It's Been Quite A Year! Making the Ordinary, Extraordinary...

It's Been Quite A Year! Making the Ordinary, Extraordinary...

 

OhWooHoo, we survived 2019 and better yet we are going strong into 2020! What started out as a walk on the beach has evolved into a yearlong journey of designing coastal-inspired fabrics for the interior design world, subscribing to the adage, “Do what you love and the rest will follow.” Well, we love “making stuff” so here we are, back at it in 2020. Coastal Meets Cozy continues...

As Cottage Style Magazine captured with the help of stylist Karin Lidbeck-Brent, photographer Joyelle Westand writer Jennifer Blaise Kramer:

Design No. Five, Beth’s new textiles company, showcases fabrics that perfectly complement her interiors – a colorful, subtle nod to the sea without screaming beach house.  The sustainable, durable pillows and by-the-yard fabrics began with a walk on the beach, collecting native sea creatures – think skate eggs, mermaid’s purse, and horseshoe crabs – which Beth convinced her designers to draw.  Using her home as a test lab, the strange, enchanted sea-life patterns popped up in every room on duvets, pillows, and upholstery.

Laughing Gull Hill, the home of Beth and Phil Odence is also the studio for Design No. Five. We have truly discovered that our 100% Libeco linen ground-cloth and eco-friendly printed fabrics are kid and pet friendly. Dexter the family (and company) pug has full rein over every available seat and there isn't a DN5 pillow he doesn't love!

Even more designs will be released in the next few months - so stay tuned.  Sign up  for our newsletter so you don't miss out. Look for the pop-up sign up form on our website's home page, we'd love to have you as part of our design family. After all the more the merrier! Bold new colors and enlarged patterns are offered in our 2020 Spring Collection. Inspired by our gardens at Laughing Gull Hill, available now on our website.
