Sarah’s signature approach to interiors blends classic influences with modern innovation to find the right balance for today. Kravet and Richardson collaborated to create a collection of fabrics that reflect her signature style and fresh approach to design and interiors. Stylized floral prints on linen combine with versatile geometric prints in a variety of scales, and are anchored by textural woven elements. The Sarah Richardson Collection for Kravet offers a series of complementary palettes to encourage designers to layer, experiment, and create their own vision of comfortable elegance, while the variety of patterns supports Richardson’s philosophy that every fabric should be able to be mixed and matched to create an easy and relaxed ambiance and a unique style statement. – See more at: http://www.kravet.com/products/collections/sarahrichardson/#sthash.A6GQlKAN.dpuf filicia_logo filicia_headshotInterior designer Thom Filicia is universally known for creating modern, yet classic interiors that retain an inviting aesthetic and reflect the individuality of his clients.

Use Vintage Fabric in Outdoor Entertaining!

Poolside, outdoor entertaining….. does it get any better than that this time of year in Tallahassee? We think not! 2013-09-13 16.24.49

Recently, one of our staff hosted an outdoor party at her home. The weather is perfect this time of year in Tallahassee and what’s better than a perfect poolside setting. The party was for a very special bride-to-be, so Danna, hostess and fabric-lover extraordinaire, pulled out all the stops. Beginning with a Chrysalis vintage fabric, intimate 4-toppers and high-tops were layered with white floor length tablecloths and the beautiful Chinese lantern fabric. The black background of the fabric highlights the spectacular colors of the lanterns while the new trim added that touch of the modern. Alternating colors of the trim kept the table toppers fun!  Expanding on the Chinese lantern themed fabric, Danna added decorative and functional lanterns outside the front entry and throughout the trees by the pool. Glimmers of candlelight provided the most inviting ambience for her guests to enjoy the celebration. We think it was a super-successful, super-fun design! Thanks for your constant inspiration Danna – and congratulations to the happy couple!
