New! Caitlin Wilson Textiles

Yes, I know… I’ve been a bit on a pillow kick lately. Today I heard from interior and textiles designer (and blogger) Caitlin Wilson who told me all about her new fabric and pillow line under the brand Caitlin Wilson Textiles and I went a bit bonkers. Not only because they are gorgeous and totally versatile and can fit nearly any style – love that – but because Caitlin turned her frustration into a business and I’m always so energized by stories like hers (more about that below). But first, aren’t these patterns and colors so fresh and gorgeous?

Caitlin Wilson Textiles

Caitlin launched her design practice, Caitlin Wilson Design, in 2007 and has been designing spaces from San Francisco to the Cayman Islands every since with her work appearing in top magazines and books. Here is a glimpse from her design portfolio that covers every style from African to Eclectic and beyond… If you’d like to view more, her entire portfolio can be viewed here.

Blue + Orange = great color combo!

Geometric neutrals in a kitchen adds class.

A touch of ethnic pattern makes this kitchen a bit more playful.

Add some bright violets to punch up a pastel palette.

Black, white and goldenrod with a little blue and a lot of pattern. Perfect!

This art display really works – I love how close the bottom picture is to the floor – fantastic!

An all white kitchen gets a dress touch with bold pink as an accent through tea towels and a simple floral arrangement. Budget decorating!

As she designed all of the spaces that you see above, you can imagine she had to dig through a lot of resources to find the gorgeous things that she used to decorate and layer each room. In the process though, Caitlin found a void in the market when it comes to colorful patterns at an affordable price point so she decided to give her own brand a try and design what she felt was missing. Instead of simply living frustrated like so many, complaining about what they cannot have or find, she decided to create it herself. You go, Caitlin! Now she has these beautiful textiles that you see shown below (and many more right here) that you can order and enjoy in your own home. Yum!

In her online shop, you can purchase fabric by the yard and pillow covers. Try the fabric to upholster chairs, a headboard or to make a duvet for your bed. I personally love her collection and hope that you do too!

Designer Fluff Pillows + Gorgeous Rooms

I’ve been chatting for several weeks with Designer Fluff and finally have a moment to breath to post about these gorgeous pillows that are modern, bold and pattern delicious! They sent in some gorgeous in-situ product shots that really show off the beauty of their cushions. I love seeing them live in a space, makes me want to own some even more. Founder and creative director Audra Canfield is FIT educated and a New York-based Interior Designer. From chevrons to ethnic prints, Designer Fluff has a little something for everyone.

Melody Miller

It’s always fun to peek in on Atlanta-based designer Melody Miller because she has so many happy patterns in her head and I like how she brings them to life through retro-ish prints and now, her brand new fabric line called Ruby Star Rising for Kokka (available here). Happy brights never let you down, do they? If you’re not a fan of muted hues then Melody will be your new best friend because nothing about her collection is shy or understated! Here are a few favorite prints of mine…

MondaysMilk Fabric Shop

Dutch designer and fabric lover Rozalinde Innemee has a webshop called MondaysMilk where she sells beautiful Japanese fabrics alongside others designed in the United States by Eleanor Grosch and Melody Miller. Rozalinde also carries a few pieces from Japanese wooden toy maker Kiko+ who will exhibit at Maison&Objet in Paris this September.

I particularly love the extensive collection of nani IRO fabrics that she stocks designed by Naomi Ito. I always buy them at the big fabric market that travels around Germany which comes to my city 4x a year (blogged here) so I own some nani IRO prints and have used them to make bags, brooches, garlands and even most recently in a window display that I created in Amsterdam. They are light and breezy – so pretty – and their patterns so soft and painterly.

Watercolor painter and textile designer Naomi Ito has become a big inspiration to me, please visit her website for some inspiration of your own!
