what's next? with the Neo-Trad

who doesn't know and love kate and her blog, the Neo-Traditionalist? i told her that we are like the 'pen-pals" from the movie julia and julie..never met.. but adore eachother and give eachother encouragement and advice all the time..she is my little sister and her pug is jumby's boyfriend. here are her suggestions:

Okay love, this is what I envision as your next big step---a fully developed collection of home accessories. The Rikshaw Design home collection would include a little bit of everything you've ever wanted for your abode: throw pillows, throws, lampshades, window treatments, shower curtains, tablecloths, place mats, napkins, etc. You could even start selling fabric by the yard to the trade. You would use your already developed cotton voile patterns and simply accessorize them with brightly colored trims (pom poms, grosgrain, etc.), ruffles, hemstitched details, beading, the possibilities are endless! Attached is a collage for a bit on inspiration. I think you could easily take items like these and re-work them to reflect the Rikshaw boho-chic aesthetic! May I help?? XOXOXO

i totally agree we need a full rikshaw home line- fabrics to the trade PLEASE!

also, what about being in touch with serena + lily and seeing if they want to add your fabrics to their options for upholstered headboards, etc?
