Hand blocked prints are huge right now. From interiors to caftans, the prints have made their mark. I can't get enough of them. I am loving Rikshaw Design, started by the super talented Catherine Fitzsimmons of San Francisco. Her boho chic aesthetic and experience at Ralph Lauren as a visual merchandiser and as a textile buyer at Pottery Barn gave her the eye to launch a new venture. In 2008, she followed her instincts and travel inspirations, and started a baby bedding and accessories company with an ethnic twist. This spring, kids rooms and guest rooms will now be reminiscent of travel in exotic lands. By tweaking classic patterns, printing them in turquoise, green and hot pink brights, and creating contemporary designs, she has carved out a unique niche. Printed on cotton voile, the fabrics get softer over time.

Baby shower gift alert! A Camel Pillow. Insanely cute.

An adorable Taj paisley print elephant pillow. The trunk is turned upward so it is all good.

Paisley and flowers work with one another in the Bombay blue and green twin bedding.

Jaipur, an all- over floral in pink and pale green has a a wide and narrow stripe on the reverse.

Lali in pink and melon has a large and small floral. You can never have too many flowers.

Bring the jungle to you! Taj has elephants and monkeys in a pale pink and white pattern.

Taj Duvets have a small paisley on one side and elephants on the other with brightly colored borders. Hello spring bedding.

Taj Boudoir Pillows with little monkeys all in a row.
