Designer Spotlight Sunday: Laura Gunn

Good Morning Sunshine!
That's how I feel about this post.  
Laura Gunn's Garden Wall Collection is exactly that. 
So without further adieu: 
Sunshine and happiness to all this Sunday!

Hello!  Laura Gunn here.  It’s a treat to chime in on Kathy’s lovely blog. I’ve got some new pictures to share with you, as well as some project inspiration for my newest line, Garden wall.
This line has been so much fun to work with.  In fact, I love these prints so much that they have caused all sorts of unnecessary redecorating.  (Unnecessary redecorating is a bit of an addiction for me.) 

You may have spotted my daughter Lily’s bedroom makeover on my blog.  These are a few of my favorite shots.  Those curtains on the side of her bed actually close and she can snuggle up in her cozy nest.  I’m doing all I can to mold a fellow fabric junky.  

It’s already paying off!

The chair is my favorite.  I’m pretty sure that anything would look better with hot pink piping.  To read more about the quilt, wall panels, etc., read here.
Isn’t she sweet!  She’s not mine, but I try to borrow her as much as possible.  This print, Wee Spring, was a watercolor.  It’s the first time I’ve used a watercolor for a textile design, but definitely not the last.  I love how delicate and whimsical it turned out.  Read more about the shirt pattern here. 
Here’s my latest decorating project.  This shelf in my dining room is one of the first things you see when you walk into my house.  The dark wood behind my dishes was bumming me out.  But THIS makes me happy--Almost as happy as bright yellow chairs with this funky print on the seat.  Ahhh, yellow--It’s like the sun is shining from inside my house.
The new chairs and new wall made me want a new table cloth.  (Here we see the domino affect of my redecorating addiction.)  This motif was inspired by a vintage table cloth that I love.  I used my Painter’s Canvas prints for the main flower and my Gypsy Vine print for the embellishing flowers.  I’ll be sharing the template for the applique on my blog.
