P&DWindowFashionsAmrapali-from-Designers-Guild

We’d like to introduce you to the latest addition to the P&D Window Fashions Fabric Collection: British Floral Fabrics.

As you may or may not know, P&D Window Fashions happens to have a very limited number of floral prints in our fabric collection. This is not by accident. Years of studying client and customer reaction to certain textiles have directed us to include only those fabrics that will generate joyful, positive responses.

P&DWindowFashionspresentsDesignersGuildThe selection process for us is part science, part art, and a whole lot of intuition. The science part involves product content and the manufacturing process. We want to make sure we are including only the best quality products, that are manufactured without toxic chemicals, and that are completely earth friendly. We’ll be darned if we have to display one of those awful ” Products sold here are known to cause cancer” or whatever other awful illness plaques anywhere in our stores or workrooms. The science part alone keeps many otherwise beautiful fabrics out of our collection.

The art part of the selection process involves the use of color, scale, design, and execution. As artists, we have an intimate understanding of color, how it behaves and how it works in homes.

P&DWindowFashionsDesignersGuildmaxresdefaultIt’s also important that colors reflect an aesthetic that is pleasing to the eye, that patterns are to an appropriate scale for things for which the fabrics themselves will be used for in the home.

Finally, the fun part is in the intuition part of the process. This is where we work with that “gut feeling”. Where we take our years of experience working with people in their most intimate setting: their private home, and utilize that knowledge to make future clients happy as well.

It may sound silly, but everything that we provide will create an emotional connection with our customers. Some customers are more expressive than others about it, but we can always tell when we’ve reached that joyful point in the design process. That’s when we know that we are ready to start creating.

So anyway, that brings us back full circle to our British Floral Fabrics.  These prints are unlike anything we’ve ever offered, and unlike anything we’ve seen offered elsewhere. The florals that one most often sees are usually very traditional, in small to medium scales, and in “safe” color-ways. Backgrounds are usually a beige or pastel color, almost never white.

So as you may have guessed, this new addition to the collection is the opposite of all that. These colors are no shrinking violets ( sorry, could not resist ). Rich, pure, bold colors, on clean crisp backgrounds. The scale? BIG. These gorgeous works of art are meant to be seen and enjoyed. Perfect for rooms that can handle a feminine touch. The girl cave, office, garden room, guest room, etc.

We’ve only had the fabrics a few days, and already we’ve found delicious ways to enjoy the prints. Take a look at the lamp shade below. ( Yes, we do those too!)

P&D WIndow Fashions Jayma Mays and Adam Campbell 2

Jayma Mays and Adam Campbell are perhaps two of the most charismatic, lovely people you could ever encounter.

The lovely couple invited P&D into their newly renovated modern home to dress windows that no traditional window covering could style properly. The windows are designed in adjoining columns, four in a row. Their function is to provide a modern aesthetic, and to allow much welcomed natural light into the home. However, there was one little thing that just wasn’t perfect about the windows: they faced directly into the neighbor’s living room.

P&D Window Fashions Jayma Jones Adam Campbell

Jayma and Adam wanted something very minimal, with clean lines and not too much in the way of operating hardware. Something that could provide privacy from below, while still allowing natural light into the house.

P&D happens to specialize in just such requests. We custom manufacture specialized solutions for the dressing of windows. Our Bottom-Up Roller Shades were a perfect fit for the couple. They are minimal, beautiful, install and provide privacy for below, allow natural light to enter from above, and the hardware is just a center cord and pulley.  So now they can enjoy their windows, and privacy for both them and the neighbors.

The house renovation was featured in an article on Dwell Magazine.  See our shades, and the rest of the home on Dwell:

P&DGroupIncPresentsMatthew-Williamson-Samana-Collection-with-Osborne-and-Little-450x600

I begin this latest P&D blog entry with a confession.

You see, my primary talent, I’d say as a designer, lies in the translation of complex notions and ideas into decipherable, easily palatable design.  This strength, has focused the design direction P&D has taken very much since it’s inception. Minimal, beautiful, simple interiors that are comfortable, aesthetically clean, and focused. I confess that after more than a decade of minimalist interiors, I would like to liven things up a bit.

In my search for the most beautiful finishes, textures and colors for minimalist interiors, I’ve had to turn inward to create things that did not exist. P&D has had to formulate complex colors to give walls more interest than what regular paints can provide. We’ve designed textiles in somewhat the same way, to make certain colors that current manufacturing conditions could not produce, happen. The same goes for textures. All in all, I’m proud to say we’ve perfected the art of simplicity in our now 20 years in business. We do it very well, we do it beautifully.

P&DGroupIncMatthewWilliamson

Now and again there is a little powder room, or there is a guest room, a library, a hallway, somewhere in a house that could really benefit from something totally unexpected, something fun. Something that cannot be achieved with paints. This is where I turn to Matthew Williamson. Matthew is the iconic UK fashion designer responsible for some of the best patterning on textiles anywhere. He’s a rock star in Europe, and my new favorite source for wallpapers and fabrics.

P&DGroupIncMatthewWilliamson2

Matthew Williamson has a beautiful collection of wallpapers and fabrics with UK manufacturer: Osborne & Little. The collection is quite manageable, and very pretty. Just the right place to go to for when just a bit, or quite some more pattern is needed in a room.  Sometimes good design calls for something more than paint, it calls for beautiful pattern. The Osborne & Little collection offers tasteful, wonderful designs for these purposes.

P&D is pleased to introduce the entire Osborne & Little collection, including the works from Matthew Williamson, to our collection this month. Come in or schedule for an in-home design consultation to experience the Matthew Williamson for Osborne & Little collection in your own home.

For more on Matthew Williamson, visit his instagram account. I know you’ll fall in love with his charismatic personality. You’ll also not want to miss checking out Osborne & Little’s instagram account.

 

 


P&DGroupPresentsCharlotteMoss

NY based interior designer, Charlotte Moss, is one of our favorite taste-makers.

Her style is effortless, beautiful. and always stylish. While leaning to traditions, Charlotte does have a way of keeping things current. The room above is a perfect example. It’s romantic, whimsical, with traditional elements, and yet – it’s contemporary.

P&DGroupIncPresentsCharlotte_Moss_Fall2015

 

Charlotte Moss has teamed up once again with fabric house giant, Fabricut, to release a brand new fabric collection. Her prior collection with Fabricut, was quite popular with P&D Window Fashions customers. We had quite a number of gorgeous drapery and custom bedding orders with Charlotte’s fabrics.  With what we’ve seen of the newest collection, we expect to see yet another run of beautiful fabrics gracing both our showroom and workrooms.

What we like about this newest release of prints and solids, is the “coolness” of the palette. The colors are so clean, so crisp, so relevant to today’s aesthetics. Charlotte has done it again with the release of these new fabrics.
