Dear retailers and “to the trade” showrooms,
I have one, and only one, request of you this year. Please make available more icy blue fabrics, wallpapers, paints, and trims. You have done a great job of providing us designers with lots of blue-greens and gray-greens, but there seems to be a shortage in the gray-blue department.
Now I know this is a very specific colourway and it hasn’t spread like wildfire yet (like the turquoise has). I also realize it is my fault for selecting something more forthcoming, but I beg of you, please save me from a shortage of fabric options to present my clients, and also save those clients from having to purchase these ridiculously expensive fabrics that I present, just to be able to use this rare shade of blue.
And Target, if you are listening, please start carrying this icy blue hue too- because we all know, that once it trickles down to you, it’s just about everywhere else.
Sincerely (and desperately)
If you, like me, are looking for this rare hue, here is a list of fabrics that have helped me push through the icy blue famine-
