Instagram

After messing with my new phone for too long and spending way too much time with the camera options, somehow Laura Fair is now on Instagram!

Chickies-Baby Chirp

This weekend we will be sipping some bubbly and celebrating the launch of my new Laura Fair Baby Chirp Collection for Golden Rabbit enamelware in Atlanta at Americasmart.  If you are there...come and join us on Saturday, July 12th from 4-6 pm in Building 2 #835A.  We all know some little ones who rule the roost and these were made with lots of love just for them.

I am the King around here for our boys

and I am the Queen around here for our girls.


 The best part...they even come in a cute box set complete with a plate, bowl with lid, and these tiny mugs.  How perfect is that?

High Point Debut

I spent a little time in the US over the month of April.  It was a whirlwind of a trip filled with travel, family, friends from near and far, all with a little business thrown in to wrap things up nicely.  We celebrated my Daddy in NYC, cruised around the Hudson Valley, lounged at a NJ lake, were enchanted by azaleas in Alabama, and had our fill of ham and cheese on rye (not to mention a lovely golf course) in Augusta.  Oh...and the business...that was the High Point Market.  Somehow with all the travel I had been doing, I managed to get up to North Carolina as well...and was so happy that I did, as five new Laura Fair decorative pillow collections made their debut at the Rizzy Home showroom in Showplace.  True to my Laura Fair style...these collections offer on trend colors and patterns diverse enough to fit into any decor.
The Washed Neutrals Collection features Ikat motifs and muted greys, blues and yellows.

 Blossom Collection boasts bright florals anchored with crisp white and navy.

The Peacock and Fig Collection, a perfect mix of classic and contemporary with grey-blue, celery, and emerald green.

You already saw the Constantinople Collection here with its blue-greens and bright red.
And the Mirror Mirror Collection highlighted with bright orchid, chartreuse, and grey.

I know I say it every time I post new collections, but I really do get such satisfaction seeing my designs come to life.  These above will hopefully be hitting stores very soon!

Flashback to Turkish Delight

Where did the time go?  I sat down this morning to go through the past few months in pictures.  Being visual, it seems to be the only way I can remember life these days.  I stumbled across some very colorful snapshots of my time in Istanbul this past February.  An eyeopening escape from my little vita Italiana in the country.  Despite not having the best weather, the city was beautifully alive and exotic.  What inspiration was found there...not to mention the level of history and spirituality that literally hangs in the air.
 A once in a lifetime trip and I must thank my friend Kimberly for sharing the time with me. Coincidentally before I set foot in Turkey, I designed a new collection of Laura Fair pillows for Rizzy Home entitled Constantinople.  

These recently debuted at the High Point Market this past April.  Oh...did I tell you I was there?  More to come on that...

Neoprene


I love this new product from Cypress Home...Neoprene!  (Yes, finally I have a koozie, among other things, with my Laura Fair designs!)  Just look at this bright blue display Evergreen put together for the showroom this January at The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market®.  We are right on trend with our blue and white I might add!


The entire collection features Wine Bottle Totes, a Lunch Bag, koozies, an eyeglass case, a wallet...the list goes on and on with essentials.  As I think about this mix of product while torrential rain pours outside, my mind wanders to a warm, stunningly clear day, not a cloud in the clear blue sky, a picnic by the lake with a cold crisp glass of vino bianco...
a girl can dream, right?

Buon Anno 2014

Felice Anno Nuovo!  Buon Anno a tutti!  Auguri!  Happy New Year!  
Despite the gray skies here in Tuscany, we have been celebrating and celebrating, lots of food and friends and laughs.  I hope that you all had wonderful holidays full of fun as well.  The great thing about being here in Italy...our holidays don't end until after Epiphany, January 6th when La Befana comes to stuff even more presents in our stockings.  So here's to continuing to raise a glass....cin cin e salute (cheers and to your health)...wishing you all a happy and prosperous new year!
