Custom beds and bedding

  We spend a large portion of our lives in the bedroom. Why not surround yourself with comfort and the luxury of custom beds and bedding.

Think beyond the bed. Think about how wonderful it feels to enter your bedroom.
Rethink your Guest Bedroom. Go from twin beds

Birds gone wild

A few years ago, Clarence House fabrics came out with this crazy bird textile named Polly. I fell in love with it. I knew one day that I was going to use it in draperies or bedding. Some how this fabric had to be in somebody's  home. This summer, a long time client of mine sold her forty acre horse ranch in Oregon and flew to Palm Desert for a vacation. Before she knew it she, three days later she bought a condo. She immediately had me fly down pick out paint colours and then she selected fabrics for her new home.
I thought of Polly from Clarence House. This beautiful hand screened linen was the perfect fabric for her bed skirt in the master bedroom.
I posted on my Facebook page about a month ago and the likes went Cuckoo for the birds.
I found the designer fabric in a Seattle showroom. It is to the design trade only. So you will have to go through me to get this or any of the wonderful fabrics that they have to offer.
The details of the bed skirt are all about the impeccable pattern matching sewn by my seamstress.
