Every appointment we had during our UK trip provided so much insight and history into the way that design and textiles are so deeply woven (sorry for the pun) into people’s lives and perhaps that point was made most clearly during our studio visit with @aramintacampbell.
•••••
Araminta has a wonderful line of woven wool, cashmere and silk scarves, throws and cushion covers (soon to be distributed in the U.S. via Holland & Sherry) but it is her passion for designing custom tweeds that truly captured our attention.
•••••
From requests to recreate historic fabrics, to personal commissions, Araminta captures the landscapes, emotions and connections that resonate with each client in order to create a custom tweed, based on the classic twill structure; from checks to stripes, herringbone to houndstooth, even tartans. A true expert in the rich history of tweed allows her to create unique and different combinations for each commission. •••••
That connection to history is continued throughout the production process, as she uses natural wool, alpaca and cashmere yarns sourced and colored by Scottish companies, as well as small, customized Scottish mills weaving. It was remarkable to see the hundreds of variations on tweed that already part of the textile landscape, as well as to better understand the possibilities for creating something absolutely unique—whether or not you or your client have a bit of Scottish heritage!

It maybe Sunday, but the bees are hard at work, collecting pollen  and transferring it from one flower to another.

There can be bad days in heaven too. Still, that doesn't mean it's not beautiful.

Entertaining me while Mum was working out which trees the littlies were exploring.  Could here them calling & had watched the parents foraging & feeding back & forth through the trees.

We had an equally fantastic #dtuk day in #Edinburgh, visiting a top level workroom, a creator of custom tweeds and tartans (more on both of these later!) and rounding out our day with a stop at the brand-new studios of @fisklife , a custom furniture company whose debut line is directly inspired by the Scottish landscape and architecture, but in a thoroughly contemporary fashion.
••••••
Like all our Scottish visits, Callum and Jackie, our hosts, were amazingly accommodating, fitting us in at the end of the day, preparing a specialty cocktail for us and delicious bites of local cheeses. But it was the furniture we came to see and it did not disappoint.
•••••
While we were evenly split over which sheepskin-covered chair we liked best, we all agreed that the “Punk Sofa” was great. Inspired by Vivienne Westwood’s often surprising use of tartan, the Punk Sofa mixes it up in a fashion-forward manner—tartan, tweed, buckles and studs—in a very comfortable settee.
•••••
Thank you to @fisklife for their hospitality, as well as to our other appointments that day.

Again, spotty internet has meant that a couple of the most recent posts didn’t...post. So we’re catching up. 📷: @fisklife

The first #dtuk trip has been golden! Thank you to all our #Glasgow appointments for your amazing hospitality. The day fulfilled a long-held wish to see the studios of @Timorous_Beasties in person, being a fan of their work from the very first glimpse of “Thistle” and “Iguana” . And the visit MORE than lived up to expectations…
•••••
Not only did we get to see both type of manual screen printing processes live (thank you Gavin and James!) we also saw the gorgeous new carpeting TB did in collaboration with @brintons_carpets. Seriously beautiful—have never seen commercial grade carpeting with this much style...and practical thought put into its presentation, specification and end use.
•••••
And, if that wasn’t enough, we also had a “bonus” presentation from another TB collab partner @ButeFabricsLtd…and fell in love with their stunning wools—from a seriously seductive wool satin with a drape and sheen like nothing we’ve ever seen to a luscious wool bouclé. And the new Alchemy collection is beautiful with a gorgeous selection of color options. (More on all this Bute fabulousness later...but in the meantime, thank you George for taking the time to meet with us.)

AND, and....TB Napoleon Bee on linen, going home with one of the #dtuk guests.

Thank you Alistair, Paul and the entire TB team that let us interrupt their day. Gavin: we owe you chocolate doughnuts!

3...2...1 Our #dtuk day in Edinburgh started out with a miraculous bag of workroom tricks that blew us away. Already planning on how to bring this talented, generous genius to the U.S next year for some master classes. Who’s in?

Summer vacation means picnics in the grass, days full of reading books, and fun surprises for the girls (like these doughs from @naturallydoughlicious). I love surprising them with little things from time to time... it helps keep our everyday extraordinary.

A line up of wool and cashmere tartans from today’s #dtuk trips to @dcdalgliesh and @lochcarron_of_scotland. Learned so much about the history of tartans, their colorations, and more. Did you know that you can create your own custom tartan with @dcdalgliesh? And have it handwoven in as little as four meters (although who would only want so little?!)
.....
But can you believe these beauties are called “greasy ends?” These are the weave “tests” at the beginning and end of a run. Washed, blocked and trimmed, they’re going to make fantastic scarves. Guess what the family is getting for Christmas this year?

