at the beach and I forgot – so it goes, I’m officially on island time. Here are a few reads from around the web this week… xo
Today, I’m leaving on a vacation to Maui – yes, I am a *little bit* excited about this trip! I love coastal style and interior design and today I wanted to share with you my ALL TIME favorite beach bungalow. This was featured in Domino a while back & I still love it.
This beauty was designed by Anna Burke in Palm Beach. And its the perfect mix of casual luxury. I am obsessed with this bungalow’s living room in particular… all the white, with pops of blue, perfectly selected greenery, and beautiful natural accents. Perfect if you ask me.
