Shopping on Larchmont Boulevard the other day, one of my favorite streets in L.A. for one-of-a-kind items and great cafes, I stopped by my friend’s salon, Marcie Bronkar’s Home Couture, to check out her great holiday window display.
Marcie is a very talented textile designer, and a seasoned veteran of both the fashion and home-furnishings industries, and happily, somewhat of a mentor to me. Her new salon is not only exquisitely put together, but offers her Home Couture line of fabrics for the first time outside of Quadrille (a to-the-trade showroom), as well as her new ultra-luxe, Cloth & Paper fabric and wallpaper collection.
You know it’s good when I was coveting the drapery in this fabulous room from Elle Decor (Nov. 2010), only to find out the curtains are made from Marcie’s Home Couture “Gypsy Dance” fabric! What are the odds? Her luxurious-yet-modern take on paisley, so perfectly designed for draperies, places the pattern at the top and bottom of the windows. And notice how the same print gracefully winds up on the bottom of the over-sized arm chair. It’s brilliant. And of course, it’s hers.
And if dressing your room in luxurious fabrics, like her Shelter Cloth available in 13 colors, isn’t enough, she makes totes and jackets as well. Just in time for the holidays.
