Fine Living II

A while back I mentioned that I'm working to bring you more images of Mississippi-born textile designer Lisa Fine's exquisitely embroidered headboards, or other samples of her work. In the meantime, I can tell you that Fine and Carolina Irving will have a big launch of their hand-embroidered blouse collection at Charlotte Moss the week after Thanksgiving. The following week, Nathan Turner will host a similar event in LA. Fine told me their fabrics will include Ikats from Uzbekistan, silk satin, linen, and cotton.
Above, again, are images of Fine's sumptuous 7th-arrondissement Paris flat. Travels to India inspired her lush color choices -- pink with orange, a few hits of pistachio-green. Turkish and Moroccan styles were incorporated too. (Click pictures to better see details.)
Below, on my TV screen, is Fine's Indian-inspired headboard as seen in HGTV's one-hour special, Homes of Paris.
