The Blue Whale

Monday was a fabulous day at the Pacific Design Center. So many showrooms, so little time. If only it were closer to home. I barely touched the Green Building.

The Blue Whale was six levels of heaven, but who would have guessed that my first stop of the day would have been my most inspiring stop, David Sutherland. I am not sure if it was the cheery dog trotting through the store that put a smile on my face, or all the wonderful linen textiles with a subtle sheen of silver metallic, but Spring was definitely in the air. The outdoor furniture with Perennials fabrics made me want to plop down, put up my feet and order an umbrella drink. Unfortunately, there was no bar in site. I am definitely a fan of the Perennials. The quality is so fabulous that you could use it indoors, truly.

The show stopper for me was this subtle yet sheik fur area rug. And if you’re thinking of the overused cow hide, your wrong. I didn’t have a change to ask what fur it was, but this was no cow I’d ever met and it was almost as soft as rabbit. The small stitched tiles definitely indicated longevity and little shedding with such a supple fur.  I could spend hours on this rug. My birthday is coming up and if anyone is wondering what to surprise me with, here’s a hint (my husband will be surprised too and not in the same way):
