Several months ago….a wonderful friend of mine Cynthia Weber approached me about designing a line of fabric for the gatehouse.
I had to think about it….
….for about 5 seconds.
(total aside: Can you even believe I just said line of fabric and gatehouse in the same sentence?)
She read about the colors I wanted to use and the vision I had for the space…..and she understood the need for the perfect fabric.
You see….she’s an interior designer and talented and creative with an incredible eye for design.
And I knew….that I knew….that I knew…..
There were so many patterns and designs to choose from that truly represented the spirit of the gatehouse.
They were fun.
And full of life.
And looked like they all might wear red lipstick and head out on the town.
So I ordered yards and yards and yards…..
…..and used it here.
The collection is designed through Spoonflower and you can order any of the patterns or designs in wrapping paper or wallpaper, too.
So I ordered this pattern in the paper for the craft room.
Just in case someone I knew needed a reminder.
There’s abstract patterns and graphics and numbered stripes and flowers.
You can see the entire collection…..here.
edited to add (from Cynthia): I have had a few people ask me what base cloth I ordered for the pillow so I thought I would explain a bit about the fabric options. If you are placing an order for fabric through Spoonflower you pick a pattern you like then choose what base cloth to have it printed on. They have quite a few options but for pillows, drapery panels etc. I really like the Linen-Cotton Canvas. That is what the pillow for the giveaway is printed on. It has a lovely hand and is easy to work with. For upholstery applications I choose the Heavy Cotton Twill. I hope that helps and thank you to everyone that has left such kind comments about the fabric line! I am so very happy you like it!
And the best part?
Cynthia took the first yard she ever had printed from Spoonflower and had it made into a pillow.
And we want to give it away to one lucky reader to celebrate the fun and joy of The Gatehouse Collection.……
….from our house to yours.
