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.

Chalkboard Typography Style is Such FUN!

This week’s featured design got its start one evening this week.  I was watching Hallmark Channel Christmas movies with my beloved husband (tissue box close at hand, LOL!)

An Chalkboard Typographic Style Wedding Invitation Set, with Calligraphy Flourish Swirls and leaves.idea popped into my mind.  I grabbed my sketch pad, pencils and other goodies and began to play with creating a chalkboard, cafe’ sign style wedding or invitation set.

After tucking my hubby into bed, about two o’clock in the morning I had finished much of the design work!  Inspiration has a mind of her own and when she desires to play with me,  I’ve learned to run with her  🙂

The result was this Leaf Swirl, French Cafe Sign style Chalkboard Typographic Calligraphy Flourish wedding invitation set.   I began my career as a calligrapher, to hand lettering has always been a love of my heart and I hope it shows in this collection.

In this set you’ll find Wedding, Bridal Shower, Couple’s Shower, Rehearsal Dinner, and Reception Invitations as well as a wide range of coordinating products for every need.

If there is an item you would like to have that hasn’t been created just let me know – I’ll be happy to do so.  This will also eventually be available for Quinceanera and Bat Mitzvah Parties as well.

One of the most delightful parts of my job is looking at weddings – lots, and lots of weddings!   I study color, design,and especially the “feel” of where the style is going.  One of the fun directions is towards elegance with a touch of bling.

This new “Diamonds & Lace” Collection is available in a wide range of color selections, including Black & White, pinks, purples, and several colorways of blues.  Blue is the big color story looking ahead to 2012.  Everything from a rich navy to soft baby blues and especially mixed together in unexpected ways.

There is also an option to custom color the front and reverse in two different colors – simply email me and I’ll walk you through the process.  Is your wedding hot pink & black – blue & green – golden yellow & grey?  We can do it for you!

Today’s Best Awards at Zazzle

For those that aren’t familiar with the Zazzle marketplace, there are literally billions of products available from millions of artists, photographers and designers.  Each day, Zazzle selects 30-40 of those products to reflect what they felt were the best and/or most interesting new items created that day.

I have been blessed to be selected many times in the four months I’ve been active at Zazzle, but this last week I was really pleased to have my products selected 3 days in a row.  It’s quite an honor and a reward for your hard work.  Thank you, Zazzle!

The contemporary flower design was a lot of fun to create.  So many of these contemporary designs are just drawn and colored in on Photoshop.  I love to bring  watercolor art into contemporary design and give it a flair that flat graphics will never achieve.

This collection was created out of the art work I designed for my “Paradise” fabric collection with Studio E Fabrics.  There are three different collections within this collection which makes it perfect for the bride that hates “matchy-matchy!”

And finally, a contemporary baby girl baby shower or birth announcement.  One of the things I love to do with my Zazzle store, is play with creating more contemporary work than might be my usual.  This “Circles ‘n Booties” ensemble is a great example of mixing classic Audrey Jeanne art with a contemporary twist.

I am just 1400 visits away from 700,000 hits!  Thanks one and all for taking time out of your day to let me share my art and my heart 🙂