Made it to the Scottish country house part of the #dtuk trip...with just the teensiest bit of trauma and drama! Let’s just say steering on the right, shifting on the left and LOTS of road closures in Edinburgh made for a slightly stressful start. But look at this place...who could be stressed with all this and a glass of wine?! #decortours #everydayextraordinary #designadventures #designinspiration #kelso #edenside #drivingoppositesideishard #myspatialawarenessisskewed

Repost from @decortours Another excellent day on the #DTUK trip, filled with beautiful design and fantastic insight. First stop was @fromentaldesign , where we learned from design director Lizzie Deshayes the many, many, MANY meticulous steps it takes to produce the company’s gorgeous wallcoverings.
•••••
It’s this level of information that makes it possible to truly understand the value of custom design products. For example, it can take two to three years for the Fromental team to develop a product from initial concept to finished design for their line. And the process for creating their hand painted and hand embroidered wallcoverings includes so many “hidden” elements and technical skills that all makes such exceptional work possible.
•••••
Custom design at this level is an investment, from the investment in time and knowledge that dozens of people have contributed to the process, to the investment of the client’s purchase. Design professionals have a responsibility to understand and share this knowledge—that hours of skilled labor, whether at a computer or with a paintbrush or an embroidery needle, requires fair compensation. Today’s visits and conversations reinforced the absolute need for in-depth product knowledge in order to provide optimal client experiences.
•••••
But we’re getting deep, when you’re probably just interested right now in the pretty! So here’s a detail from one the main vignettes in the Fromental showroom, a chinoiserie wallcovering—hand painted and hand embroidered with copper, silver and gold accents. And just one example of how Fromental also works with velvet (more on that later), a single embroidered cushion that makes a strong statement.

The #DTUK group spent a wonderful afternoon with @susandeliss and walked away with a satchel full of fantastic vintage fabrics!
•••••
But before we show you those, here’s a look at some of the beauties we didn’t (or haven’t yet) packed up with us!
•••••
1. A mid-to-late 19th c. piece, soft gold appliqué with cord outline on a silvery blue ground. The entire piece is bordered on all four sides by a lovely detailed trim.

2. Some of Susan’s own production: embroidery on hand-woven linen. Perfect for decorative hems, leading edges, upholstery insets and more. Can be customized in terms of pattern and color. Love this idea!

3. Another of Susan’s own designs, inspired by one of her antique textiles, an upholstery weight cotton/linen where the design looks nearly as intriguing on the reverse...if it wasn’t for all those weft floats!

Thank you to Susan for opening her home studio to #DTUK for us to dig through in search of treasures, and for sharing her journey from collector to creator. The lovely discussion over a glass of cremant, was a perfect end to the day!

And the process for creating their hand painted and hand embroidered wallcoverings includes so many “hidden” elements and technical skills that all makes such exceptional work possible. ••••• Custom design at this level is an investment, from the investment in time and knowledge that dozens of people have contributed to the process, to the investment of the client’s purchase. Design professionals have a responsibility to understand and share this knowledge—that hours of skilled labor, whether at a computer or with a paintbrush or an embroidery needle, requires fair compensation. Today’s visits and conversations reinforced the absolute need for in-depth product knowledge in order to provide optimal client experiences. ••••• But we’re getting deep, when you’re probably just interested right now in the pretty! So here’s a detail from one the main vignettes in the Fromental showroom, a chinoiserie wallcovering—hand painted and hand embroidered with copper, silver and gold accents. And just one example of how Fromental also works with velvet (more on that later), a single embroidered cushion that makes a strong statement. #decortours  #designinspiration  #everydayextraordinary  #designadventures  #inspirationeverywhere  #textiles  #textileobsession  #embroidery  #wallcoverings  #handpainting  #velvet

✨My biggest take away, You can have all your ducks in a row, but if you aren’t being fulfilled, then you NEED to do life differently.✨

Did you know it’s part of 
MY JOB to work on MYSELF daily?? Before this opportunity I never knew just HOW IMPORTANT it is to fill myself up daily- mind, body and soul. 👉🏻I somehow missed it with the demands of daily life.👈🏻
I always worked my ass off on the outside, even felt accomplished, but somehow felt so 💔AWFUL inside 💔and had no clue how to change these feelings, my thoughts and my actions.🙅🏻‍♀️🚫

✨This. This my friends is how you change it. You take a leap of faith, do something that scares you, trust in yourself, and discover who you REALLY are and who you are meant to be. The rest...it will follow.✨
