Grass Cloth Wall Covering

I have been loving grass cloth for the last couple of years!  I really got into when I did the DC Design House in the spring of 2010.  I was working on a large library that lacked warmth and I decided that grass cloth was answer.  I have been smitten since!

This one is from Kravet

A closer view of the same paper.  It has wonderful slubs of dark brown almost black that lend alot of character.

Kravet and Phillip Jeffries are a couple of my favorite resources and I have been browsing through the collections as I am researching a for a client.  Here are a few of my finds...

These vibrant colors make you think twice about grass cloth!

Great geometrics!

Gorgeous damask

These are all Phillip Jeffries.

These are from the Kravet website.  Great textures.
Clear out the old stereo types of grass cloth in colors that resemble paper bags and let your imagine go!

Stark Sale!!!

The annual Stark Sale is going on now!! 

Stark Carpets

I have been so super busy at work, I haven't been keeping up with my blog, but I had to get this out today.  I took some time out on Wednesday morning to check out the Stark Carpet sale and I hit payday!  I found rugs for two of my clients!  The cool part is that I had seen these rugs in the showroom and already had Mitch, my salesperson, price them out for me.  So...when I went to the sale he found them for me and was able to save my clients money on the carpet!  So now I can buy the fun stuff for their bedrooms.  Yes, both rugs are for bedrooms.  

Here are some pictures of what it looks like.


Here the guys are unloading and stacking more of the area rugs.  As you can see, there are loads of rugs and vary from the traditional styles and colors to flat weaves, stunning Tibetans and antique reproductions.

Of course there are tons of remnants! 

 These patterns are current styles and wonderful colors.  I LOVE the fantastic geometric!


There is also a section devoted to fabrics and they even have Pratesi !!
