Otomi Matching

August 03, 2015

We've been "quality controlling" (aka having fun with...) our fabrics just to make sure they wash well, sew well, wear well, and most importantly, look great!

First up, I sewed a simple tote bag with Otomi (Red) and then matched up the interior pocket with a scrap piece of Otomi (Navy). I did actually sew this over the 4th of July weekend, but the thing is that I actually love red and navy together all year round so no harm, no foul with the patriotic timing of this endeavour. I just sort of guesstimated at a pattern by cutting and sewing rectangles together.

See how I sort of got it to line up? Mostly. And then after that, I forgot to take more photos.

Fast forward to my field trip to the beach to photograph the Otomi (Navy) chairs I made. And by made, I mean I bought some Ikea beach chairs and sewed some fabric over the boring fabric they came with. Too bad the San Francisco weather was mostly uncooperative the one day that I found the time to go to the beach. Luckily, though, I found a friend to come with me, and as it turns out you don't need a lot of sunshine to enjoy drinking champagne in patterned beach chairs with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge.

The moral of this fabric matching story ends on three very happy notes in that these chairs turned out super pretty, you can't go wrong with a big, Otomi tote and our fabric collection is off the chain!

I can't wait to sew more. In fact, Aimee and I have some big, crafty plans in the works, many of which will be happening at our first annual #sewlapalooza in a couple weeks. More to come!

We were really happy to be included in the launch of Tiebreakers, a new podcast series to help people take the leap from their corporate job into a creative field. There are few things we love more than talking about wallpaper (and not being lawyers anymore...). Listen here. Thanks, Samantha!

The Wild (Underwater) World of Wallpaper

July 27, 2015

I've been in Colorado helping my parents look after my little nephews this past week. So, of course, I jumped at the opportunity to teach everyone how to wallpaper.

A total natural!

Wallpapering can be fun. Seriously. It really is all about having the right attitude, as they say.

A success! You can't underestimate our Underwater World wallpaper for teaching important life skills and for it's entertainment value.

The Folly

July 26, 2015

Or in this case, a mom walks into a bar with her 13 year old son... While in NYC last week, I stopped by The Folly with my older son in tow real quick to check out their pretty amazing Diamante (Gold) installation.

Gorgeous, no?

I really loved their attention to small details - like this tiny slice of wall that got some wallpaper love. I'd love to be able to comment on their cocktails, but I figured that enjoying a drink there with MJ would have perhaps been pushing the good parenting boundaries :) Next time!
