coffee + cre8tive {may 22 '06}

Since most design blogs are covering the fab ICFF like crazy, I promise I won't get into it here, too. They're all doing such a terrific job, it's fun to scan the various blogs to see what's up.

I have to high five Apartment Therapy for posting about Denyse Schmidt, a favorite here at decor8. I'm thrilled that Denyse showed at the ICFF this year, she is totally reshaping the typical image people have of quilting, isn't she? Most think of country style quilts, am I right? With Denyse, quilting has a fresh new look. Modern, clean, urban with a dash of country charm. Sure, those stunning country style quilts and wall hangings will always be a huge part of American culture, and for good reason (they're wonderful!), but it's nice to know that if you love quilts, but have a modern decor, you can actually find a modern quilt to complement your space.

Please don't forget to check out Apartment Therapy's complete post, with photos from the ICFF, here.
