galbraith & paul





so i have a routine every morning- wake up, get the kid, put her in bed w/ me, she drinks her milk, make coffee, fix me and kid breakfast, unload the dishwasher, play and read some books to kid, put kid down for a nap- this is in about a two hr span of time. then i have one hour of "me" time until kid gets up...this is when i sit in front of the computer and drink my 2nd cup of coffee and blog (if i get around to it- i have been a little slack this summer), check my email, and shower.
so today, i have spent my entire 2nd cup of coffee on the galbraith and paul website. these fabrics/ lights/ pillows have been around for a while. i have a lot of the fabrics in my library and admire the detail that they put into each hand blocked pattern. but it wasn't until this morning that i caught a glimpse of how they are really made. it is such a beautiful process and makes me appreciate the fabric that much more. if you have a second or are like me and drinking your cup of coffee, check out the detail that these craftsmen put into making their products. maybe the next time i try to sell one of my clients on the fabric, i will refer them to the website so they can get a better understanding of why they have to take out a small loan in order to afford them!! have a wonderful weekend!

I have two Galbraith and Paul pillows on my family room sofas. I had been coveting them for years at Room & Board and when the ones I loved most went on sale last year, I snatched them up immediately. They are *incredible* and I love them!

Oh how well I know this routine! I don't blame you for spending your precious "alone" time on this website. G and P are worth it.

Love these!

The second pic is my favorite... reminds me of sand dollars and who doesn't like to be reminded of the beach!?

Hello,

I am a fashion design student at the University of Cincinnati. I am highly interested in Galbraith and Paul. You mentioned in your blog that you saw the technique that they used, and I was wondering if you could share that sight with me if you have it! Thank you!
