Kennett Square, PA (PRWEB) May 03, 2012
Interior designer Charlotte Moss, author of seven books on decorating and creating beautiful rooms, will be at Calico Home in Strafford, Pennsylvania for a special presentation and book signing on Wednesday, May 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. Moss will speak about "Rooms I Love and the People Who Made Them," touching on some of the great spaces and talented designers who have inspired her own signature style.
In addition, Moss will share stories about the work she did to create a new collection of decorative fabrics and trims, all available at retail at the Calico Corners – Calico Home stores across the country and online at http://www.calicocorners.com. Many of the 92 fabrics in the Charlotte Moss collection are inspired by antique textile documents and vintage clothing picked up on her travels. Other patterns are drawn from nature or adapted from motifs that she uses frequently in her residential design work. In creating such a large collection, Moss "wanted to inspire the customer to create her own vision—her look—with enough fabric choices to do it easily and stylishly."
After her presentation at Calico, Moss will sign her most recent book, Charlotte Moss Decorates. Making a home is always a challenge, notes Moss—especially after some years in a house. Furnishings fade. Colors look tired. Patterns that appealed at the time can seem dated ten years later. "Just as the new kid on the block brings energy to the neighborhood, so do new objects in a room. Change is essential to vitality in design," she states. "And spring reawakens the nesting instinct in us all."
