As much as I love exploring new places, I have come to terms with the fact that I am and will always be a homebody at heart. There is just something about the comfort of coming home and changing into comfy clothes, curling up in a worn chair and reading a favorite book that can’t be topped. When I was designing this collection I kept coming back to that feeling and hoped I could make Dwell feel a little like coming home. The beautiful florals in navy and green paired with perfect shades of pink and gray remind me of my favorite chair in my childhood home while the classic ticking stripe and coordinating basics include some elements from my current home. Marvin J Ashton put it best when he said “Home should be an anchor, a port in a storm, a refuge, a happy place in which to dwell, a place where we are loved and where we can love.” I hope the quilts and projects you make with this collection will always remind you, wherever you may be, of home.
