The blog world has been a buzz for about, oh TWO years apparently about this amazing fabric.. what do you think?? love it hate it?? I think the aquamarine (robins egg) is wonderful, though some of the colorways i dont care for…i have noticed several bloggers (Sloanie Home and LGN) even using it (the aquamarine) in their blog header/designs…i am telling you, everyone loves this almost like the trellis craze!

what i also love/find interesting is that i have noticed this fabric on various blogs..both modern AND traditional and very preppy and all seem to love it and use it in wonderful ways…everything from high end articles in Domino, to Kristen Bell’s apartment in InStyle recently, to Little Green Notebook’s darling rental dining room too! (love her settee with the dining table)

even Vera Bradley used it for chairs in one of her new stores.. and YES it is expensive BUT you can have pillows made out of it from this great shop on etsy and they even have Christmas stockings!

i think it would make great roman shades in my little kitchen! who am i kidding, i could get a new dishwasher (which i badly need) AND a fridge for what that would cost!;; but it is fun to admire a gorgeous fabric, keep my eye peeled for a scrap to call my own, and notice the knocks offs (pottery barn what a shock) and influences popping up everywhere…thoughts??? is there another fabric you are obsessing over lately??

  4. I was reading your post about your babies…they sure do grow up fast. One of my babies is a freshman at Texas A & M this year. It seems like just the other day she was sitting her on the ground and taking pictures of her. Enjoy your boys.

    My husband hates it and I love it. There is just something about the combo of colors that just makes it so pretty.

    The aqua colorway has to be my favorite. Because it is so popular I'm not sure if I would use it in my own home, but everytime I see it my heart aches for it. So you never know it might sneak into my house.

  6. i LOVE this fabric and just did a fabric post yesterday too. i really need this in the alabaster colourway…LOVE it.
