NEW: A Creative Mint for Cloud9 Fabrics

Hello everyone! Before I say goodbye for the weekend and get ready for the big David Guetta show tomorrow night (yay!), I want to share something that is quite exciting to me… And near to my heart. As many of you know, Leslie Shewring from A Creative Mint has been a friend of mine for over four years and we’ve been working together on this and that – currently a book – and for several years she has been writing her Color Me Pretty column for decor8. She has been taking some time off from the column recently because she was hard at work on hand-painting patterns soon to be launched as her brand new fabric line for Cloud9 Fabrics. I’m extremely proud of her as I’m sure you are too. Here are her new patterns to launch this Fall  - aren’t they gorgeous?

From the Cloud9 site about this collection, “This delicate watercolor voile collection by Leslie Shrewing of A Creative Mint, was inspired by where she use to live in Palos Verdes, CA. The warm blush tones of the sandy and clay packed earth along with the architectural patterns inspired by some of the local sites. She was also in awe of the endless array of wildflowers that grew all over the hillsides and down the trails to the beach.” I can’t wait to own all 6 of these and am thrilled for Leslie!

What do you think? Are you in love???

    GO Leslie!! Every one of these patterns are beautiful and inspiring…of course I would expect no less! The wildflower florals would be lovely in a girl’s room or sun room, and I would love to make a seat cushion for my desk chair from her chevron print. Congrats Leslie, and thank you for sharing, Holly! xo Laura
