Empress of the Eye Giveaway!



Empress of the Eye



I am so excited to announce our new Giveaway from Jane Schott, The Empress of the Eye. She has offered a pillow from The Forest Fables Collection in either Black and White, or Fuschia and White. This Fabulous Down Filled Pillow has a $200.00 Value and the Giveaway is open to anyone, anywhere!




Our interview is below. I think you will find it fascinating.

1) Be or become a Follower of Art by Karena

2) Visit The Empress of the Eye Pillow Collection on Facebook.
Or visit Empress of the Eye blog an look through her pillows in the side bar

3) Come back and comment on which pillow you love the most!

The Giveaway will end at Midnight Friday November 19th CST and be announced on Saturday November 20th!

K: What inspired you to get in the business of interior design?

J: My mother, whom, when I was a child, always seemed like an embarrassment to me. Too much style and very flamboyant in dress and home design from my friends’ mothers. I did not realize until much later how she influenced me. Every summer, when I went off to camp, I would come home to a newly designed bedroom. It was always done so differently from my girlfriends’ bedrooms.
I would quake when she came to the PTA meetings in capes and big fur hats!
I studied art throughout school, and always seemed to live in run-down rentals that needed to be fluffed up. This is where I really began to experiment with interior design.



I also had a generous dose of artistically gifted friends who were in various fields in New York City that opened my eyes to color, lighting, furniture spacing, visual design and historical elements. The museums, fashions, the architecture...it was such an amazing place to get a design education.



K: How did the collecting of unique fabrics begin?

J: I was always attracted to fabrics. When I was young, my mother (it all seems to keep coming back to my mother doesn’t it!?) had huge trunks filled with gowns that were made of amazing fabrics that we could play “dress up” in. In particular, I remember being so enthralled by a dark blue taffeta dress that had a beautiful velvet ribbon tie belt.

Living in Europe I learned what a well-made bed was...the sheets fell just right because of their weight, colors were so different, the embroidery and monograms breathtaking and goose down comforters. That’s when fabrics started really “talking” to me.

K: Tell me about your assortment of fine collectibles if you have more than pillows.

J: There is the danger that once I buy more than one of something I love, it can lead to a collection. Over the years, various collections have ebbed and flowed, but the mainstays have been books (I’ve always collected books), tartan ware is a favorite, antique trims, one-of-a-kind costumes and I am always on the hunt for ecclesiastical embellishments (yes, I’m bound to be damned for all time.) I love finding oddities, such as glass eyeballs and famous writers Funeral Cards. I am always on the lookout for Victorian bamboo and paisleys.



K: When did you open Grass Harp Interiors?
J: I opened The Grass Harp Antiques and Design Shop in Stone Ridge, New York in the early 90’s. There was such a wealth of good pickings in that part of the country that I always had interesting goods and jobs from clients from the city who had country houses. It was such a fantastic experience. I wanted to name my business after a favorite story by Truman Capote, and I couldn’t very well call it “In Cold Blood Antiques.”

K: Do you have a certain area of expertise in design?

J: I really enjoy working the colors for interiors. I can remember a paint color from 15 years ago, but can’t remember where I parked my car. Paint is such an exhilarating part of interior design. In particular working with light and transitions from room to room – that’s often the hardest decision for a client to make – where does one room/color and another begin.

K: Have you made the fabrics into hanging tapestries,etc, and I did see a chair
covered in the Forest Fables.
J: Many clients have come to me with a fabric or I have found a special piece for them, and I have made wall hangings, fabric screens and throws. Everyone needs a one-of-akind chair for some corner of their home. Partnering a unique fabric with the right style furniture piece is always exciting. It can set an interior apart.

K: Tell me about The Forest Fables Collection:

J: I found the Otomi Indian embroidered fabric in the small village of Tenango de Doria in Hidalgo in the Sierra Madre Mountains, Mexico. I loved the traditional multi colored weaving, but I requested all one color for this collection. Each piece is hand made by the women of the villages and they use no patterns or even draw a design on the fabric.

Each animal, fauna and insect comes from their imagination. No two are alike and I never get tired of looking at them. I have made throws, table cloths for restaurants, bed headboards and pillows in every size and shape. The embroidery is done so well that you can turn the covers inside out and wash them. These pillows have a hidden zipper, small piping and down inserts.

Jane, Thank you so much for the excellent interview and Giveaway!

Great pillows and such a varied selection which is always nice. I especially like the feedsack pillows and the victorian monogram. I have a modern house but the vintagy feel of those is so lovely.

French Basketeer.com said...

I love all of them! The needlepoint and Aubusson pillows are fantastic, but I would choose the black & white Forest Fables pillow....I've just posted a pretty basket for the Online Auction for Valorie that I think you will like!

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

Oh, my goodness! I've never seen so many beautiful pillows all in one place before! I really love the vintage needlepoint pillows and the feedsack pillows.

I'd probably choose the black over the fuscia.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

I visited her blog as instructed (I don't do facebook), and I looked through all of the pillows AND LOVED THEM ALL!

xo,

The Quintessential Magpie said...

I love the pink Scalmandre pillows, and I saw several aubussons that sent me over the moon. AND I love the needlepoint dog pillow. How on earth can you just pick one when they are all wonderful?

Okay, and if I were to choose between the two colors of the pillow for the giveaway, I would choose the fushia. I love the black and white, but I think fuschia is the color for a Floridian.

Thanks to you and Jane both for this giveaway!

And I loved your interview. She is just wonderful. I somehow found her pillows once before, and then I lost the link. Glad I found it again!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Elizabeth said...

Great Interview! I relate to the stylish, flamboyant mother not blending in with all the other mothers! Your choice of handmade embroidered fabric by the Otomi Indian women was such a gift to both them and all of us. I have to say it was extremely hard to decide which of your pillow designs is my favorite of the Forest Fables Collection-I'd have to say any one of them! Your pillow with the Empress of The Eye Symbol is unbelievable. All of your designs are truly creative!

Blue Creek Home said...

Great interview and all of her pillows are to die for!

I'm lovin' the Aubusson Collection and the Victorian Monogram. Sorry,

Beautiful giveaway- forest fable in pink is my favourite:)

A Casa da Vá said...

that is great that you not only showcased her work but also explained about the history behind it all. Love the fact they are hand made in lit villages - that is so special! I love the forest fables with the animals that came form the imagination of those ladies... all the colors are great but maybe the pink or red would be my favorite!

Capella Kincheloe Interior Design said...

I think I would go with the silk tiger stripe pillows! Scalamandre, I think?

These are great! I'd go for the black and white Forest Fables.

Wendy said...

i like the european feed sac with W & B on it -- initials of both my husband and I :)

Lisa Kennedy said...

I love In The Good Old Summertime pillow because I imagine that is the view people have of me as I walk past them. For a beautiful pillow I adore the Mexican embroidery blue birds pillow. The forest fables pillows are simply wonderful. I have an affinity for salmon and coral colors and I felt a kindred spirit with those beautiful pillows.

Anonymous said...

The fuchsia. No-o-o, the black Otomi. The fuchsia. Yes, the fuchsia! Hard to pick just one favorite.

Kate Coveny Hood said...

Yeah! I didn't miss the deadline. I opened this on my iphone last week (hate commenting on that) and completely forgot to come back later. Beautiful pillows - fingers crossed...

The Black and White Forest Fables pillows are my favorite! They seem to jump right out of a child's bedtime story.
