Happy Fall y'all! I know it's technically been Fall for a few weeks but here in Houston we haven't felt it until now.
So, I'm really awful about sitting down in front of a computer for any amount of time when I'm not at my "real job" but I'm trying to get better. Welcome to my first official blog post! I appreciate you reading!
Summer and I have had a busy couple of months. I took a two week long buying trip/vacation to Turkey and Greece. Summer just returned from a long weekend at High Point Market, looking for inspiration and to make purchases for her full time job at Vieux Interiors.
It was my first time to both of those countries and I'm dying to return. My favorite city was Istanbul - it blew my mind! It’s full of so much history, incredible food, people and of course, TEXTILES! Since we're new to the pillow biz, I was mostly there to make connections, look around and make a few small purchases. I found an awesome fabric guy whose family has been in the business for years and they also make beautiful rugs.
The city inspired me like no other and I highly recommend going if you haven't yet...and once they lift the travel ban :-/ If you are thinking about a trip let me know and I'll connect you with our tour guide. She was awesome AND is a 7th generation Istanbulite so she knows the city in and out.
This is the view from our hotel in the Old City. That’s the Blue Mosque and Bosphorus River.
Dinner view from Mikla.
So many choices!
We haven’t had a chance to add these three to the website so if you’d like more info send us an email!
I’ll sign off for now! Check back in a few days for my recap on Greece.
