    Swatch Page from House & Garden

    copyright 2011 House & Garden Magazine

    So I've finally just recieved the swatch page from the February 2011 issue off House & Garden showing 009 Textiles Leopard Pansy print front and center.

    I must say I love this layout. It works beautifully as a page. From an interior design point I would love to create a material board resembling this. I just love the depth from the shadowing giving it both depth and space.

    A New Year = A New Adventure

    Welcome! With a new year comes new adventures and an anticipation of good things to come. I had been thinking about starting a blog for quite some time just never got around to it. So when Emilie O'Conner of 009.textiles asked me to start a blog for her company I was quick to say yes.

    009.textiles is a fabric design company owned and operated by Emilie O'Conner from her studio in West London. Upon completing an internship with Emilie in July of 2010 I had developed a strong love for fabrics and the process it takes to complete a design from concept to finish. It truly is an incredible experience.

    Having my degree in Interior Design I was taught to be familiar with flooring, fabrics and wallpaper but never really thought much of the design process behind them, always looking at the finished products instead and how I could best use them in a space.

    This blog is dedicated to the design, production and love that goes into producing fabric. Over the course of the next year I will post anything and everything to do with fabric - pictures, prints, and trends and even ways to apply them to your everyday life in the hopes it will inspire you.

    Heres to a New Year, New Adventures and New Designs!
