Postcards from Paradise

Warm gentle breezes and lazy vacations parked under a palm define this side of paradise for most of us. Take a trip of the imagination to sunny worlds far away, and dream. Those dreams can become reality and when you get there, remember to bring a little piece of heaven home to hold onto.

Santorini Greece;  home of the ancient Minoan civilization, which gave rise to the mythological lost city of Atlantis. This volcanic island on the glittering teal blue Aegean is possibly one of the most beautifully romantic places in the world. Hot baked whites and desert clay, vivid color with the intensity of the sun; this is the desert by the sea.




Patterns: Moroccan Spot (GE3618) Geometrics by Ashford House, Bali Leaves (AT7052) Tropics by Ashford House, Belle of the Ball (GC8801) Global Chic by Waverly.

Havana Cuba; the Paris of the Antilles, is a 500 year old port of call which summons fantastic  images of  pirates, rum and cigars in the heart of Old Havana. The once vibrant and exotic pre-revolution playground of the rich and famous is poised on the edge of a new age of luxury as a resort destination. Now filled with nostalgic vintage Americana and abundant retro style, experience the charm of the Caribbean in weathered pattern and soft wind worn color, before it’s gone.


Patterns: Bamboo Trellis (AT7079) Tropics by Ashford House, Homeycomb (GE3641) Geometrics by Ashford House, Chunky Floral (EB2060) Vibe by Carey Lind Designs.

Cancun Mexico; The Throne of Snakes, was once a sleepy fisherman’s island surrounded by undiscovered shores, sitting just north of the Riviera Maya has now been transformed into one of the most visited resort areas of Mexico. Embraced by the second largest coral reef in the world and kissed by cooling trade winds boasts a pastel palette of soft sand, flamingo pinks and cooling crème de menthe all offset by brilliant Caribbean blue. It truly is an invitation few could refuse.

Find your own little piece of heaven inspired by the patterns from paradise, and live the dream all the year through.
