Ranking No. 1 on my Tivo box is Bravo’s Million Dollar Decorators. (Sorry Honey Boo Boo.) You don’t have to love interior design to get hooked on this show. It’s high drama amongst creative personalities with dreamy budgets. And it’s full of fabulousness.
Kathryn M. Ireland brings it every time. She’s sweet, funny, and kinda crazy and uses fabric and color to reflect her clients’ travels and appreciation of art and textiles. In all of her projects, beauty and function hold equal importance, making the spaces comforting and livable.

I'll show you mine, if you show me yours
Want to see what’s on my floor today? I’m trying to make a room work around these wallpapers and I’m digging deep for fabric. Something for the windows, chairs, window seats and maybe some pillows. I won’t use them all at the same time, but at some point each of these will resurface in one of my projects. It always happens that way and it’s almost never intentional. What do you think?
I’m struggling a little here. Back to it. Thanks for coming by.
P.S. For more of these wallpapers and fabrics go to:

...& pretty, pretty, pretty
I love all stages of building homes, but I have to say the reward to the “pretty” part (fabrics, wallpaper, furniture, etc.) is especially great. If you walk into my office at any given time, you will find small piles of swatches and samples all over the floor. I like to call them mini-shrines to my projects. It makes me feel better than just calling it a mess.
There is purpose behind the chaos though, as I try to make patterns work together and find ways to pull new color in to a room. Give it a try below. In the left column, I’ve set up some wallpaper prints, in the right, coordinating fabrics. You can do this. Who goes with whom?
