MORE JIM THOMPSON




Before I get to the good stuff....pretty pictures and design....I gotta tell you something. 


 Been sitting hear this morning waiting for the AC dude to finish up the summer service call.  

Question.....after reading my blog do I seem like the kind of girl that would be interested in the "Law of Thermal Dynamics"?  I wanted to interrupt with something like...."look AC man...I have a engineer husband that can bore me with shit if I so desire so shut your trap and finish up."  Polite me just pretended like I was listening all the while looking over his shoulder and thinking about restyling my coffee table.

I can multitask like that.

The other day when I did a post on that cute room in Southern Living using the Jim Thompson fabric: bamboozle... I found out that they have a new wallpaper collection.

Since I always want you people to be in the know and have things to talk about at your next party....let me share.



Byzance....8 colorways


Ikat..... 9 colorways
Imari....7 colorways

Monsoon....6 colorways


And my personal favorite
Jim's Dream....3 colorways
These pictures do not do them justice.  AND...there are more!


While we are at it...a few more fabrics from some of their collections.
Get your blue on....
Pretty darn pretty
Jewel tones are back.....
More dragon goodness...
Kind of a chain pattern....I am loving this one.


Nice Ikat


Another colorway of the one above.....


Love the fabric on the chair....and those blue doors!  All of these fabrics are JT.
It does come in quite a few colors.....


I am taking these fabrics to be made into pillows today...
Dang it...they seem kind of dull after all of that color :(


Guess what tomorrow is????


SCOTT'S.


Yup.


Get through Wednesday and it is down hill all the way.

In addition to loving thermodynamics, I'm in love with that Abracadabra chair. I think I want my headboard in that. Or maybe a paid of pants.

Taylor Greenwalt said...

So many great designs. I aaahed and oohed at so many images. I meet with the Kravets rep yesterday to see their new fabrics. I forgot to take pictures.... They had so many new and beautiful fabrics.

Jessica {The Aestate} said...

OMG so many gorgeous fabrics!! LOL about the AC guy. I would've changed the topic to interior design and then given him a taste of his own medicine.

Whitney @ Drab to Fab Design said...

baha no you seem like the type that would be more interested biochemistry. for sure.
I love all the brights! and that crazy coffee table is pretty sweet too.

traci zeller designs said...

Fabulosity! The fabrics, not the HVAC man. Charlotte sooooo needs a designer center!!!

Carla Aston said...

Yummy fabrics. I can just taste how delicious they are!

elizabeth@themustardceiling said...

Ha! Sherry you are too funny. I would do exactly the same thing. I just want the problem fixed, I don't really care what the problem is...I too would have been polite and would pretend to listen.

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous line-up today. I love everything about the blue and white room, it is so fresh. The fabric on that chair really pops!

Cindy said...

Omg, i dated an engineer... he would talk to me about dewpoints and HVAC systems, and my eyes would glaze over, and i would try to rip my earlobes off...

I love that Ikat fabric, and I can totally relate to being bored by the AC guy. I can get bored by my engineer husband ANYTIME I want...keep it moving, dude! ;-)
