Luxe Lapis

Grey Ticking Stripe By SF Girl By Bay, Coral Velvet, Lapis Lanai By Scalamandré

"Lanai is a personal favorite of mine. We found it in the Scalamandré archives and fell in love with its tropical vibe. Lapis Lanai is a unique coloration with its rich blue ground, coral flowers, and accents of aqua and lavender. Grey Ticking Stripe By SF Girl By Bay brings out the purply grey in the vines, and Coral Velvet layers beautifully with the tones in the flower."

Eclectic Warmth

Garden In Ink By The Everygirl, Anni By Christene Barberich, Grey Linen, Grey Aviary By Scalamandré

"Grey Aviary offers a great mix of warm and cool tones. Anni By Christene Barberich picks up on the gold tones, and Garden In Ink By The Everygirl adds an eclectic flair to the mix. Grey Linen gives the scheme depth and contrast."

Island Chic

Green Hopscotch By Clare V., Husk Linen, Mandarin Lanai By Scalamandré

"A multi-color print [offers] a great opportunity to layer patterns and textures of different scales. The happy hue of Green Hopscotch by Clare V. brings out the leafy shades in Mandarin Lanai, and the small scale pattern complements the large-scale floral. Husk Linen adds texture and visual relief to this vibrant scheme."

French Country Classic

Port Cabana Stripe, Bordeaux Linen, French Blue Check, Blue Aviary By Scalamandré

"For a classic 'provençal' look, [try mixing] Blue Aviary with French Blue Check, Port Clarence Stripe, and Bordeaux Linen."

...With A Twist

Red Blocks By Christene Barberich, French Blue Check, Blue Aviary By Scalamandré

"Red Blocks By Christene Barberich adds a contemporary twist and a splash of red to this classic blue and white story."
