Palm Beach Orange and Blue for Season

I have been selling lots of
orange and blue pillows here at
Then I started looking around
and notice it being used
more than I thought...
It seems to be an unexpected 
trend in the pillow world 
at the moment.

As I started to be aware of it

 than I thought.
Really a nice combination.
Enjoy your weekend!

For one of my favorite clients we needed

We added some pillows for the living room
and a coordinated bench pad
for the foyer leading in.

I found some great trims
in my studio and they
added just the details we
were looking for.
This is a work in progress
so I will be posting 
more to follow.
