mixing + matching: palms and fronds!

We have a new post to introduce! Welcome to our blog, Mixing + Matching. It involves lots of pretty fabrics, colors, and prints and of course, recurring themes. It's summer!!! Time to celebrate visually and feast your eyes on some whimsical summery collections for your interiors. We are searching high and low for the right fabrics for a client and couldn't pass up a few fabric samples along the way. 

What are the recurring themes, you ask? Good question! First, and most obvious: PALMS AND FERNS! You know, huge trend right now and festive for the summer months. Option 1 is playful, hollywood glam, bold, bright and totally appropriate for your dream 60's modern California split-level vacation ranch with a pool. (Is that on Airbnb? Because I want to stay there.) If by chance, you live in the New York / New England area, you'll notice there isn't the beautiful thing of the palm tree. We have FERNS here. Which are just as pretty, right? Option 2 is for your beachy Block Island gray-washed teak-shingled house with a pool's screened in porch.  A fun combination of patterns and color and totally fitting for New England. (Gonna be an awesome screened-in porch.) OK, let's get real. Not everyone has a place like this- but no one will stop us from using these fun combos regardless of location or home size! ALSO, both collections have the colorful flame stitch that always makes us weak in the knees. Mix those colors and patterns! 

before and after: sue's family room

Introducing, our latest and greatest Revive Box AND Restyle Box, finally! It's really gratifying seeing the interiors from start to finish. And this one was particularly fun to work on. Our client Sue entrusted us with her family room not long after they moved into their quaint Connecticut home. (See what her box looked like here.) We expanded on her love of color and mid-century style to bring her family a room of happy cheer where they can laze on the sofa and watch their cute as ever baby roll around on the cozy rug. Or if nothing else, at least a fun room in which they can watch their favorite TV show. See more photos here!
