getting out of our rut

Things have been pretty hectic around here lately between technological catastrophes, personal injuries, and broken cars. However, we are slowly but surely getting things back on track! To show signs of life here at Urban Grace we thought we’d share some lively fabrics we are loving right now…

Erika’s choice :: Katie Ridder :: Peony

Allison’s choice :: Mally Skok :: Rohet

Lauren’s choice :: Raoul Textiles :: Pasha

If you want information on these fabrics you can email lauren(at)urbangrace(dot)com !

Part of our technological trouble is related to the “contact” form on our website… it does not work.  Which is terrible.  If you’ve filled out that form and never heard from us, it’s because we never got the inquiry! Ugh. We are trying to get this fixed, but if you need us… please email: allison(at)urbangrace(dot)com

We’re getting back on track, catching up, and recovering… you’ll be seeing more of us on a regular basis now.

Happy 2011!

    OOOOHHH loving the fabrics, even the peony fabric with the jelly-fish vibe…., refreshing! glad you are getting back on track, a tough row to hoe you have had,indeed. But you come from strong stock and are “bendy”, so off you go lass (and lassies!) and be lively!!

  35. Erika – thank you for introducing me to Katie Ridder fabric. Until your post I had seen some of her wallpaper but never the fabric and its fair to say it’s love at first site.

    I’m racking my brain for a project to use some – if I come up with one I’ll be in touch with Lauren.

  38. Dear Erika,

    I’ve been following your site for a while and have been very impressed by your posts. Like this one here, I appreciate that you offer simple concepts for how to enhance a home environment; through basic things like fabric choice and colors. I have a site called “My Bamboo Flooring,” that educates interested parties on how to buy, install, and take care of bamboo flooring in addition to teaching them of the eco-benefits of bamboo floors. Because I feel your content would be perfect for my readers, we have decided to feature your site on My Bamboo Flooring’s Best of the Web award page (

    In addition to a placing your link on our award’s page, we would like to also give you the My Bamboo Flooring’s Best of the Web badge that you can place on your homepage, which will link back to our awards page.

    Please let me know if you are interested in this honorable mention on our site and I would be happy to give you further details about how to get your badge.

    Thank you!
