Can’t believe January is almost over! After all the little things we do in order to transition into the new year; attending parties, family gatherings, setting our schedules, cleaning out and setting new goals, we hopefully still feel the refreshing spirit of starting with a clean slate. If taking time to slow down is on your new year’s resolution list, let us introduce a great fabric scheme to spend some quality time with. This month we are delighting in a wonderfully soothing colour palette. We are using lilac to evoke tranquility, it is a consistently cool restful hue throughout the chosen silks, velvet and patterned fabrics coupled with ”the green fairy” also known in French as “La Fée Absinthe”. This notorious elixir of absinthe wood, anise and spices, is a natural spirit yet is also intoxicating and esteemed as a bohemian beverage. Designers of every kind are captivated by the depth of its light green shade, well illustrated in this beautifully white-embroidery on silk (#6) as well as hints of it in the embroidered linen (#7). Other shades of green help ground the palette with a lighter willow shade and a deeper green-tea silk, interestingly both are colours found in our lush Florida vegetation. The clean whites give an airy “Palm Beach” look; fabulous, fresh, and sunny. Perfect for taking time off to indulge.
