All week I’ve been having a mild case of FOMO while I’m home upstate watching the exciting updates from New York Design Week roll in. I had family in town all last week and friends in town this week, so for the first time in 10 years, I handed over the trade show reins to two of our talented writers, Annie and Emma. They’ve been walking the aisles at the Javits Center all weekend, keeping an eye on trends and great new designers, to bring us fresh posts this week. I can’t wait to see what they have to share, but in the meantime, I couldn’t resist posting Katie Deedy’s newest designs at Grow House Grow. She sent me a little sneak peek and I immediately started figuring out just how much of her new Otomi tile I would need to redo the floor in our tiny upstairs bathroom.
Katie’s new collections for spring 2015 include a stunning Otomi pattern cement tile and gorgeous new wallpaper designs, too. The tile is so special I haven’t been able to take my eyes off it. I keep imagining it in all different colorways (deep indigo, pale pink, gold) and how much it would inspire me to actually get down and clean the tiles in our bathroom. I can’t wait to see these in person, but in the meantime, you can check them out and order online right here.
Katie also launched a new wallpaper line, called Codex, inspired by great historical mythology and mystery. I am still a sucker for a cute eye print and I’ll never turn down a good floral, so both of these are on my instant wish list. Katie’s papers always have such a wonderful story behind them and the patterns balance whimsy and sophistication with ease. Annie got to see these in person at ICFF, so I’m anxiously awaiting her report later this week. If you’re stopping by on the public day of ICFF this year, be sure to say hi to Katie and check out these new designs at the Grow House Grow booth, #2546. Until then, stay tuned for our trade show coverage later this week! xo, grace
