Photo to Fabric

The fall leaves are brilliant. Brilliant! Especially after a good rain - the colors almost become richer when the leaves are wet.

I vividly remember stepping outside our first house in Conshohocken 2 years ago and seeing the most beautiful spread of wet leaves right there on our front steps.

I came across that photo the other day and saw a design project a few photos away where the colors in the fabrics selected mimicked the leaves in my first photo.


And this my friends is my inspiration for Photo to Fabric. Fun, isn't it?

Coral and berry mixed with a deep forest green, rich mocha, chartreuse, and a touch of lilac make things interesting.

Fabric sources on the right are clockwise from top: Victoria Hagan, Victoria Hagan (Four Seasons in Fall - how appropriate!), Peter Fasano (Kalahari in Lilac), Zimmer + Rohde ikat.

  1. Hi Holly, I love the fabric combination you put together!! That is what is so great about creativity - inspiration can come from anything and anywhere!! BTW, I love V.H.'s Four Seasons fabric. What is the fabric in the top left corner - looks like lulu DK?? I like it.
