Inspired by // part one

If you've followed me for a while, you know where I draw my inspiration. Traveling makes my heart skip a beat... getting to explore another culture, experiencing all the sights & smells of big cities and little villages... all these things spark my imagination. I am constantly taking photos of color combinations I love, textures and patterns that jump out to me, and views that stop me in my tracks. I want to take you back to my first inspiration trip to Italy. And then maybe you'll understand why I kind of have an Italian obsession (besides the fact that I live and breathe for pasta, red wine, cheese, olives & bread).

An overlook in Vernazza, Italy

Vernazza, Italy is one of the small villages that make up Cinque Terre. This branch full of blooms, arched out in my view and became the inspiration for the pattern "Woven Branch." Starting with this image, I went through multiple sketches as well as computer variations before getting to the final pattern.

Final pattern

What first began as an eco-friendly paper goods company, has now moved on to textiles, wallpaper, table linens and gift wrap. I knew one day I wanted to see these patterns on pillows, drapes and it's all becoming a reality. All products as well as yardage are available on my website and also on Guildery offers CUSTOM COLORS for no additional fee! The soft tones of blue and neutrals are a personal favorite of mine, but we all know that may not work in your home. If you want to create a custom pillow or table runner and need help, just email me!

SO MANY sizes of pillow for your couch, bed, accent chair. I offer the linen/cotton blend as well as a 100% cotton duck option on my website. Check out Guildery for more fabric options.

I personally am still dying over the wallpaper. I cannot wait to find the perfect spot to wallpaper an accent wall.

Freshen up your home with a new set of napkins, a table runner or a set of tea towels.

Want to add a different type of art to your walls? The Woven Branch pattern is available as a canvas wrap and multiple sizes. Don't forget you can create a custom color!

These Faux Sherpa Throws might be my new favorite item added to the list of offerings at Guildery. This would be so perfect on a cold winter night and I love the soft blue color for a nursery...

Get gift wrap on Guildery as well! You can use it to wrap the most perfect gift or get creative and like drawers, a cabinet, frame it, make a tray, etc. If you find a new use for the paper, tag me and send a photo so I can see your creation! 

Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.
