I’m gearing up for a very busy fall. one of the things i’m most excited about and most proud of is my new fabric collection with schumacher. i don’t want to spoil too much, but i do want to give you a preview. i’ve created some mood boards, i love a mood board, made some renderings and photographed some of the patterns in my garden.

i started working on this collection with schumacher almost 2 years ago.  such an honor to work with in my opinion the very best fabric house- everything they are doing is sensational! when i was thinking about the collection, of course i wanted to create beautiful fabrics, i also wanted to create fabrics i’d use over and over again. i had to have a pretty chinoiserie floral, a smart ikat, a playful paisley (my new paisley medallion is spectacular if i say so myself) and of course a perfect stripe. BTW there are two perfect stripes.

i know everyone is expecting blue and white from me, as you should. and there is blue and white, but there’s also a lot more….you’ll see. the collection is named after my favorite places in california. each pattern, each color, and each fabric captures the california spirit. it’s #onthemark !

the collection is available on line September 3rd and in schumacher showrooms september 6th. get ready, the collection is beautiful and it’s more than just blue and white.
