I have always loved the look of navy velvet. My grandmother did have a navy velvet sofa, when I was little; maybe that’s when the appreciation started? Navy velvet looks so luscious, dramatic, elegant and timeless. Here’s some great navy velvet inspiration.
Last week, we posted about John Robshaw’s textile-rific apartment and many of you commented on loving the bed in his bedroom so I thought I would share pictures of Mr. Robshaw’s NEW Headboard line!! They are fabulous shapes and you can get them in ANY of the lovely fabrics by John Robshaw. Feast your eyes!!!

So, last week we put out a call via Facebook for customers and High Fashion Home lovers to send us photos of their High Fashion items in action. Brandi was the first one to answer that call with her INCREDIBLE wing chairs!! She got the chairs super cheap via Craigslist and had them upholstered (by Stevens Upholstery in Carrollton, TX) in a suzani style fabric that she got from High Fashion Home!! Love them so much!!
**If any of you out there would like to send us shots of your High Fashion Home purchases at work, please email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, we are looking for volunteers for home tours! Love your home decor? Want to share your unique design style? Send us pics of your abode and we will share them via our blog. Send pics to email@example.com
>Last week I did a post on pillows and got a suggestion, from Decorative Pillows, to showcase some eco-friendly and fair trade pillow options. They asked and shall receive.
For those of you not familiar with the term “fair trade” here is what it means- “Fair Trade is an organized social movement and market based approach that aims to help producers in developing countries obtain better trading conditions and promote sustainability.” (Thank you for that explanation Wikipedia) And I’m pretty sure most of us out there know what eco-friendly means so I will just get on with showing the pillows! Enjoy! : )
>Nate Berkus is such a cute, interior designing genius. There, I said it. And, I really love his show. Today he did a segment on wall design without paint. For those of us who live in apartments or lease condos and can’t paint walls, Nate offers his upholstered wall idea. On the show, he actually took a printed tablecloth (but you could use a sheet or other cotton fabric) and “glued” it to the wall with liquid starch. The liquid starch doesn’t harm the walls and is easy to remove when you need to. Check out the video and then get starching!
