Not your typical fabric patterns, these beauties from Eskayel let you interpret their meaning, almost like an ink blot test. Is it tie-dye? Batik? Do you care? It's just plain cool!
- setting sun in raspberry on linen
- culebra cubic in blue on linen
- sweetwater in aqua on linen
This is just a small selection of the many interesting fabrics Eskayel offers. Additionally, they feature pillows, baskets and more on their website. An especially fun feature, you can shop their line by color. Enjoy!

“It’s summertime, and the living is easy” or so Sam Cooke assures us. The demands of a new garden, the lure of vacation, a child’s schedule is flux – along with enough work to fill every day – leaves me to doubt Cooke’s words. And so you, my Dear Readers, are left without a new post. The ideas are swirling in my brain, awaiting their chance at freedom.
Real life connections trump those in the virtual world every time. While I do treasure my virtual connections, the immediacy of those around me each day in the flesh cannot be ignored. I am hopeful August will afford me the opportunity to share some of my summer finds and adventures.
For today, I leave you with these two events to look forward to:
Designer Spaces & Market Places returns for a second year, and it's going to be amazing! Save the date for our Passport Party:
SAVE THE DATE! Spaces & Places Passport Party
And this, spotted at WestFarms, made my heart do a little jig!
anthropologie coming soon to westfarms!
But don't wish away the summer — go out into the world, enjoy, and be sure to laugh!
Go ahead and laugh!!

Oh, I need a beach house just so I can have this sconce! It's funky, original and slightly offbeat — don't you agree? In antique brass, from Maitland-Smith

I adore functional elements in a home that elicit a smile as you walk by!
