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

Congrats! I have been looking forward to the launch of your line ever since I saw those beautiful curtains on your blog from the Queen Anne's Bouquet.

At this point, I would have to say my favorite is the Live Paisley in Indigo. I would love to use this fabric in my son's nursery who is to be born in January:)

Thanks so much and best of luck to you!

My favorites are Ticking Stripe in Black, Happikat in black, and Filigree Chevron in black and cream!! Congratzs Love it all!!!

Brandi said...

My absolute favorite fabric is Happikat in Kelly Green, though I really love how all your fabrics work together. Will definitely be saving up some money to buy some fabric, then having a professional make me some great pillows, since I don't want to ruin the beautiful fabrics :)

Best of luck,
Brandi

Oh my goodness. I've been so excited about all of your textiles! I would of course love some in my own home! I really love your happikat- especially in green.

autumn said...

you are SUCH an inspiration and i adore your fabrics. i think i would use the fabrics on some pillows on a pair of vintage caned chairs that i am currently dreaming about getting reupholstered.

stanley m said...

Filigree Chevron in Autumn please!

They are all amazing! Congratulations on this momentous event!

mudrick said...

They are all lovely but Fern Star in yellow is my favorite.

The DIY Show Off said...

Congratulations! I'm so excited! :)

amoore said...

The Happikat makes me real happy!

Heidi S. said...

Queen Anne's Bouquet because it reminds me of picking flowers as a kid. They are all quite lovely and romantic!

www.onestorybuilding.com said...

Your post on fabrics and pricing is very detailed and enlightening, Lauren. I may not be able to afford a wall-to-wall installation of $100/yd. fabrics, but a beautiful pillow (or two) in one of your textiles is just the ticket.

Sarah said...

Your Queen Anne is beautiful, but the fern star is so unique. Love them.

Melissa said...

Live paisley in gold is beautiful. It was tough just trying to pick one.

Lisa said...

Oh my - all so lovely. The Fern star is my favorite. I can see using it in my mountain camp bedroom.

Marie said...

Filigre Chevron in Autumn!

Miss Rubio said...

Ginny said...

Congrats Lauren! Ever since you shared glimpses of your fabric designs, I have had a certain fondness for the Queen Anne's Bouquet. Seeing the live version of the plant (along my long runs as I trained for my first half-marathon) made me smile as I reflected as well on your beautiful rendition of this humble flowering plant. Thanks for making my runs more interesting by helping me to notice nature I would have probably ignored!

Nicole @ one half world said...

My favorite is the magnolia print in china blue. I grew up in the South and moved to the Midwest, and I have to say that one of the things I miss the most is the magnolia trees! Lovely fabrics, and congratulations on your new venture!!

Anne said...

I
I love the red paisley and the queen anne's lace, gorgeous!

maggie said...

Almost impossible to pick a favorite from all of those lovely designs. I think the fern star in yellow would be my first choice.
Congratulations on your new venture!

Lauren -HCP said...

Hi Lauren! Your fabrics are all beautiful. As a fellow designer, but on hiatus as a full time mom, I am so excited for your line of textiles. A couple of yards of Queen Anne's Bouquet would make the PERFECT roman shade in my dining room. What an exciting venture for you and your family.

Lauren -HCP said...

Posted about on facebook also!

Christi said...

My favorite is the Ticking Stripe in Aqua!

Elizabeth said...

Honestly, I can't decide between live paisley in dusty blues and queen anne's bouquet. Lovely!

Delightful Dahlia said...

Hi Lauren, if I won this giveaway I'd have a hard time choosing, but ever since we got a little sneak peek a few weeks ago I've loved the Magnolia in yellow, but I also love the Happikat and the filigree chevron. Best wishes on much success with this line.

Rose Hudson said...

Lauren,

Wish the best of luck in your line. I am amazed anew when I see the beauty in nature: the shapes, the colors of the seasons, the blending of sky and horizon, the order and variation. All that to say, I appreciate and glory in your creations. A personal favorite is Fern Star in Moss.

Best, Shannon

Erin said...

The paisley and filigree patterns are beautiful, but it's so hard to pick just one. Your fabrics made my heart swell, I love them so much.

rdesigns said...

I would love to choose many, but f I have to, I'll pick wild chicory in olive. It would be beautiful on my great grandmother's rocking chair that needs a new cover!

bungalow said...

Such an accomplishment, Lauren. I've been following your blog for a while now - I am so impressed! The fabrics are beautiful. I would love to win the paisley in dusty blues, or small wild chicory in faded celadon.

I love woodblock prints, Arts & Craft style, and the handmade look. These are definitely "me".

Congratulations. Well done!

bungalow said...

P.S. Where did you get your dress? Love it.

Kathy said...

I really love them all but especially Cirtangles in ocean and Live Paisley in turquoise.

tada! shop said...

Wild Chicory in Celadon, just pinned a bunch of the fabrics too.
