Interior Designer Textiles-Sylvie and Mira-According to LiLu


Interior Designer Textiles-Sylvie and Mira

When I was a college student studying interior design, I had a dream to one day design a textile line for interiors and that dream has been realized through my textile line Sylvie and Mira. It's especially dear to my heart because I named it for my daughters, Sylvia and Miranda. Recently, I collaborated with Erin Francois from Francois Et Moi, I designed the rug and pillows, she styled them beautifully in her home. If you didn't see the story on Instagram! Check it out @francoisetmoi is her handle! If you're not familiar...click on the little circle that says Sylvie and Mira.
It was a dream come true to see how Erin used my textiles in her handmade modern home! A home with warm and style. Seeing what other designers do with the textiles I designed is part of the thrill of having the textiles out in the world.

I wanted to design a fabric and rug line with a fresh and whimsical point of view that would feel like the joy I saw in my daughters faces when they were young. Vibrant color is a signature of the line. It isn't all bold though. Neutral colors balance some of the more exuberant hues and classics like navy and taupe are available also.

Although I dreamt of designing a interior designer textile line when I was in college. It took quite a few years to realize my dream. The initial patterns came to my mind in a flood a few years ago. If you want to see the sketch to painting to fabric progress you can take a look at this post I wrote early in the process.
It has been a joyful journey with shows in New York (see post) , and rugs shown at High Point market (see post). I've learned a lot along the way and have so enjoyed seeing my rugs show up in homes and hotels! My fabrics used on bar stools, window treatments, sofas and pillows. I can't wait to see what 2019 brings to Sylvie and Mira
