My first job in the design world was at a fabric store and my love for textiles has only grown stronger as the years pass. I covet fabric samples as if they were gold! My current obsession is printed linen. It's natural, but with the right design can create a sense of whimsy and modern (if that makes any sense). A great company I can't get enough of is Galbraith & Paul. They hand-block all of their fabrics with unique color palettes in their modest studio. Founded in 1986 by Liz Galbraith & Ephraim Paul, they started out as a paper making studio that specialized in hand printed lamp shades. They now have a line of textiles, rugs and wallpapers!
