Looking to Fashion...

With so many fashion designers and stores mixing into the world of interiors, my only wish is that J.Crew will expand someday with an entire collection of soft furnishings because I envision most of their patterns in the home. The red and white organic starfish print would be gorgeous on a wingback chair or as drapes puddling on hardwood floors. And the postcard linen print is another favorite when I imagine it as a duvet with yellow piping, with the reverse side in a yellow and white geometric pattern. I see fluffy down-filled unbleached linen pillows, monogrammed in black with swirly initials because I'd need to add some whimsy while maintaining the preppy j.crew vibe. Maybe the pillow piping would be the postcard print. Hmmm... J.Crew if you're listening, please design a collection for the home. And hire me, along with all the savvy decor8 readers, to work for you. Not everyone wants to wear a starfish mini skirt, but most of us would love the chance at using the pattern somewhere in the home.
