I’m going to blame it on Grace. After all, she was the one who pointed out the weaving in Sarah Ryhanen’s office. You can barely see it in the photo, but it has sent me on a weaving quest. I became completely obsessed with this way-out-of-my-budget textile hanging. Since I’ve been coming up empty handed, I decided to go through our sneak peek archives and see what wall textiles I could come up with. I love the idea of hanging any sort of fabric on the wall — it makes everything feel a bit softer. As for Grace, she has to listen to me complain about my sad lack of a beautiful textile hanging every day, and that’s probably punishment enough. Luckily, she’s a good sport. — Amy Azzarito
