Autumn, Time to Cozy up your Home Living Space...

Autumn is a time for making sure all points are a go for the upcoming Holiday Season. I know, it seems to come earlier each year. This year will be no exception, kids!
The newest issue of House Beautiful features warm and cozy colors. They also love layers of fabric, color and texture. Sometimes too much can be just that, but some of the pages of this issue are truly wonderful. We photographed page 48, which is their featured "Paisley" inspiration page. Another fabric that is all the rage this season is Ikat. The history is interesting, they say it is similar to Tie Dye, yet done on a loom. Some of the threads are dye resistant and that helps to create the rough organic style of this now very popular pattern.
These featured fabrics are great for simple accents, Pillows, and Drapes or Curtains, however because of their histories, they are also a classic choice for recovering and interesting small chair, footstools, bedding or even a colorful shower curtain. Go ahead, tool around on and see if you can resist being inspired by our ample selection. While your at it, send us some pics of your finished products, or rooms. We would love nothing more than to feature your beautiful vision and handiwork. By the way, you may also be inspired to stitch up a Scarf, Dress, Handbag or Jacket. Get creative, we love how you think!
We have also pinned some of the fine examples of our Ikat & Paisley choices on our Mary Jo's Cloth Blog Pinterest board. Check it out.
