Summer’s sweltering right along and you may be hankering to spiff up your porch or sunroom without breaking the bank. Laurette Kittle has cooked up a line of fun summer fabrics that might be just the thing. Slipcover a sofa or or whip up a pillow or two and see if that doesn’t splash a little summer sunshine just where you want it.

Looka here who else thinks Laurette’s fabrics are fun and fresh. Miss Katie Couric that’s who.

Laurette and Katie are buds. We are all buds. Katie and I were sorority sisters at U.Va. together. And yes she is just as cute and fun and smart and friendly as she seems. She really is.

So is Laurette for that matter, though not quite as famous. Yet.

Laurette has an impressive history in the design biz, working her magic on everything from festive paper products to snappy prints for George Smith. She  is as sunny and bright as her fabrics. (And her hair!) Just seeing them makes me think of her and her good energy, and having them in my house reminds me of that.

Produced by PKLifestyles,  the line is called “Vacation at Home” and the patterns are inspired from Laurette’s travels. “The mosaic pattern is from my trip last year to Marrakesh and Diver’s Paradise from our family dive trips to Bonaire,” she says.

This zebra-like pattern is Reef. It's my favorite and would be so versatile.
