If you’re not yet familiar with New York designer Allison Hennessy, I’m super excited to make the introduction–I’m positive we’ll be hearing a lot about her in the future! In fact, she was just selected as one of Traditional Home’s “New Trad 10” for 2012 (nominated by Stacey Bewkes of Quintessence.) Like the editors, I too love her fresh take on traditional design. Before starting her own firm, she worked for a lot of amazing designers, including two of my all-time favorites: Phoebe Howard and Meg Braff. And to top it all off, Allison is incredibly sweet! AND she has a blog called Manner of Style that you all must check out! I love these two rooms that she designed…awesome furniture of course, but the fab turquoise fabrics and fun patterns really bring it to life!

Ooh and speaking of Quadrille…did you guys know they have a new online outlet? New York Designer Fabric Outlet is the exclusive outlet for all the discontinued fabrics from Quadrille, China Seas, Alan Campbell, and Home Couture. We’re talking 75% off…available to everyone!! Rumor has it that there will be some really cool new arrivals in the next few days too! (And just so you know, I’m not getting paid to share this, I’m just a big fan of Quadrille!)
