Tiny Trinket in Coral Reef by Robert Allen. This swatch has been tacked up on my inspiration board for some time, and it makes me happy every time I imagine it cascading down a wall as a beautiful drape. Its embroidered pattern is so charming, and I especially love the saturated Coral Reef colorway.

Nympheus in Linen/Stone/Pistachio by GP & J Baker. This is one of my all-time favorite fabrics! Part of the Baker Originals collection, it’s a long-established classic. Its subject matter, scale and coloring are the perfect mix of modern and traditional. Plus, if you’re looking for a botanical that doesn’t skew too feminine, this is the great pick.

Les Fougeres by Schumacher. Gosh, there’s just something so lovely and elegant about this fern fabric. I think it would be so perfect as a roman blind or headboard at the cottage.

Henderson Stripe Sky by Tonic Living. 100% cotton and the loveliest shade of soft blue, I love the vintage ladylike-ness of this graphic stripe.

Jacaranda in Willow by Designer’s Guild. Birds, flowers and branches on the dreamiest buttery silk — this fabric is a heartbreaker! It would look so beautiful as an elegant curtain, undulating in the sunlight, or covering a powder room window.
