I'm in love with Anna French and Thibaut!

Everyone knows Thibaut and Anna French from the UK teamed up with beautiful fabrics, laces and wallpapers.
But now they are offering furniture.......

The furniture will have the beautiful offerings of both with the added treat of wallcoverings........ This duvet fabric blows me out of the water. By Thibaut. Gibralter Embroidery in Blue.

This is a great selection of Anna French' s Ballad Collection. Light and medium weaves of embroidered linens in fabulous colors with a European edge of sophistication......The following images are part of that collection.

I know you are getting sick of me saying this but this is my favorite...Standish Embroidery available in Flax, White and Blue....The flowers are amazing they pick up colors around them. 
 On the white they look lilac in some light.... Amazing!

This is the Arran Embroidery. Big, Fortuny like, only better I think as the background weave is a herringbone........

This is a clever mix of Lace and a contemporary metal table
called Chalice.

Here is Roselli Trellis..... There is a pinkish color way that is to die for.

The Francis Embroidery can go with anything....  

Here is the Lithgow Stripe.

This is Thibault fabric featured on one of their ottomans..... Their new furniture line is fabulous......This is from a new collection Biscayne,

Nope not Lilly Pulitzer, Thibault........

One of their new chairs. Priced Very nicely I might add with a nice selection of finishes........

I can see myself curling up here and love the wall paper.

 Another example of the furniture and a wallpaper coordinating with a previous fabric in this post. I think they are doing a great job!
Now available to the trade as well as our wonderful customers at
Beadboard UpCountry.  Already proving itself to be a favorite!!!!!!

This spring issue of Southern Lady is sophisticated, and packed full of great entertaining ideas and we are featured it it!!!!!!!!!

Here we are at the Bottom of the picture below some purple stuff....Note the Arte Pura Linens and the Juliska Bamboo with their Colette Green Glass mixed with the Arte Italica Amorini Pitcher and dinner plate with the Arte Pura Evento Slipcover in the background.  And on the left the Dolimite "Bustier" pillow with crystal on the Magia bedspread with the crochet option.  They said of our shop,
"Owners of Beadboard UpCountry fill their light and airy space with exquisite home offerings and luxurious Italian linens, creating an oasis of pure beauty that feels miles away from this little Texas Town."

Some beautiful shots of our small town and places to see when the Round Top Antiques fair comes at the end of September......

Love these glasses by Mikasa, Plates by Villeroy and Boch.

A beautiful table tricked up with color.......... Love it!

Another great example of mixing it up..... Juliska Bamboo, with the green dessert plates and these birds and eggs.......FUN!
Thank you Southern Lady!!!!!!!!

Snow in Paris, Sizziling at Arte Pura Spring 2013

This is the NEW new at Arte Pura.  Previewed in Paris last month at Maison et Object.  This is one of three new ensembles introduced there.... This Maggiorana Petticoat dress.  This  is not showing the underlying colored dress that will accompany it in the color of your choice.... Cute no???? 

Next the Rosemarino with cutwork and embroidery, now they have to call this clothing as NO ONE is wearing THESE to bed. This is a sample, they will fine tune some more before sending it out to AP fashion afficianados.

This the Zefferano, a light cotton dress with lace detail.

Here is new bedspread, the Cerfoglio 2.009 doubles as a duvet with coordinating  pillow. All done is a simple tone on tone stripe with ribbon detail.

Here is one of the new colors and trims, From September a thicker lace that resembles a crown or teardrop. The new green color is a softer bluer green like spring called #412 "Linfa Old" they call it "milk and mint".  The new lace on the sheet and the small pillow is the Petal embroidery ..... Small dots with Lily of the Valley (Muguets) and leaves and flowers.... We already have an order for this sight unseen in as a tablecloth border and believe me I am ordering for the shop.

A new simple curtain in Cotton Voile gauzy-like with billowing valance.5.014 Assenzio

A new Pillow with the Teardrop lace in Angelo Old (I think).
with ties

This is a great example of the new Petal Embroidery,  I personally love this, shown here on a tablecloth.
I encourage you to enlarge to see the detail.
I ordered a tablecloth for the shop in this.....Would look great in the middle of a duvet too.

The coordinating Pillow.......

Shown here on Terry towels..... I also love their Linen towels with trim for guest Powder rooms......

Gorgeous new curtain 5.015 Valeriana Look Familiar??????

This is what makes Arte Pura Unique.  The interplay of the laces throughout the tabletop,bedding, curtains, bath and clothing are always evident.

Here we see the other new color Aurora Old, butter with a hint of mustard with the Linfa Old new green on the slipcover.
The bottom tablecloth has the Elegant Lace and the yellow and white runner to the right have the new petal embroidery.

The Candles will also be available in the two new colors and trim.

Some examples of the Linfa Old Green in the bath in terry and linen.

Love this!!!!!!!!!!
