    Love the Fashion Blues!

    One of my favorite runway designers is Oscar de la Renta and his gowns. They are so dreamy. In his Spring 2012 designs, he captured crisp navy and white in a casual yet elegant way in his masterpiece below. Reminded me of our Imperial Paisley bedding collection.

    Spring 2012 Photo shoot—Before and After Shots

    One of the fun and crazy times of year is our photo shoot! After months of designing, planning, shopping for accessories and scouting locations, the day arrives when we have to bring it all together for the shoot.

    I thought it would be fun to share some of the before and after shots from our Spring ’12 shoot. Our location was a beautiful home on the seacoast in Rye, NH. We were so lucky the weather held out for us. Tropical Storm Irene arrived the day after we finished!

    This is one of my favorite shots. Our stylist, Karin Lidbeck, transformed our 200-year-old colonial entryway into one typically found in a tropical paradise!

    I loved planning the shot for our Leopard Azalea rug—going a little crazy with Pink & Green! We chose the new barn out in the apple orchard. It had a large, casual space with great light and our goal was to dress it up a bit with our “Classic & Sexy” Leopard collection!

    We took some of our bedding shots in the house where the rooms were smaller, but filled with light and charm—enough to create a coastal feeling with our Sanibel quilt.

    Our photo shoots are a ton of work—with everyone unpacking, repacking and moving heavy furniture. But we do make some time for fun! For one of our cover shots, Maggie and Julie—two of our designers—worked tirelessly cutting up strips of our printed fabrics and stapled them to the pergola in the back field. What crazy idea were we concocting? Why Maggie running through the fabrics of course—creating a carefree feeling of summer!

    We just finished our Fall ’12 photo shoot so stay tuned for more fun!
