Today is cold and drizzly in Fort Worth. A good day to snuggle up on the couch and watch "Parasite" since it managed to catapult itself into the Oscar record books on Sunday. A throw is an integral part of this couch snuggling, along with popcorn, hot tea, and pjs. But a throw is not only functional, it adds warmth and layers to a room. It says, "here, sit down and get comfy, have a cuppa tea". We love the texture and color balance it adds to a room too. Lots of color? A chunky sweater knit throw in ivory provides a breather. A more neutral palette? Add a pop of mustard or pink for the perfect punch. Here are 8 ways you can use a throw in your decorating.
Neutral ivory bedding gets a boho update with this colorful embroidered striped throw.

Pop of Pink

So, we may have gone a bit overboard on our swatches last week when we visited the Dallas Design District. The whole team scoured showrooms for fabric and wallpaper swatches and then three shopping bags later, we hauled our goodies back to the office. It was a bit like Christmas morning. You all know how much we love color and well, we definitely found some amazing textiles that we can't wait to incorporate in to our clients' homes.
Andrew Martin's new Hacienda Collection is inspired by Mexican art and wildlife and just make us so happy. The vibrant patterns and colors of the traditional dress of Oaxacan women provide additional inspiration.
Another line we fell in love with is from John Robshaw and features traditional block printed textiles from India with whimsical motifs of elephants and birds. The indigo dyed collections are gorgeous and we are big fans of the mixing and matching of prints. One of these days we need to take a field trip to India to check out this block printing in person. Who's in?
