Fabric Find: Beautiful antique fabrics and sample books

I love decorating in white and creams......with a touch of blue; tan or red....I`m also in love with distressed furniture and old world magic.....and then I love, love, love colour, antique fabrics, rich patterns and painted furniture......yes I know........ but that`s me...... the french gypsy......maybe in my bloodline there was a bit of royalty as well??


I just had to share this fabulous posts from Trouvais with you. Look at this antique fabrics and the lovely patterns....and I just can`t get enough of these pattern and sample books......


Some more sample books by Trouvais.......



Trouvais also introduces us to the beautiful and interesting post of Habitually Chic. While in Paris, Habitually Chic had a rare treat. After stopping by the Pierre Frey showroom on the Rue du Mail, they walked over to the headquarters to see their archives. They were surprised to learn that the Pierre Frey archive doesn't just contain Pierre Frey fabrics, but fabrics that they have collected from all periods and styles so that they have a reference when creating new fabrics and collections........

I love fabrics too! The Pierre Frey site reminds me of my 18 years working with wallpapers and fabrics. I would rather buy something to decorate the house than clothes!
