I feel honored to be interviewed on the Dear Handmade Life podcast today! In our hour long interview, I talk about my creative journey at Cotton & Flax, and share how I think about marketing a creative business beyond posting on social media.
Thrilled to see Balboa fabric featured in Love Patchwork & Quilting Magazine this month! Modern quilt artisan Erin Kroker sewed up a gorgeous quilt using all Balboa fabric, which is prominently featured in issue 73 of Love Patchwork & Quilting.
The sewing pattern for this quilt, which is called “Take Flight,” is only available in this issue of the magazine — nowhere else! If you want to sew your own, you’ll have to grab a copy of the magazine.…
I’ve been finding so much inspiration in books lately! Maybe it’s my brain rebelling against all the work-related screen time, but lately I’ve been spending every spare moment in the studio poring over design books. One new favorite arrived at my door this week, just a few days before it’s official release! The Lonny Home is a coffee-table-worthy compendium of beautiful modern homes, and it’s been inspiring me to take a fresh look at my own decor choices at home.…

I’m in the season of life where every summer is filled with weddings. I’ve been lucky to travel all over the country to attend some pretty memorable wedding receptions (and after-parties).
I’ve noticed that lots of my friends have not signed up for traditional wedding registries. It might be a generational turn towards prioritizing experiences over things (a typical Millenial stereotype) or the reality that many couples live together for years before getting married. Regardless, it seems like many of my friends already bought that Kitchen-Aid mixer one winter when they got obsessed with making every recipe from the Tartine cookbook… so what else could I get for my favorite couple that will help them start their next chapter together?…
It’s always such a treat to see how interior designers style my pieces in their client’s homes, and this beauty is no exception! Emily Henderson featured Cotton & Flax throw pillows in her gorgeous Portland House project, specifically in the dreamy media room, which included a built in wet bar and a walnut ping pong table with a leather net (!!!). My pillow added a pop of modern pattern to the gorgeous linen sofa, such an inviting spot to curl up and watch Netflix for an hour or three.
I love the pallette that Emily chose for this space. Golden yellow is one of my all time favorite colors (I find it to be a classic color that doesn’t look dated), and combined with gorgeous grey blues it just sings.
