fabrics; camilla david textiles

Rarely do floral fabrics do it for me. I love flowers and have tiny arrangements all over my home, but most floral patterns tend to be a tad too feminine for my decor style. That is until I came across fabrics by Camilla David Textiles.

Owner, Camilla David and her lovely fabrics were introduced to me by my friend and textile designer Nandini. {Nandini is part of Camilla’s design team}. Camilla’s fabrics reflect her charming personality and her great eye for detail. I was instantly drawn to each of their designs. Her fabrics include embroidered, hand-screened and crewelwork patterns that have a mix of vintage and contemporary feel to them. The designs are soft yet sophisticated, chic and yet cheerful. Inspiration for Camillas’s designs comes from growing up in a house full of gorgeous arrangements of tulips, peonies and roses. She is also a member of two garden clubs and loves to decorate her home with lovely arrangements.

Camilla was generous enough to let me borrow her fabric swatches for a few days and I have to say it was hard to give her binder back. I had so much fun imagining how fabulous they would look in my home. Each sequence of designs is perfect for upholstering, cushions or drapes. Now all I have to do is score a set of Louis XV chairs to re-upholster using Camilla’s fabrics. 😉

In Washington, DC you can find them at the J. Lambeth showroom in Washington Design Center, and at the D&D building in New York. The fabrics are also available in select cities around the US, and you get the list of locations here. I will be featuring some more of her designs soon, so until then take a look at their website.
