Have Susan Albright create a toile that tells YOUR story. Do you have a special property that is your “happy place”? The patterns Susan creates can be used on many things: for example; pillows, bedding, tote bags, notecards, invitations, napkins, placemats, wallpaper, scarves and more!
The process begins with a phone call to discuss your ideas. Then a short letter is sent outlining the fees and timeline. Once terms are agreed upon, Susan meets with you at your happy place, if possible, asks questions to draw out your "story", listens intently and photographs things that catch her eye. She will provide you with a sample layout of the images she plans to include in your toile for your approval prior to beginning to draw. Then, she will provide you with a proof of your print for your review. Included in the price is one revision. If an in person meeting isn't possible, the details can be discussed on the phone and you can provide photographs of things that you would like included on your pattern.
Once the pattern is approved, Susan will provide a menu of items that the pattern can be used with and will email photos of products. If wallpaper or fabric are desired, samples will be provided for your review prior to orders being placed. She will handle the order and you will receive your items usually within 30 days of the order being placed. As an artist and interior designer, Susan is happy to suggest colors that work with the spaces you intend to use your family toile in or she can work with your designer in matching colors to a design scheme in process.
Susan will keep your pattern on file so you can add to your collection of Family Toile items if you choose. She will also let you know about any new products she is offering via email, if you wish.
