Lauren Liess Textiles Launch & Giveaway!

I'm so excited- the Pure Style Home online shop is UP!  wahooooo!!






If you have some time, I'd love for you to check it out:  http://www.purestylehome.co/   (And be careful because it's ".co" not com.  )  And, going live later today, if you click on the top right "SHOP" link at the top of this blog, it will also lead you to the store.  If you're reading this in email form, and you want to access the shop from the blog, just go to the blog itself (http://www.purestylehome.blogspot.com/) and click on the top right SHOP link.





Included in the shop in the FAQs and POLICIES sections, you can read all about the fabrics & their uses, how to open a trade account if you're an interior designer, and how to order.  (it's easy! :)  On each fabric page, I described what I was thinking when I designed the fabrics & a little bit about what's behind them.



An important thing to think about when looking at our fabrics is that I washed many of the fabrics in the photos to give them a softer, more timeworn look.  I created the designs with this in mind & it's how I envision people using the line, but it's really up to you whether you wash the fabrics or not.  Some people like a crisper look, while others prefer the softer look with a bit of patina.  I have used them both ways for different clients, depending upon their preferences.  Washing the fabric, softens it and slightly fades the patterns.  Many of my patterns have been intentionally mottled to give the feeling of age, but washing them adds another layer of that timeworn quality, which I love.  It changes the patterns with darker backgrounds the most because the fading is more apparent.  For example, I washed this fabric below, multiple times on the "heavy" cycle of the wash with towels to roughen it and left it wrinkled to give it this look:




Those patterns with light backgrounds aren't as "aged" by the wash and it's hard to even tell the difference between washed & unwashed:


I'm thinking about doing a duvet cover for out bed in one of the fabrics with the light backgrounds...  The fabrics do not come washed so that part is up to you.... Just something to think about. 


ANYWAY, to celebrate, we're doing a giveaway!!  There will be two winners and each winner will receive 2 yards of a fabric of their choice each.  (A $240 value each)  I decided upon 2 yards because it's good amount for a couple of pillows, a body pillow or for framing fabrics like I did in this project a while back. 


{Filigree Chevron in Blue}

To enter the giveaway, just head on over to the Pure Style Home shop and come back to the blog & leave a comment in the comments section saying which is your favorite fabric pattern.  Be sure to leave your email address too so I can get in touch with you if you win.

You can get extra chances to win the giveaway if you:
-tweet about it or
-mention it on facebook
-or mention it on your blog. 

(For a total of 4 possible entries)  Just make sure that if you tweet / facebook / or blog about it,  you leave additional comments in the comments section for your additional entries. :)


I'll announce the {randomly chosen} winner Friday.



Good luck and thank you so much for coming along with me on this journey to getting the fabric line up & running.  I never would have had the confidence or energy to do this if it weren't for so many of you, encouraging me & just being there.  I really appreciate it & just knowing you're reading does more for me than I can even describe.  Thank you.   

Here's the link to the new shop: Pure Style Home Shop


xoxo, Lauren

I loved reading all the little stories with the fabrics. It amazes me that you could design these and have them so perfectly reflect YOU. I don't know if I could do something that summarizes me so well. I am soooo impressed. And thrilled for you!

My favorite today is the filagree chevron in black and oatmeal, for pillows to go with the new sofa I am hoping to buy in January.

Love!

Cecilia said...

Having seen them in person, I DO love the washed look and feel of the linen fabrics (i.e. Live Paisley in Turquoise). My favorite is a tough call. Overall it's the HappIkat in Navy/Pink, but I do love the Circtangles and Squircles.

crisangsteninteriors.com said...

My favorite is still the "Live Paisley" that I blogged about late Sunday night. I was gone all day yesterday and only just had time to look at your new line! So in love with everything you do, congrats on the fabric line! Link to my post: http://www.crisangsteninteriors.com/blog/2011/11/lauren-liess-textile-launch/

sjdesign said...

Hi Lauren, I love the fabrics and was all excited to order them after seeing the previews on your blog.Sure enough, I adore the fabric. You have SO much talent and flair for the capturing the classic, easy elegant look I love Unfortunately,after spending a moment or two in your online shop, I experienced some pretty severe sticker shock. I had hoped for something a little more accessible to the average homeowner. The clients I work with couldn't do $120/yd. Heck, I can't do it for my own home.Is this a price point you're comfortable with using in your own home? I respect your views and advice a lot so I'm curious to know the thinking behind your choices.Sincerely, Susan

JennyBC said...

Happikat in fresh blue or the paisley in gold. Both are lovely! Congrats on the new line.

Leigh said...

Love the shop, Lauren. Your patterns are all beautiful, but I think I like Filagree Chevron in Blue best.

rachel a said...

live paisley in turquoise- dig it.

Melissa said...

Yay!!! I love the Live Paisley and the Chevron! It has been fun to be the fabric progression. Congrats on it all coming to fruition!

Oh my word! I love this fabric!It's hard to pick a favorite, but I really like Queen Anne's Lace, Wild Chicory and Live Paisley. Sigh...

