With summer comes a slowing down. Longer days, warmer weather and vacation time on the horizon add up to a general change of pace. Switching gears is a good thing. Try to enjoy the fleeting days to come, and hopefully these turtles will aid in the promotion of a vacation state of mind.

When an interior designer with a flair for fabric and wallpaper design creates a new pattern that is this much fun, it is hard to resist sharing it. Known for her great sense of color and hand-drawn artistic designs, the new Katie Ridder Wallpaper pattern with a large sized sea turtle swimming is a transporting pattern. Here, a sneak peak of the soon to be released Sea Turtle Wallpaper in Blazer red, available through Holland and Sherry and Harbinger in LA. I hope an outdoor fabric in the pattern comes next, just think of the possibilities...
