I was at the grocery store the other day....a place which is totally out of my element....think someone who has been in a coma for 30 years and they wake up with the task of having to figure out how to use a cell phone.
I tend to either wander around like a lost puppy or run in and only get half of what I need like the floors are on fire.
This time I was standing near the salad bags staring at all of the selections and getting more confused by the minute [there are so many different kinds of greens now] when this woman pushed me out of the way and threw her bag back on the shelf ...."These are made in Mexico!" and walked away in disgust ......like she belonged on a table shouting to the masses to take extreme action about something.
Huh? What...the bags? The salad?....come back crazy angry lady....what do you mean?
Crikey....one more thing I gotta worry about. Where does my lettuce come from.
Grocery Store = Confusion + Anxiety
Back to design....my safe place.
Having ADAC so close to me is a luxury and I know that. It makes my job easier. While searching for some light gray grasscloth I discovered some new wallpaper and fabric this week.
It's ironic that they both have an ethnic feel....
First up is this new wallpaper book from Kravet
Check out some of these great prints.
I can never resist a good paisley....
Next up is a boutique fabric line.
Seema Krish [born in Bombay] has lived in the United States for 15 years and now resides in San Francisco where she creates these beautiful textiles.
Some of my favorites
Using traditional textile making techniques....
This gorgeous line can be found at Ainsworth and Noah here in Atlanta.
Off to the trenches....but it's Friday after all! Next week the Design Bloggers Conference is in town....anyone coming?
