Lara Cameron, the designer behind Kirin and Co., is one talented Aussie. I love looking at all the patterns she tucks away in her flickr folder, all of which are available in your choice of color if you choose to place a custom textile order with her. Or, you can visit her fabulous etsy store and purchase screenprinted fabric from her current collection.
I really like her prints, they look so fresh and fun, and would work well in so many different interiors. I need to paint and reupholster a vintage stool, maybe the riverstones in raspberry with a crisp white coat of paint on the base? Hmm…

While some are out enjoying a beautiful summer day, I’m home working like a mad woman [insert poor whiney voice here], putting the finishing touches on a trend report for HGTV. While taking a mini break, I decided to check in on Virginia Johnson to see what she’s up to lately. Oh. My. Goodness. My day is made. You can now purchase all of her textiles online. I have to share! Isn’t this great? I’ve been trying to decide on the fabrics that I want to use for the Amy Butler gumdrop pillow that I plan to make in July, but now that I found all of Virginia’s textiles online (super easy to order), I’m going to jump in and just go for it. Aren’t these exuberant colors simply intoxicating?
Stacy McCallum from Pixie Dust contacted me last week and so nicely sent over some samples of their poplin textiles, available by the yard via their website. They’re so soft, and the colors are completely dreamy. The pagoda and topiary are my favorites, especially in the lime and blue colorways, I can see them both in the home (especially a baby’s nursery, so sweet) and in a multitude of craft projects, perhaps covering a bulletin board or as part of a quilt or blanket.
