CUSH CUSH WORK

There’s something charming about a retro airstream—so we were thrilled to learn that Stephanie was working with Jane Schweppe to transform Jane’s beautiful airstream. Below are the before photos!

Because Jane is not afraid of color or pattern, they were able to take the airstream to another level with graphic blue prints and pops of orange. See the after photos below!

PILLOW TALK: CHEVRON RIBBON PILLOW

RIBBON pillow

There are many reasons to love our chevron ribbon pillow. But what we love most about this pillow is the rare ribbon textile.

Many years ago, a prominent Texas fashion designer spent her free time at her loom, weavings rows and rows of colorful ribbons into classic patterns. These hand-loomed ribbon fabrics were used for her custom couture clothing line for Saks Fifth Avenue.

Bolts of this remarkable fabric were uncovered by Stephanie and transformed into beautiful pillows. Lucky us, because now we can take a piece of fashion history home!

DRAPERY 101: PATTERNED DRAPES WITH ART

ART

Hanging pattern drapes next to your colorful art might seem like a daunting task. You may be fearful that the two may compete or clash, but the success of this task is finding the balance between the two.

Before Stephanie designs drapes for a client—she takes inventory of what art lives inside her client’s room. In the top photo the room leaned on the neutral side, so Stephanie selected a patterned fabric with subtle colors.

In the photo below, Stephanie’s client embraced color but still sought a drape that would make an impact. Stephanie selected a textile that was strong in color but subtle in pattern. This way her client’s art still shined.

CUSH CUSH FABRIC SELECTION

CW
When you update draperies—it’s vital that the new fabric compliment the existing textiles in your space. In the board above Stephanie utilized the original fabric from a client’s home to select complimentary 1960’s inspired fabrics. She wanted to make sure the integrity of the original design was present by picking textiles with similar tones and graphic prints.

Which is your favorite?!

ADD A POP OF COLOR

backyard color
When you think of adding a pop of color into a room, you might think of a few colorful pieces against a neutral background. But in spaces like an outdoor dining area—you can have a bit more fun.

Stephanie demonstrates this by adding a colorful centerpiece to her bright yellow table. The vibrant piece breaks up the colors nicely and adds a taste of personal style. Her white rope chairs also received a lift of color with bright pink pillows.

THROWBACK THURSDAY

travels

This client travels the world and has a deep love for India. With a home surrounded by treasures collected from her travels, Stephanie was inspired to introduce a new layer into the space with Indian inspired fabrics, some even beautiful sarees from her travels. It’s a wonderful example of how a love for your travels can inspire your home every day.
