Vern Yip was in Laguna Beach to talk about design and show his new fabric line for Trend Fabricut at the Laguna Design Center! Many of you probably recognize him as one of the amazing judges on HGTV’s Design Star, his show Urban Oasis or that he’s been active in the design world forever. He was nice enough to come in and visit our store! We loved that we got to chat with him, talk shop and snap a photo! It was nice meeting you Vern and thanks for stopping by!

It seems like damask and ikat fabrics have taken over lately! The more recent of the two is damask fabric and it seems to be showing up in living rooms and bedrooms all over! The damask fabric is a bold fabric that definitely stands out in a space. So designers usually will just use a touch of it with pillows on the sofa or maybe even curtains, but that’s not to say they won’t go all out with wallpaper or furniture. We love the damask pattern because it breaks up the space and adds some welcomed texture to it as well. Check out some these great examples we’ve found and let them inspire damask fabrics in your home!

Spring is showing itself more and more everyday and with spring comes beautiful sunny days, clear blue skies and lush greenery. So why reflect that in your home? One way designers are accomplishing this look is through the use of fabrics. We’re talking pillows, curtains, upholstery and even bedding. They’re working bright blues and gorgeous greens into the space with more than just accessories. These colors can invoke an instant tropical look and feel in any space after a much needed getaway from winter. Treat yourself to a vacation in your own home by waking up every morning to these beautiful blues and greens.

Our team will also help you hunt down the perfect pieces for any room and work will you to create palettes, ideas and styles 100% custom to you. We don’t slap a cookie cutter, pre-designed style into you home because that’s not what designing is to us. We believe that designing is an expression of a person’s individual style and taste incorporated into a space. Since no one person is exactly the same, no space should be exactly the same.

During the month of January we’re offering complimentary design consultations when you bring in this coupon. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you with your next project. Happy Friday!
Halloween is right around the corner, so why not have some fun this weekend with the family? It’s time to get ready for crafts! We found two crafts that we thought would be great for the family, especially the kids! The first project is from Pretty Handy Girl and shows you how to make some fun and decorative pumpkins using fabric and toilet paper. These are great for Halloween decor and home decor. The best part is they can easily be used for Thanksgiving decorations as well. They’re pretty easy to make and look great! Check them out here!
The second project we found will give your house that spooky, festive look on Halloween night. This project is brought to us by eighteen25. This is another simple halloween project that only requires a few milk jugs, a marker, a string of Christmas lights and some creative drawing. Grab some markers and let the kids go to town! They’ll be excited to put them outside and when Halloween night comes the neighbors will know you’re ready for some trick-or-treaters. Get the guide by going here!
Have some family fun this weekend and give yourself those last minute Halloween decorations! Have fun and happy friday!
