Fanciful Fabric...Soul Blossoms by Amy Butler

So if you follow us on Facebook. You may have noticed in the past we shared some of our favorite fabrics from Amy Butler, particularly from her "Love" Collection. Well just in time for Valentines day we are going to share some more of her gorgeous prints that are so bold, bright and happy! They make you feel just like being in love. You know that feeling of PASSION, BLISS and JOY! Well these are in fact the names of Amy's color stories from her new collection called "Soul Blossoms". This collection was inspired by her recent trip to India. Oh and how I love them. It is so Boho Chic. Watch out for these jewels, they may just end up on some of our pieces at our boutique, Quondam this Spring. Maybe a sweet chair, ottoman, apron, or handbag...Hmmm the wheels are turning! Stay tuned or better yet let us know what you would like to see!

Actually this post was inspired by one of our new followers on Twitter, LuxeInteriorDesign. I stopped by to visit her blog and saw this delicious post and wanted to share some of it. Stop by luxeinteriordesign's blog and follow her. She has some great post's. But in the mean time here are some teaser pics from her blog!

Quondam by Studio Six Eleven...WE ARE OPEN!!

Well just in time for the New Year Quondam boutique shop is now open for business! We are located in The Franklin Shops at 2200 First Street in Downtown River Districrt. We have been open for just one week and the foot traffic has been incredible. We love the vibe of downtown and could not be happier with our new home. Allison from The Franklin Shops is amazing and has worked so hard to bring her creation to life, HIGH FIVE to her and the gang! Our fellow shops mates are all so uber cool and we love sharing the space with them. Compass Interiors has gorgeous home decor with a coastal flair, Leather Conncection has the softest and most light weight leather goods. They even have accessories made from recycled leather, how eco-chic is that? There are some amazing unique jewlery shops as well. I can't wait to meet everyone and as soon as I do I will update the blog with some of their goodies! The store windows are available to rent out and there is even a special location for a Pop-up shop. The Fort Myers Film Fest has set up a cool display in the window next to us, they make great neighbors and our other neighbor is artist Leoma Lovegrove.We can't wait to see her gallery completed. She had the most amazing and delightful artwork. We are simply surrounded by lots of culture, color,  and community.This is definitley a unique shopping experience much needed in southwest florida and the downtown Fort Myers  river district. Please come down to the shops and support your local businesses.
Artwalk has been such a successful monthly event in the district. It is being held the first friday of every month and the shops will be open until 10pm during this event and others coming soon!

Hope to see you tomorrow in the meantime here are some snapshots of Quondam...more to come!
