Tossing around ideas

Since I wanted my blog to be about me trying to break into (and hopefully succeeding) the design world I decided that perhaps I should speak more about design in addition to posting about my normal everyday wants, likes, adventures and random babbling.

I figured in order to start off with a bang I would interview one of my favorite women in the design world. She is a huge source of inspiration for me. I would love to be her when I go up ( Too bad we are practically the same age so I better speed up) I'm going to be posting the interview tomorrow morning, but I wanted to give you a clue as to who it is. This lady goes banana's over toss pillows. When I saw the latest product (featured below) that inspired this post I immediately thought of her.

Two of my greatest loves are handbags and fabric. I have quite the addiction to handbags. I would love to have my own room for them. Don't worry hubby. They don't break the bank as most of them are thrift store finds. I also have an office full of fabric, but I can't even sew. Right now they are being utilized as a place to stack all of my ribbon. I'm waiting to have someone pity me and show me how to work my sewing machine.

1154 LILL matches up my two loves and makes me a happy lady. I first set my eyes on 1154 LILL during a trip to Boston to visit my sisters. We were walking down Newbury Street and during our window shopping spree I saw this store front:

When you set foot into 1154 LILL you are meet with your choices of fabric and a variety of handbag styles to choose from. You can pick different fabric for the inside liner, outside, handle etc. I recently received an email from 1154 LILL and saw that they have now ventured out to home decor. You can now go online and order Toss Pillows

You can pick from 4 different styles and make numerous fabric combination. I took a little break at work today and had fun making up different pillows. Here are some of my combinations:

These colors are all featured in my Living Room:

I'm loving the purple trend in fashion and now you can accessorize in it as well:

This brown numbers makes me want to curl up with it by the fire place:

The pillows also come without the ruffle, but who doesn't love a ruffle.

Enjoy! You will be entertained for hours with all the different combinations.
