One of the perks of interior design is that every week or so we are graced by sales reps from various fabric houses who show us their new collections and often times spoil us with sweets and pastries. It's like a mini fashion week but with textiles and no paparazzi.
Marianne from Cowtan & Tout is one of our ultimate favorite reps -- her job is relatively easy as Cowtan's fabrics are always gorgeous, but we especially like her because she has a fabulous collection of vintage purses and she spoils us with chocolate goodies, plus she is just really sweet herself.
Today Marianne showed us the new collection for Cowtan & Tout and Cindy and the whole office loved it so that it was deemed worthy of a blog.
Here is a sneak peek of the beautiful new collection:
We love this linen with the embroidered flower on it. It would look beautiful against a soft green wall with some of these complimentary fabrics.
These blues are so peaceful and serene. The shells are our favorite.
Here is the shell fabric in a different colorway. Cindy saw it and grabbed a recent photo of a beachy vignette at the shop filled with beautiful corals. The fabric works perfectly with this scheme!
Marianne's adorable bag just happens to look so lovely with this absolutely stunning embroidered fabric. The fun part of seeing these new collections is that they inspire us to design and find other pieces that could work together...even if it is a hand bag!
Cindy picked out some wonderful J.D. Staron rugs and paired them with some of the fabrics. See the results:
We hope that these fabrics inspire you too!
