With the change of seasons, it is so important to freshen up throughout with a change of fabrics. Just like you, a house is alive and needs to be renewed with fresh looks!

I prefer to layer fabrics for a more luxurious and comfy feel and look. For the master suite, I went with a traditional, white quilted bedspread printed with a subtle floral pattern in shades of pink and an orange throw to go on top. With a beautiful backdrop, it's easy to look good in front of it!

Here's hoping the official arrival of summer also has you enjoying fresh fabrics and looks!

This year the event pulled as many as 90 Porsches, ~130 drivers and passengers, from 10 different PCA regions: Golden Gate, Diablo, Redwood, Sac Valley, Yosemite, Sequoia, Sierra NV, Vegas, Orange Coast, Central Coast.[...] More>>
