With a monster of a snow storm bearing down on the city today I've spent the morning inside going through fabric samples for a client's playroom. We long ago settled on China Sea's Aquarius in a bold turquoise/brown combination for the drapes and loved the print so much that we added it to the bookcases. The bright color and rich graphics add a playful punch to the room and lightens up the sofa, which is covered in a rich chocolate chenille. We still needed something to tie the room together; a fun vertical print for sofa pillows and two small stools.  I wanted to try to match the turquoise but that proved nearly impossible until I found Allegra Hicks Kali-Groundworks at Lee Jofa yesterday. The prints are perfect together sharing the same quirky blue hue and fun, whimsical vibe. Mission accomplished!
