Inspired by the Sea...

Summer, long days filled with bright light, seashells, sandy beaches and sunsets that seem to last forever. The sea has been inspiring fabric designers for centuries. The colors of the ocean, pale blues to turquoise and deep marine blues all are quiet relaxing and lovely. Shapes of shells, seaweed, rolled stones and beach glass make
for very interesting textures and shapes.
This color palette drawn


from the Sea is filled with exciting color splashes. Seaweed Green, Stone Grey, Beachy Taupe (light or dark) Coral Red, Conch Shell Pink, or the subtle Green and Creme of a Sea Urchin. The list is long and the possibilities are endless.
At Mary Jo's Cloth we have fabric that is inspired by this rich and colorful Ocean Environment. Drapery and Upholstery choices are available in a wide range of choices. One of my favorite collections is the historic looking etched style that has patterns of Seaweed, Shells and Coral. These patterns are simple and classic and are available in many shades of Taupe, Dark and Light Corals, Rich Brown, Sea-foam and Dune Grass Greens. These are classic, timeless choices which will allow for many years of use without getting bored. These are terrific choices for Chair-pads, Slipcovers, Pillows, Table-cloths, Curtains or Roman Shades. The patterns are wonderful mixed with solids and striped fabrics. This collection is available in heavy weight cottons and canvas style fabrics or medium to light polished cottons. "Classic Sea" is always an elegant yet natural pairing that is a foolproof.
