Today I am going to take you shopping at one of my favorite go-to places for a shot of retail therapy. Whenever I have an out of town guest who wants to get a dose of Dallas shopping (I am speaking of girl shopping here, interior design loving friends…), we make a stop through this store and they always fall in love with it. Blue Print happens to be right in my own neighborhood, where Uncommon Market was located for years, bringing bright happy charm to a beautiful old house that reminds me of New Orleans- elegant proportions of high ceilings, oversized doorways, architectural detailing, tall windows. They have transformed this posh location into the home you want to have. [Read more…]

Last week the owner of Fortuny was in Dallas to present the latest colorways of the legendary fabric line, the Colourismo Collection. The pigments are as glorious as ever- think Hermes tie kind of purity of color. No surprise, because the namesake Mariano Fortuny (1871-1949) was an artist of the genius level, who even made his own dyes, paints and brushes. All bright and fresh, the Colourismo fabrics will definitely inspire. I have chosen a few to share:
I chose this one because it is a classic Fortuny design in what appears to be the color of the year!
I love the fresh happy colors in this leaf design. All colorways are great of this.
This happy design is just so charming and whimsical. Fortuny, always a classic, seems to be updating and staying with the times beautifully. If you would like more information on patterns, colors or pricing, please contact us.
What are your thoughts on these fabrics? Do they inspire you? Do you feel that they would work in contemporary settings as well as traditional? Share your thoughts…
