2016 Bucks County Designer House Bedroom: The Fabrics of Stout Textiles

I’m so excited to share the next steps in designing my 2016 Bucks County Designer House bedroom with you today!  You might remember last time we discussed what to actually do with fabrics in this bedroom project. Today, I want to discuss my wonderful fabric supplier: Stout Textiles.

Stout Textiles is a ‘trade only’ fabric company, which means their fabrics are only sold wholesale to designers, architects and retail stores. This is a family business: the company was started in 1927 by Harry and Charles Stout. Their father had also been in the textile business as a partner in a high-end print house that still exists. Today, the Company sells textiles and trimmings sourced from all over the world and many styles and designs are exclusive to Stout.

Stout Textiles is one of my favorite fabrics. I love them, not only for their selection of sumptuous textiles and amazing trims, but because they are a local vendor. Stout Textiles is located in Colmar, PA in Montgomery County, just at the border of Bucks County.

Stout Textiles’ luxury fabrics fit right into the style of work that I do, and I happily use their products all the time, including their gorgeous line of trims, which is exquisite. One of my favorite things about this company is that it’s still in family hands with four members of the fourth generation now actively involved in the business. How cool is that?

Grace Rumer, of Grace Irene Window Fashions, and I are active participants in our WCAA (Window Coverings Association of America) group. Here's a photo of Grace at one of our chapter meetings which was held at Stout Textiles last spring. What's amazing, is that Grace, who is providing all the custom bedding and drapery labor for my 2016 Bucks County Designer House Bedroom, is holding the very trim that I chose to feature in my room's design!

What’s amazing about this photo, is that Grace, who is providing all the custom bedding and drapery labor for my 2016 Bucks County Designer House Bedroom, is holding up the very trim which I’ve chose to feature in my room’s design!  It’s a gorgeous, wide teal jacquard tape featuring an ivory paisley detail.

I’m so fortunate that Stout Textiles has agreed to partner with me in providing ALL of the gorgeous fabrics and trim for my 2016 Bucks County Designer House bedroom! I definitely could not create such a beautiful, luxurious room design without their help. Fabrics are one of the most impactful elements in a bedroom, and the sumptuous look I’m going for in this space requires a large quantity of luxury textiles.  The Stout fabrics featured will have a huge impact in this Bucks County Designer House bedroom, and I am very grateful for the great relationship I have with this wonderful supplier!

Stout Textiles requested that I use fabrics from their upcoming, not yet released, line of fabrics. This way, photography from my 2016 Bucks County Designer House bedroom can be used in the Stout Textiles marketing campaign for their new line of fabrics.  How exciting for both Robinson Interiors AND Stout Textiles.  These are the fabrics which are just now in the process of being made into sample books and prepared for sale to the design trade.  It’s exhilarating that I get first pick from this exclusive new line of textiles!

This is Mark Rickers, one of the amazing fabric designers at Stout Textiles. Mark helped me select my beautiful 2016 Bucks County Designer House Bedroom fabrics from Stout Textile's upcoming fabric line.

This is Mark Rickers, one of the three partners at Stout Textiles and head of the design department,  who personally helped me select my beautiful 2016 Bucks County Designer House Bedroom fabrics from the upcoming fabric line.  I recently visited the ‘design room’ at Stout Textiles, and was able to leaf through the binders of the newest fabrics to be added to their inventory.

Stout Textiles has a terrific blog, called ‘Design Threads’.  The blog has a tour of the Stout facilities which is very informative.  This is such a friendly company with superb customer service and stunning products!  You can check out Stout’s blog by clicking here: http://www.estout.com/designthreads/archive/A_Peek_Inside-06_15-The_Stout_Tour_Design_Center.asp

When I visited Stout Textiles to make my fabric selections, I knew exactly the style I was going for.  I wanted this bedroom space to be designed for a young lady.  I definitely want it to be soothing and feminine.  In my mind I was thinking of using seafoam-blue and ivory.  Armed with that idea in my head, it was so easy to select patterns in the beautiful color scheme and aesthetic I was envisioning for my 2016 Bucks County Designer House bedroom.

Here a small cuttings of the Stout Fabrics I'm planning to use in my 2016 Bucks County Designer House bedroom. At the center is a magnificent floral with a seafoam blue background, darker teal leaves and soft petal pink with bold coral accents. I'm only planning to use this particular fabric in small amounts, but it will be the glue that unifies the whole space. It's the inspiration for the color palette in my bedroom.

I’ll be sharing more about the design of my 2016 Bucks County Designer House bedroom here on Kristine Robinson’s Interiors in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.  I’ll tell you where each of these fabrics is being used, and will give you some real-time updates of my progress in the space.  There’s so much to do!! Now that I’ve finalized some fabrics, I can think about selecting the paint colors for the bedroom. Until then, feel free to share my posts and images with your friends on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and other social media. I absolutely adore making new friends!
