It’s always a designer’s preogative to mix a small scale pattern with the larger prints to add color, texture and interest. This Hunt Club Houndstooth in Terra Cotta is one of Krista’s favorite cotton fabrics; and a perfect option from Roth and Tompkins.

  • What is CAbi you might ask???

A company with humble roots, a leadership team with integrity, and a vision to empower women.

From the moment CAbi was created, it was more than a brand.      springCAbibeach

  • From the moment CAbi was created, it was more than a brand.

As a little girl, Carol Anderson loved fashion, so she pursued her dream as a designer.  After working for a design firm, Carol teamed up with a good friend, who believed in her designs and took them to Nordstrom, where she became a beloved brand. She quickly garnered a loyal following in other department stores and boutiques across America.

The retail world began to change, and Carol felt a lack of creative freedom as stores expected a certain look from her label.

In 2001, Carol, her husband Jan and their friend, Kimberly Inskeep, sparked the idea of testing the concept of sharing the clothes with women in a home surrounded by friends, rather than in a traditional retail environment. Carol and Kimberly asked ten of their dear friends, who they knew would be passionate about this idea, to join them as Founders. This was the beginning of CAbi, Carol Anderson by invitation.

  • It’s not simply the outfit but the style you own.

Not just about the way you look, but how you feel. It’s not simply the outfit, but the style you own. It’s not only the compliment, but the conversation.

Ultimately, beyond great fashion, cabi is about the connection. From the moment cabi was created, it was more than a brand; it was a vision to bring inspiration, confidence, and a lasting sense of community to generations of women. Knowing our greatest days are ahead of us, our empowered network of friends has become a catalyst for the biggest evolution in women’s fashion. The true essence of cabi isn’t just about the clothing; it’s about the relationships we build—each encouraging us to discover our style and inspiring us to mix and match what we wear with the way we live. Cabi simply is … You. Inspired.

Designing a Room? Start with a Beautiful Fabric!

In a recent article at freshome Design & Architecture Magazine, our beliefs were confirmed regarding the basis for interior design in #6 of 10 Mistakes That (Almost) Everyone Makes in Interior Design.

#6: BUY FABRICS AND TEXTILES FIRST

“A common mistake that most of us are guilty of—painting first. Put that paint brush down! First, you need to pick out the rooms fabrics and main textiles, such as rugs and curtains.

Why is this? Because it is simply much easier to find fabrics that we love and then pick out paint to match. While it is much harder to find a fabric that we love, that also just so happens to match the paint we have already put on our walls.

So, with budget and room size in mind, go for a shopping excursion. Look through samples of fabrics, rugs, pillows etc… Find what you love and then once you are happy with your design choices, pick out a paint shade or shades from the chosen textiles. Now you can pick up the paint brush.”
