Beach Cottage, Nautical Home Decor – Customized by You! Personalized Fabrics

Every time I have set about to redesign our own home’s decor, I run up against the same issue.  I simply do not want to look like everyone else’s home.  When I try to find bedding , or drapes or pillows that fit “my style” perfectly, I’ve found 1 part success and 9 parts frustration!  Does this sound like what you have experienced?  Well…

Beautiful Beach, Coastal Home Decor Fabrics for Nautical, Ocean, Shore Decorative Themes.

Technology has provided an answer for those of us that are a little more unique than the masses (some might call it “picky”).  Zazzle has now added print on demand fabrics that are manufactured by Manual Woodworkers and Weavers (MWW).  MWW is a long time, high quality home decor manufacturer.  Their product lines have been sold into the finest of gift shops and home decor stores for decades.

I recently ordered samples from Zazzle that were made from my new “Indigo Ocean” art collection. The artwork in the collection was inspired by a wonderful trip my husband and I took to the Bahamas a few years ago.  I loved the island’s architecturally rich mix of patterns often found in exuberant and vibrant antique tiles, the fabrics of the women’s dresses, gorgeous beaches and the ever present seashells of the Caribbean.  This first fabric is the focal design for the collection.  The photo above is Zazzle’s product image which is considerably less vibrant than it actually is.  This fabric is the Polyester Poplin which is heavy enough for any upholstery project you might consider.

Our Newest Art Deco Wedding Invitations

The 1920s produced some amazingly lasting and elegant design styles.  With the ascension of Hollywood movies and Television drama stories set in that period such as Downton Abbey and The Great Gatsby, there is a growing love and appreciation for the era.

My husband and I were late to watching Downton Abbey, but once we did, like so many others – we just couldn’t stop watching until we were completely caught up!  So how did my creative side respond…

BOHO – Bohemian Style Burlap and Lace Weddings

One of the strongest new trends in Modern Wedding Styles is the BOHO or Bohemian Gypsy style.  Simple, loose, fun, with a strong element of DIY and touches of burlap and lace.  I think it’s the juxtaposition of burlap’s rough, simple earthy texture and lace’s elegance, refinement and romance that sums this trend up best. BOHO Bohemian Trendy Stylish Chic Burlap and Lace Wedding Invitations Set Vintage lace bits and pieces tied around romantic gathered bouquets.  Escort seating cards clipped onto lace strung from trees and mix n match patterns, old lace table cloths and anything else that warms your heart – make for a warm and welcoming wedding celebration. This design collection can be found in our “Modern Style Paperie” Store at Zazzle:  LINK TO COLLECTION HERE


I have personally have had an addiction to gathering beautiful antique laces.  One of my favorite things to do each summer when we lived in San Diego was to visit the Hand Made lace exhibits at the Del Mar Fair.  The incredible arts of tatting, bobbin lace and other timeless, beautiful crafts are being kept alive for generations yet to come.  Being able to design something that will help keep that love alive is a special joy for me! If there is an item you would like to have made to match for your own wedding, Quinceanera, Bat Mitzvah or engagement party needs, just contact me by leaving a comment here or at our FaceBook page.

Vintage Typography & Graphic Design

My start in the art world was first as a stained glass artist and then I spent a dozen years as a calligrapher.  To say that I absolutely adore typography, calligraphy fonts, and all things text would be a gross understatement!  I LOVE the growing trend in wedding invitations and the stationery field as a whole, of exploring text in design.  

Vintage typography with apple blossoms and tree branch

Last night – about the time I SHOULD have been winding down – I stumbled upon a piece of Vintage art I had on my computer.  It spoke to me.  In fact it called my name loudly and begged me to breath life into it and transform it into a fresh new vision.

The color palette of soft, meadow mossy, greyed green and blush pinks along with the gentle gold metallic highlights makes this set so current for the wonderful new “Old Hollywood” or “Classic Elegance” trends for weddings, bridal showers and more.

THE COMPLETE SET IS HERE: http://www.zazzle.com/vintageweddings/gifts?cg=196248147153481621

Now… it’s time for me to get back on track and back to painting new art!!!  Stay tuned!
