Blue Inspiration

Wesco Fabrics, turquoise, Billionaire, Top of the Line
When I develop decorative fabric collections or source furniture and accessories for our Wesco Fabrics’ showroom, my color vision is formed from inspiration close at home and from travels far and wide. Blue is hot at the moment, whether in cool turquoise or saturated indigos.  The blue tones played an important role in our new Spring 2014 fabric collections from Wesco Fabrics.  I love the new Wesco patterns Billionaire, Top of the Line and Corinthia in beautiful blue hues!

My views on hues starts close to home. I love the shade of my granddaughter’s blue eyes!

Essaouira, Morocco, fishing boat
Travel provides inspiration on so many levels and can amp up your pixels for visual excitement. I carry my camera and phone at all times and record anything exciting for later reflection.  I loved the blue painted fishing boats in Essaouira, Morocco.
