a few items of interest

The really great husbands out there have already emailed or called to purchase  gift certificates for design services for their wives for Mother’s Day!  I don’t know about you, but I can think of a few rooms in my house I’d like to finish.

That fabric from a couple of posts ago that many of you asked about is F.Schumacher’s Ziggurat, and it indeed is very delicious.  While I dislike the term “transitional” I think this fabric is.  I might even need some of it for my house… and that says a lot, because I have a hard time committing to fabrics.  Maybe because I see so many?  I fear if I pick one, tomorrow I’ll find one I like better?  Who knows.

In other fabric news, I receive many inquiries about the fabric that is on the chairs in my living room and unfortunately up until last week I had no idea how to get my hands on that fabric, well guess what… Allison found it!

If you are interested in that fabric (above on chairs), a gift certificate, or that F.Schumacher fabric you can email Allison: allison(at)urbangrace(dot)com !

  6. I feel the same way about fabric, love so much, see so much, I can never commit in my own home!

  7. I guess I have to have a baby before I receive a Mother’s Day present. If I was a mom, I’d forward this to my husband as a subtle hint, hint.

  8. Wish I were a Mommy – I’d LOVE one of your gift certificates! Hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day with your precious little one!

  12. Uh, Erika, Patrick really needs to work on my mother’s day gift, and I have a “Big Girl” room to plan. Will you email me, and let me know how he can purchase one of these gift certificats/vouchers? :) I’ve just gotten caught up on your blogs of late, and I could eat your little girl up… Adorable!

  13. I am interested in you for Mother’s Day. How much do you cost? With a bow on your head and your baby in your arms. Please!

    oh yes, and those yellow thingies on the table…i know they are something nautical but right now my mind is fuzzy

  15. Love this and look forward to your blog w/every update. A very Happy Mother’s Day to you Erica!

  16. When I first saw the pictures of your chairs, I was instantly enamored! I adore that fabric and I hunted it down like my life depended on it. I’ve since made a few pillows for our living room out of the fabric (I found mine at Calico Corners), but I still covet your slipcovered chairs.

  17. I am definitely one of the people who asked about the fabric- I LOVE IT! I found it at Calico Corners a few weeks ago for right around 30 bucks per yard.

  18. I have loved that fabric forever…since I saw it on your chair probably. Found it at Calico in New Orleans and immediately forced someone to buy it for a new settee. It is total showstopper!
    …thanks for featuring it again. Love glimpses into your home!

  19. I have that Malino fabric but in the other color. Love it! still waiting to get my chair back from the upholsterer.

  20. Barry, are you reading??

  22. I love the pale gray of the fabric at upper right. I would love to make a dog bed with that. Is that weird to want such lovely fabric for my dog to sleep on? No?

  23. Thank you for the auspicious writeup. It in fact was a
    amusement account it. Look advanced to more added agreeable from you!
    By the way, how could we communicate?
