No 9 Thompson and Martyn Bullard=Fabric love!


Sep 22, 2011
OK…it is no secret that many people get into design because they love textiles and I am no exception.   I don’t have to tell you of my love for fabrics….it has been mentioned a time or two…..and the fact that pillows are made of fabric [whoa…there’s a news flash for you!]  well that is just the icing on the cake.

The other day at the end of my post I showed you a new fabric from Jim Thompson’s lesser priced line called No.9 Thompson.  Yesterday I was at ADAC to hear Steve and Brook Giannetti speak about their new book Patina Style.  I am sure you are familiar with Brook’s blog Velvet and Linen.  I have to tell you they were so engaging and cute.  How wonderful to be married to someone who is passionate about the same thing as you are.  Some of the projects they have worked on are amazing.
But let’s go back to the subject….I did take a few pictures of No. 9 Thompson fabrics.  Here for your viewing pleasure is some beauty….

Here are a few colorways…

I think I am in love with the blues….

Of course who doesn’t like a bit of black and brown together…

I love how it looks hand painted.
Here is another fun large print.

 The blue and green

Blue and gray….likey.

I like that this has a dark gray in it instead of black.

A nice paisley.

I am all over this pattern…could you die?

So loverly…..

Kind of retro….

I like this colorway.

Ok…now for Martyn Bullards new line for Schumacher

OH yeah…I can see you waking up now!
I am in love with this line and I think the price point is not to bad either.

Fun and fresh right?
Hold on people cause there is more…

Yeah baby……that Ikat on the left….come to mama.

Which room can I redo?  Geez…which room can I just flipping finish.

Hold on…it gets even better….

This fabric is saying “BAM I look good!”

More chevron goodness.

Care for some soft and pretty?

Cause he did that also.

Bad picture but trust me….

These were just beautiful.

Are you impressed? I am.  I think this line is going to be a big hit.
Celerie came out with a few more colorways of Betwixt.

This bright green, the black and white, the soft gray, & the cobalt blue.  This is a great fabric to throw in the mix when you need some geometric and texture.

So are you crazy with lust now?
Well I have a little more eye candy for you in the form of rugs.  These are from Moattar, LTD at ADAC here in Atlanta.  I wandered in there after I saw this from the stairway…

Really…seriously?  I adore.  Jason Moattar came over and gave me a tour and told me that this is a reproduction collection that they have now. I could die for this.  Here are a few others that caught my eye.

Almost wrote a bad check for this one……so Ralph right?

This is from the same collection.

Unfortunately this was NOT a reproduction….and of course it had me at blue and brown.

But OK…this was and how fun [like a slip and slide]……I bet your mind is spinning now.
You want one…call Jason  404 237 5100.  He will hook you up 🙂

Take Thursday and tear it up baby!

Sha fabulous!
