The heat of this July has abated, a bit. The world is going haywire, but these last few weeks of August in Brooklyn have been pretty damn pleasant. Still, I find myself yearning for the change of the season. I’m ready for a new color palette, heavier jeans, and some apple pie.

Above are textiles we’re using for a bedroom window seat design in the Bronx. The color scheme here is perfect for the room, but I must admit that the richer hues are inspired by the coming of September.

Pierre Frey’s Nikita design, shown above, will be the main fabric for a French mattress we are creating for this particular window seat nook. The fabric is embroidered linen; the art is beautiful.

Claire de Quenetain is a Belgium-based independent artist whose work includes fabrics, wallpapers, and murals. The combination of colors, shapes, and movement on display here define her work. We’re using several of her prints for throw pillows on the window seat.

We added the golden ochre velvet to the mix as a neutralizer to the bold prints and embroideries. This late August color palette has legs that walk from the bright color fields of summer into the rich tones of September.
