Haute House – Marble…and a New Fabric Line

Opulent Marble
This week we are talking about the luxe marble print that is both so recognizable and yet versatile. It can be layered with other prints, bold colours, or completely on its own, to give any outfit or room a sophisticated, polished look! If your style tends to be a bit edgy or modern, go for high contrasting colours with heavier line weights, and for a more subtle, elegant feel, find a print with  daintier veins in monochromatic tones.
Whichever way you want to cut it, these pieces make the perfect addition to any wardrobe, party, or household, hoping to add a little drama and a lot of luxury!

Haute House – Graphic Florals

“Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.”
Though it might not be the first time we’ve seen florals trending, this latest version of bold and graphic floral prints freshen up this season and put a bold twist, on a classic we have all come to appreciate. Though often considered ‘pretty’, ‘girlie’, and ‘whimsical’, the florals we are talking about are luxe, modern, and larger than life! These prints are able to stand alone, or can be paired beautifully juxtaposed next to a graphic stripe or bright colour.
Regardless of how much or little you add, these printed products pack a big punch of design inspiration, and can easily breathe some fresh air into your existing look.
