Textiles Thursday: Marcus Design


 I am excited to introduce you to my newest daily read, Nancy from Marcus Design.
I was first introduced to Nancy when reading about her incredible DIY draper Ikea hack.


I have been hooked ever since.
Lucky for us, Nancy agreed to show us some of her favorite textiles from her home!

 I am honored and thrilled to be here today and I'm sending a big hug and thank you to Danielle for asking me to participate in her lovely series! I love bold prints and colorful textiles, especially with a heavy does of texture, they just liven up my home and make me smile every time I walk by.

Last summer I added a touch of turquoise to my living room and this pretty shade has done wonders for my space. First, a lovely little chair with a fabulous velvet pattern graced the corner nook {the chair was a HomeSense/HomeGoods score!}. I paired it with a glam silk pillow in chocolate brown and the contrast of the thick texture in the chair with a bit of shine on the pillow is perfection.



Next I picked up a little Morrish tile print to mix it ip a little. I love the Moroccan vibe and these pillows were a real find at $20 a piece from HomeSense:


And finally, I think I will never tire of Kelly Wearstler's Imperial Trellis! I just love the texture on this heavy linen. This colorway is Parchment/Midnight and works well with my bedding from the House & Home line at The Bay.





So there you have it! A few of the textiles that bring me joy everyday. Next up I have plans for some curtain panels and Roman blinds with a Greek-key inspired motive!! Thank you again to Danielle for inviting me to share pieces of my home.


I love her use of color, texture, and pattern.
Imperial Trellis fabric is also a favorite of mine and I think it is perfect in her bedroom.
I also can't wait to see her new Roman blinds.

Thank so much Nancy!

Also, I am guest posting over at Modern Jane today sharing some of my favorite things from my home! I'll see you over there.

  15. Thank you every one for your super kind words!! And thanks Danielle for the chance to participate, it was so much fun.
    Answers to a couple of the questions: The white cabinet was yet ANOTHER HomeSense/HomeGoods find! I know, it sounds like I live there right?
    And the Imperial Trellis can be purchased through any designer or on many designer fabrics websites. You can even find it on Etsy from time to time!
