new patterns

By now I’m sure you’ve heard that the New York design firm, Tilton Fenwick, has released their new fabric line for Duralee.  Check it out here.  I’ve been wrestling with finding a fabric for our bay house that encompasses our main colors, and a few of these look  interesting.  Of course this means I would have to actually commit to a color scheme – been avoiding that altogether.  I might be my worst client.  If I ever do implement my previously noted paint colors, I would love to skirt a table in the hallway.  For me, skirted tables are up there with fine champagne, riding my horse, and date nights.  Not necessarily in that order ; )  

I’m mostly drawn to plain skirted tables or ones with a simple trim, as my pinterest board reveals, but love the idea of incorporating a pattern to unify our colors.  Would much rather have my pattern on an easily changed table skirt versus an upholstered piece.  Sidenote:  I do love this adorable linen skirted table with tab and button detailing – found a tutorial post showing how to make one similar on your own.


Back to Tilton Fenwick for Duralee.  This line might be the answer for my color-commitment challenge.  I’m waiting for the samples to arrive, but so far these have caught me eye…

1.  Tally in cactus. A traditional statement all the way.   This woven stripe pulls together greens and blues – right now I’m at a complete stand off on which direction to go – blues or greens.  Love both.  This could be perfect for a hallway bench in lieu of a table.


2.  Armstrong in sea green.  In lovvvvvve.  So preppy fab.  You can spy a sneak peek of this fabric on a chair and wall from Tilton Fenwick’s Traditional Home shoot on their IG right here.  


Also like it in cactus.


3.  Paboreal is fun.  But would our hens feel slightly upstaged?   


4.  Olsen is gorgeous. What a stately stripe – that tiny little detail does it for me.


5.  Love the light-hearted vibe of Miraval.  How adorable would this be as an accent pillow on a little girl’s bed?


I’m checking out early this week but will be back Monday with a SUPER FUN giveaway you won’t want to miss!

    Love each of those fabrics and they would integrate well into my existing pieces. The painting I bought for a song in an online auction arrived today and it is full of those colors. I must be drawn to them too.
