Happy Spring 2024

Insearch of warm weather, I headed down Route 95 South. A few days of sunshine and 75+ degrees weather was magical after a long winter in NY….you know that feeling of the sun on your face and toes in the sand.

Inspired by my travels, I am feeling renewed and energized. I am booking appointments for 2024. A family retreat on the shore, lake or mountain is fantastic. We are here to assist you. A home in the city or country could feel just as relaxing and comfortable with a few design secrets.

We have samples of playful and sophisticated fabrics, as well as indoor/outdoor fabrics and rugs for your enjoyment. Now is the time to get started. A Spring home design update may be what you need to rejuvenate your home.

3 Cozy essentials for your home

Hello February! We are delighted to bring you fresh ideas for your home. While we weather the cold months indoors, invite the colors of the earth and sky indoors.

If you can’t escape to Aspen or the Bahamas, make your staycation more comfortable with these three essentials for your winter home style.

Blue pillows remind us of blue skies and warmer days ahead.
(Schumacher in collaboration with Mark D. Sikes )
This pillow features Manta Performance with a knife edge finish. A layered geometric inspired by indigenous motifs.
This high performance woven has a vintage look and the satisfying weight of a rug. Pillow includes a feather/down fill insert and hidden zipper closure.

Texture, pattern and performace fabrics are available for a kid and pet friendly home.

Designed in Vienna, the Chevron throw is lightweight, warm and made from the softest organic merino wool. The reversible double jacquard pattern is knitted and finished in a small family-run mill in Austria.

More patterns available through our 1:1 design services.

Layer pillows and throws in your favorite fabrics to your club chair and furniture. We have a wide selection of styles, sizes, fabrics and trim to customize furniture, pillows, windowtreatments and rugs.

Perennially chic, the divine leopard print on our Safari Throw, based on a classic Schumacher pattern, is subtle and sophisticated. Made from the softest Italian cashmere and merino wool, this reversible throw is cloudlike and cosseting and finished with a fringe.
Every home needs one!
Featuring a lustrous pattern that ripples like water, this Moire Throw—is based on Incomparable Moire, a classic Schumacher pattern—is subtle and sophisticated and lets the luxury of the fibers shine.
Made from the softest Italian cashmere and merino wool, this throw is cloudlike and cosseting and finished with a fringe. 

Tip: Need a little ambiance…..add florals, plants, simple greens, scented candles and music to your home. We love our Sonos player!

Decorating with Vintage Charm

We all need a little retail therapy, right?     Manufacturing new furniture during Covid-19 has slowed down.    However, I have been  sourcing online for some wonderful things to make home feel cozy and gathered while supporting local small business.  Decorating with vintage and new pieces creates a collected room.  There are many designer shops with inventory that could use support.  Shop local and stay safe.   Below are a few pieces I love sourced online and from local vendors.

Design Musing: European Design

Spending more time at home is creating a to-do-list of projects to finish and start for many during Covid -19.  Thinking of designing a room, remember trends come and go.  Good design is timeless, however.    Case in point,  French country style.

Make Your Own Sunshine

There is one thing I do for myself weekly.  It’s not an expensive purchase … although it could be.   Here is a clue, I grown it at home.

pink peonies and cowan tout fabric

It needs sunshine.    Are you following?   It shifts my mindset to happy, sunny days.

Yes, flowers!   I must have blooms or a plant … something alive that wakens the senses.

Flowers are magical, don’t you think?    On cold winter days when there is little sunshine,  fresh flowers, a single rose or a green branch, really brings me a sense of peace and joy helping me make a fresh start during January.  Don’t wait for something good to come your way.  Go find that something.  It’s out there waiting for you.
