Color Punch Part Three

Pillows, blankets, throws, rugs, all of it, crafted from vibrant, vintage (or new) textiles reinvent a room. They bring color, texture, pattern, and volume. Summer is officially here in portland, and I have felt the need to reflect the warmer weather in my home. Leif is one of my favorite home-goods store, and the cactus tea towel + kilim pillow are delicate and fun colorful designs. What Jessica Helgerson (a Portland-based designer) has done for her clients Brooklyn brownstone is absolutely divine. A perfect showcase of introducing pops of color from textiles. El Cosmic Provision's and Pattern Society are two places one must look to for textiles. I love the Bolivian blankets from El Cosmic Provisions, and I will take anyone of those rugs featured on Pattern Society.  Finally, I could not resist the bold geometric pattern of the varanasi stool from CB2. Color Punch, enjoy!
