Get The Look…

Post 3 - ORC Wallpaper

Here at Stone Textile, we are often smitten with statement-making wallpaper, and these days it seems like everyone else is too! With so many gorgeous (and often removable) options available, even renters can jump on the recently-revived wallpaper bandwagon. Lately I’ve been spotting products that remind me of the amazing accent wall from the One Room Challenge, covered with a black and gray abstract pattern from Lindsay Cowles. The wall’s print is a little hard to describe – is it tie-dyed? Marbleized? Geometric? It’s a beautiful Rorschach Test for sure! If you’re into it as much as we are, check out these great finds that share the same abstract, painterly look.

A Minted Holiday…

Stone Textile _Minted 1

It’s that time of year….The holiday season is fast approaching!  Before Thanksgiving, we always start thinking about our company holiday cards.  I love doing something different each year.  This year, we are working with Minted.  They have so many great customizable options  to choose from.  We have  showcased a few favorites on our new diamond chalk wall in the studio.  Make sure to take a look at all of the corporate holiday card options that Minted has to offer here.

I love this color block one.  The letter-pressed foil boarder card is beautiful in person.

Look at all of these patterns!  You can also choose from 100′s of patterned backs for your holiday card.

Vintage Made Modern Tabletop / Chase + Scout

Stone Textile_Tabletop1

I recently learned about an Austin based company called Chase + Scout.  They collect vintage china and then screen print on top creating the perfect vintage meets modern look.  We are using their plates + tea cup/saucer sets at our SXSW Pop-Up Shop.   I love how their pieces mesh with our Diamond Print table linens.  We had a lot of fun putting this together yesterday.  Here are a few images from our set up…

The Inspiration Board / No.1

The-Inspiration-Board_Stone

This week I have been inspired by the 1920′s.  The fashion, the textiles, and the home decor.  A favorite is a certain detail on the beautiful chiffon Lanvin gown pictured above.  The dress has little metallic gold leather stripes perfectly sewn on.  It creates a very cool pattern and tricks the eye.  Leather detailing is a luxurious way to add a little edge to a design.  Here is a close up…

Leather Detail

Leather detail is still used in fashion today (Rag + Bone)  and I always love incorporating leather where I can when designing as seen in the The Four Square Pillow + The Three Part Pillow below…

On Mixing Textures…

Metallic-Middle-Pillow_StonAs a designer I am always looking for unique ways to use textiles.  I love mixing textures and experimenting with “hard” and “soft” elements.     This little play on words is even carried into our company name, Stone Textile.  Stone being the “hard” element while Textile is the “soft element.  The Metallic Middle Pillow, shown above, was one of my first designs and is a personal favorite.  The outside and back are a soft textured cotton while the middle overlay piece is a metal netting blend.  See how other designers have chosen to mix textures below…

DIY JULY…

Last July, while prepping for the first Stone Textile photo shoot, I took a re-upholstery class and made the chairs and bench used for the shoot.  The class was a really great way to incorporate my love for vintage shopping and my love for art projects.  DIY projects are perfect for Summer.  What are some of the projects on your DIY list?

Do you know we sell our Stone Textile original fabric by the yard?  Email us and we can send over a swatch!  I also just finalized some new fabric designs that will be available in a few months.

Modern China

As much as I love collecting vintage china sets there is something about these modern pieces that are also great options for your table.  This dinnerware by, Michael Wainwright, is in stores now.  I love how he incorporates texture into his designs.  Adding the platinum set to my list…

For a more formal dinner party I would pair the platinum set with The Stone Textile Signature Print Place Mat and Napkins.

 If I were setting the table for a casual dinner I would pair the gold dinnerware with The Diamond Cut Acrylic Chargers in Black and   The Stone Textile Multi-Diamond Print Napkins
