As I previously mentioned, my professional background includes putting together bedding collections. In fact, long before I joined Sis Boom, I was using Jennifer’s lines to make duvets, sheet sets, dust ruffles, upholstered headboards, toss pillows, curtains and more! While my mind automatically sees a large scale floral and thinks “duvet,” you guys turn the same exact print into the most beautiful clothing, quilts, aprons, shower curtains, etc. I have ever seen! I am CONSTANTLY blown away by your creativity. Since you have been so gracious in sharing your creations with us, I’d thought I’d share with you how my mind views a brand new Jennifer Paganelli collection. And speaking of brand new, I will be using fabrics that can be found in her upcoming “Good Company” line to be released in November 2014.
Reverse of Duvet/Dust Ruffle Options:
Another great suggestion is using a large bold pattern for an upholstered headboard like these:
and use a combination of solid colors found in the print as your duvet!
An upholstered headboard can be found in Happy Home by Jennifer Paganelli!
Keep your creations coming! We love seeing them!!
Hello fellow Sis Boom admirers! My name is Lisa and I am the newest addition to Team Sis Boom! From here on out one of my many tasks here will be to serve as your Style Maven! We’ll talk about the latest trends in fashion, fabrics, furniture and many more things that don’t necessarily start with an “F”. Before we get to that, here’s a little bit about me: I grew up in Connecticut with a fierce passion for design. While I studied creative writing my background includes running a children’s shop, bedding design, interior design, visual merchandising and being a pretty awesome Aunt to 4 little girls and 1 little man. In 2008 I caught a glimpse of my very fist Sis Boom design (in the collection “Bell Bottoms”) and instantly became a fan! To quote my brand new Twitter account (www.twitter.com/lbeesa) I’m a “lover of laughter, textiles, elephants, pineapples, triangles, the beatles and much, much more!” I am thrilled to be working side by side with Jennifer and Co. and cannot wait to meet and speak with each and every one of you!
For my first post I’ve decided to let my OCD get the best of me and bring something to your attention….Have you noticed that the dots featured in JennyEliza on the JoAnn Fabrics website look enormous?!? I promise you they are not! The image shown is a highly pixelated version! I want you guys to know exactly what you’re getting so below please take a look the ACTUAL scale of the dots featured on our lovely Sophie. I’ve included the pixelated version as well for your viewing pleasure. PHEW! I feel better getting that off my chest!

Christy Bennett had an idea a year ago and after lots of consideration she has launched what I deem to be the next best thing from this world. Are you ready??? Pre-made, lined, drapes!!!! I just think this is an idea that will be a huge hit!! I am over the moon excited. Once they find Darling Drapery they’ll just have to deal with which ones to get!!!! So many possibilities and she makes it affordable!!! Christy I think you are on the tipping point of something big and I know it is going to take off!!! throw drapes up and have a party!!!! Match some pillows and you are good to go. Congrats Christy!!So get over to Etsy and take a look at her collection. I know you will love what you see….which room will you tackle first?
