Late Summer Blooms

This morning's trip to the farmer's market entailed gathering up a big bunch of blossoms for an upcoming event. 

Cosmos and snapdragons were among the old garden favorites...The lush vibrant colors feel perfect for a late summer gathering of loved ones. 

The colors also inspired a revisiting of fabrics being considered for a few upcoming projects...

These wonderfully textured, playful and classically beautiful swatches by Scalamandre, Colony Fabrics, and Timorous Beasties have all captured our imagination, as the summer heat continues to linger, grapes ripen on the vine, cicadas hum, knowing the first hints of deeper autumn hues are not far off.
