The Howland Collection

Introducing The Howland Collection!

The new fall collection begins on a crisp autumn morning. It’s a morning where milk turns a warm cup of coffee into that perfect latte color. It’s a morning where light dances across the bedroom walls, creating ever changing patterns. As morning gives way to afternoon, smoky grey shadows cast long grids along the sidewalk, and weathered steel reflects the soft luster of the late-morning sun. A day in the studio is spent creating potato prints, marbling paper and working through ideas in a sketchbook. By the end of the day, the light has shifted, casting everything in deep blue-green hues.

Naturally dyed shibori linens, subtle metallics, hand-painted marks and an array of rich neutrals layer together to create this thoughtfully crafted assortment of patterned pillows. Luxurious but relaxed, these artful works are made to be lived with and enjoyed.

All of the pillows are designed and produced in small editions in the United States. We’ll be sharing more details about this in the coming weeks and you can also learn more about our process in our series ‘How we Make it.’

Can you believe it’s September?  The summer has flown by.  Next week we’re headed to the Cape for my younger sister’s wedding.  I’m really looking forward to it – and extending the summer for a bit longer!  I’m in need of a few more swims in the ocean this year.  Here are a few of the links I loved this week:

Loved this post on marriage – number one reminds me of Steve as I like to go to bed early.

Lovely things.

Our fabric line featured on Remodelista!

I can’t seem to find the time lately for thorough cleaning… but this post has got me thinking about getting our home ready for fall.

What your ponytail says about you.

An interior to inspire.

My sister recently gave me a set of aromatherapy oils I’ve been using in the shower, so I enjoyed this post on essential oils.

Classic stripes.

Loved this look at Eskayel’s home office.

Loved this list of things to do in Brooklyn Heights – and seeing two of my favorite bloggers collaborate!

Fabric as Art

Colleen Siddig is a talented interior designer working and living in Brooklyn.  We also both grew up on the Cape and recently reconnected.  I think our shared childhood hometown definitely influences both of our aesthetics and is one of the reasons I love her work.  Colleen was almost done with the interior above and needed artwork to go above the television.  Her idea was to use a yard of one of my fabrics and I think it came out really well.  She picked the Dashes print in stone gray.  It adds texture and interest without overwhelming the space.  I love the idea – don’t you?  It’s actually a really affordable way to do a large piece.  See more of this beautiful home after the jump and be sure to check out Colleen’s website.
