A Few Notes

I’ve been way behind on posting our new Skirted Roundtable discussions.  So, if you follow along with the updates from my blog, to get all caught up, the next one is Mr. Jamie Drake aka “The King of Color.”

I think you can just look at this picture and understand his love of color!  Or else he is a huge University of Texas alumni!

Many of his interiors are filled with pinks and oranges and lilacs.

Wow!  Amazing!

Not all his interiors are wildly colorful – this dining room is actually sedate.  Love the wallpaper – it’s gorgeous!!!

 

This interview is unique because it’s the first one we’ve ever done LIVE!  Drake was interviewed in person at High Point during market a few weeks ago.  Linda and Megan did the interview as I did not make it to Highpoint. Sad smile 

Oh well, maybe I’ll go next year – that is, if I magically wake up a few years younger and many pounds lighter!!!

To listen to the King of Color, Mr. Jamie Drake, go HERE.

YOU’VE COME A LONG WAY!!!

 

Talking about Sunbrella fabrics – they really have come a LONG way!   They used to be so limiting, available in just solids and cabana stripes.  Today, they are available in an array of colors and patterns!    These new fabrics work as easily indoors as they do outdoors and many designers are exclusively using Sunbrella indoors because of its long wearing and hard working potential.

Fellow Houstonians, make note of the following event coming up at the Robert Allen/Beacon Hill Showroom.  It’s all about their new Sunbrella fabrics.   If you have any questions about this event, be sure to contact the showroom at 713-439-0200.

Aren’t these fabrics beautiful?  Hard to believe they are Sunbrella!!!
