Ryan and I traveled up to Washington, DC/Northern Virginia this weekend, where we lived for four years after college and prior to moving to Winston-Salem. We were able to visit with many dear friends and enjoy some of our favorite spots in the city, making us a little homesick for our old stomping ground...
While we were there, I picked up two fabulous new items for the booth:
A vintage suzani textile, handmade in Afghanistan. $300, soon to be located at Hunt & Gather. Shows some age. Perfect for:
a) a coverlet for the bed (notice the screen headboard!) (image from Elle Decor)
b) a striking tablecloth (image from Elle Decor)
c) a wall hanging. I love how this person used a suzani in place of a headboard; it's unique, but still serves the important purpose of visually anchoring the bed to the wall. (image from style-files.com)
Also discovered this weekend was this chic mirror:
Gold bamboo-framed mirror, 28"w x 31"h, $375. Soon to be located at Hunt & Gather.
While in DC, I also stopped by the Washington Design Center to search for fabrics for various projects and to see what's new in my favorite showrooms. I found the following goodies, and can't wait to use them all!
"Shalkar" in Indigo, by Shumacher
"Facet" in Midnight by Sea Cloth
"Jaipur Tree" in Poppy, by Schumacher
"Poppies" in Indigo/Cream, by GP & J Baker
"Fergana Embroidery Print" in Prussian, by Shumacher
Time to turn in after the busy weekend; have a great week!
