if you're like me and miss the good old days of trading spaces (when alex was the host, not mindy paige david. barf.), you'll remember laurie smith- the super souther, super preppy designer who never made a mistake (you'll remember what that title is from, too). her traditional meets modern style was always a winner with the homeowners and now she's taken that sensibility to hancock fabrics. she produced a nice line of sensible fabrics for designers and designees that includes this fabric, pacesetter, that i dig. it's sorta retro and nifty, i'd like to upholster a small cute piece, like an old ottoman, in it. pacesetter comes in three great colorways and is pretty easy on the purse. so, check out her line here, and see if you can find a way to bring a little old scholl trading spaces to your life.

It's lovely, and as usual, it all matches her hair!
It always matches her hair! :)

Reminds me of the designs of Galbraith and Paul (www.galbraithandpaul.com), except at much nicer price point. Great find.

I always thought Alex seemed like she was drunk.... but you're right it's not like it used to be. I stopped watching when Doug did a "Prison Cell" bedroom with bench made from two toilets!!! WHAT the Heck?!

Great fabrics, though. Laurie's great. Sometimes a little too conservative for me... but that's WAY better than the "Hay on the Wall" room that Hildy (sp?) did!! Good Gravy! (They even had a toddler in that house!)

Seriously, great fabrics. I think the "freer" patterns look interesting. Though, I'd have to see them in person.

Have a great weekend!

If I'm not mistaken, Paige is no longer on the show. The latest commercials tout a brand new show with NO HOSTS.