Marie-Claude said...

Hello Lauren
I love all your fabrics. Any of them would be perfect in the 225 year-old farm that my husband and I are renovating: your designs really inpisre us! I'd be happy if I could get the fabric shown here in this beautiful picture of you and your husband: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-AlpE_KDaQ4E/TpTZi7Z1OTI/AAAAAAAAJuw/lgl5JFcESDU/s640/Norman_11029LL_1094_web.jpg

Question:

Sanders Family said...

Congratulation on a HUGE accomplishment! I think I would have to choose Happikat in Fresh Blue but it is such a tough decision because all of the fabrics are fabulous!

llilli said...

oh, i love the fabrics. my favorites (today) are live paisley and queen anne's bouquet. gorgeous.

Meredizzle said...

I don't think my comment went through so here is my second try...

Love them all but queen anne's lace would be my pick because it reminds me of my mom! She has no qualms about pulling over on the highway to pick some.

April said...

Wild chicory, wild chicory, wild chicory! So, so pretty. And the filigree chevron-what a clever take on an established pattern. Best of luck to you and your beautiful, sweet family.

Becca {Lowlife Couture} said...

SCBlount said...

Congrats!!! How very exciting!!!
Well, I just got married in May and have been working my way through painting and redecorating the marital estate all summer and fall. At the moment the task at hand is window treatments. This project is taking probably the longest, especially because I want to find a perfect patter that will make a statement. If I didnt have a budget, the Filigree Chevron in Blue would be the TICKET. I have been VYING for this print and have pictures of it clipped. However, the purse strings have kept it tacked to my corkboard. It matches all our new bedroom linens in the most perfect way imaginable!

Jana Miller said...

congratulations...your fabric is lovely

Tracey said...

I like the chevron and happikats the best. But I love so many and all the colors are beautiful! Congratulations on your launch.

Jennifer Gooch said...

I love almost all of the fabric!! I Love them ALL! I am due with our first baby in June and pillow's would a great touch in many of the fabrics!! My favorite for little kitchen window's would be: Queen Anne's Bouquet - By the Yard

Best of luck!

the-marrying-type.com said...

So in awe of the finished product...lots of time and energy well spent! Happikat in fresh blue is my fave but I adore them all!

R. said...

I would go for the Happikat in olive. I have a living room that I am starting from scratch and would start with that fabric on some pillows.

tag said...

They are all SO beautiful and unique! I love the happikat in olive, live paisley in turquoise and the queen anne's bouquet- way too many good choices :)

Sarah Cruze Designs said...

Lauren, thank you for your well thought out post! I admire your courage and tenacity to launch your online shop! I love all of your textiles, but if I have to choose two... it would have to be the Happikat and the Pierced Porcelain. Way to go!!!

Rebecca said...

I do enjoy your blog. I agree that the right pillow fabric can go a long way towards making a room special. At my budget range that is one of the few ways I can use pricer fabrics.

Nancy said...

This is a beautiful segway from your blog, to your website, to your shop and launch of your own product line... YOU ARE VERY INSPIRATIONAL, and are motivating us to go for our dream! Thanks for all you do and I love your textiles...especially " pierced porcelain "gray, with the greek key border!!!!

Stefanie said...

These are so gorgeous. I particularly love the filigree chevron patterns - it adds a unique twist on the traditional chevron, making it look softer somehow.

If I were to win i would like your "Live Paisley in Olive and Pink" and "Pierced Porcelain in Olive". Those are my favorites! :)

Good job and congratulations! And thank you for the give away as well! :) Oh, and by the way, the fern textile...I love it. Is it yours too? kmajohansson@msn.com

Congratulations!!! They are all so beautiful. I especially love the ticking stripe in beige and the small chicory in denim.

Kimberly said...

These are so beautiful and it's been exciting for me as a reader following your journey. I love the filigree chevron but I think the magnolia in orange is fabulous. Good luck to you.

Leah Moss said...

Lauren!!! Every one of them is fabulous!!!! I especially love that they all have a story and a meaning to you. I agree with everyone else that choosing a favorite is near impossible. BUT for my own home I would love a little live paisley in antique beige or wild chicory in black

Such exquisite designs! I love the black and oatmeal queen Anne's lace with the black and white ticking.
Beautiful work, Lauren.

Shared it on facebook, too. Now I'm really loving "Live Paisley"... ahhh, they are all so awesome! :)

paula said...

Absolutely gorgeous fabrics. Well worth the $$! I have to say it was nearly impossible to pick one. I think I like the happikat in fog best...or maybe it's the queen anne's bouquet in black and oatmeal. Really tough choice! paula :)

Brooke said...

How can I pick just one?!!! The yellow fern star is awesome..also love the happikats and marigolds...and the chevrons!!! hahahaha
Good luck on your new venture!!

Congratulations on your new textiles! I love them all! My favorite is the Queen Anne in Celadon! I love the drapes in the picture, it shows the Queen Anne's geometric pattern really well!
