Color from CANOVAS

Summer calls for BLUE, don't you think?
In addition to that auto-Cool color, I've been drawn to some samples I've been getting from MANUEL CANOVAS. The palette and presentation from CANOVAS is always a seduction of sorts.

Lavender, Lilac-colors that are chameleon like.

The fabric VOYAGE EN CHINE is a celebration of color and design. The Canovas brand is noted for large brilliant cottons- 

Voyage En Chine on the curtain panels.

  Remember these rooms I waxed over in Canovas' once home? 
the post here.

...pattern within the pattern, soft sketched faces, Isn't it beautiful?

I'm drawn to bold pattern and COLOR- Remember this fabric? 

It's now hanging in my dining room and once was the inspiration for my rooms in a previous home.
It's another Manuel Canovas-Marie Amelie-

I'll never tire of it.
here is the post Curtain Call, all about the resurrection of these curtains into the dining room.

COLOR-it's what I am honing in on NOW.



  1. Gaye I am absolutely in love with this color palette! Canovas a genius!

  2. I love it--especially after years of gray and beige!

  3. Lord have mercy! The last fabric (discontinued!)

  4. Love, love, love all those fabrics - beautiful!

  5. Perfect for summer! If I squint at the first photo, it almost looks like a garden full of big flowers, dahlias, probably. The yellow room in your 2010 Canova post hit the spot. I just picked up a handful of yellow paint samples this weekend. Time to make some changes to those all-white living room walls! Thanks for another inspiring post, Gaye.

  6. In antiquity Canovas designed some downmarket bed linens for a mass producer, in a palette of cream, camel and gray; could have been from the old Jaeger playbook, if that rings a bell. Anyway I found these sheets to be irresistible, and not to give undue credit to one's own contributions, to very lively others as well. By the way I didn't notice any beige in that mix, but I cannot claim to be a specialist.
