~ found fabrics

I am currently looking for some pillows... You may remember one of my first posts was about my obsession with pillows.  You can read about the obsession HERE.  Now, to be fair, I am not randomly looking for pillows just for fun... I am on a mission and need to reorganize my pillow situation. You see, I may be losing a pair of Fortuny pillows I am currently using in my master bedroom.  My sister-in-law is trying them since I have two pairs that are very similar.  We think they will be perfect on her living room couch... (revealed in a future Inspired Home!)  I am happy and willing to help a a girl out... especially if it means welcoming a new pair of pillows into my home... 
Lucky me, I found a wonderful line of prints from a company called Galbraith & Paul over the weekend.  They are casual and whimsical, but not silly.  I don't want silly pillows. Things that Inspire, a long time favorite blog, featured a bit on Galbraith & Paul HERE.  She is using fabrics from this line in her new home currently being designed by Suzanne Kasler... which, by the way, looks to be stunning.  Surely she'll share her finished product... we can only hope! Now that would be an Inspired Home to see!
After perusing the Galbraith & Paul website, I was thoroughly impressed with more than a few fabric options... Here are some examples of their look.

This is the first photo from Things that Inspire that caught my eye. The orange fabric mixed with the green is totally me! 
(I so love that green - it's my blog background color!)

Other pretty fabrics and colors...

This one is my favorite.  I love the colors... LOVE.
Several of these fabrics would be perfect in my family room or my bedroom. ... Now, we'll just have to wait and see if Sister-in-law likes the Fortuny pillows...

Welcome to the world of blogging! I too love green, and your blog has such a fresh, original look.

There are a few lines of fabric that I love, and have an artistic feel like Galbraith & Paul - Raoul Textiles, China Seas, Quadrille. They are all to the trade, as is Galbraith & Paul, but they are really beautiful and worth seeking out. I also like Rose Tarlow fabrics and Kerry Joyce, but their patterns tend to me much, much more subtle.

Have a great week, and thanks for the mention!

AO~ I bought a pair of beautiful pillows from you last year... My sister-in-law and I split them... they were gold silk with gold threading and embellishments with a beautiful green velvet backing. We love them!
