Here in Chicago I am dreaming of springtime...

I am spring cleaning already—I'm ready for a new season, a fresh start, planting outdoor gardens and following through on exterior home projects. But until weather does actually permit, I’m placing fresh flowers around my house and thinking about all products floral.

For those who are just not into florals, and I do respect readers' opinions about them, as well as my male clients who have vehemently expressed their wish to avoid anything that even slightly resembled a bud, there are some more masculine interpretations of floral designs. One company, Mod Green Pod offers a fabric called "Crave." It’s actually a very modern, non-frilly, abstract type of pattern. Shown here in a gray, cream and black colorway, it can create interest when intermixed into an eclectic room setting.
