Kathleen Gretz is a textile and decorative arts designer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her line of fabrics reflects a bold and vibrant California lifestyle - classic motifs in a fresh, modern, livable style. La Selva Studio is named for her home-away-from-home La Selva Beach, CA.
WHAT I DO
La Selva Studio is my trade only textile design company. I create graphically beautiful patterns that can be customized for your one-of-a-kind projects.
WHO IT'S FOR
Designers who need a stunning fabric with the perfect color, scale and texture. And clients who want something fresh and unique, something no one else has.
WHY IT'S SPECIAL
Did you ever love a pattern but wished it was in a different color, or on a different ground, or bigger, or smaller? Maybe you wanted it to match a wall color. My fabrics can do all of these things. And it's easy!
LIKE THEM AS IS?
Fantastic! I print most designs in 4 color ways. So that's even easier! Want to change it up? Read on!
HOW IT WORKS
Choose a pattern or a collection - new collections are added each Spring and Fall.
Choose a ground - I print on four grounds, each with a luxurious feel.
Choose your colorway - Use our standard colors, Studio Essentials Palette or match to Pantone colors or Benjamin Moore paint colors.
Choose your scale - Big, small, all our patterns are scalable.
Choose a direction - Patterns are created up the bolt, but need it railroaded? No problem!
Request your digital proof - I'll email you a PDF file to review your design.
Order your yardage - And then make something amazing!
WHAT TO DO NEXT
Get a sample! If you are a designer in the Bay Area visit a local showroom to see the line. If you are outside the area, email me with a swatch request and any questions you may have. I'm here to help you create!
A LITTLE MORE ABOUT KATHLEEN
I'm an artist. I'm wired to find the shape, outline, whitespace, contrast and essence of everything I see. That's why graphic design was my first love, and interior design my second. I've been drawing since I was a kid, became an avid and passionate digital artist early on in Apple history, and most recently, designed interiors for terrific clients. Along the way I discovered that I could create my own fabric designs, bringing together my Mac and my love of linen. With a technical understanding of how to produce a printable design and the designer's vision to know how it will translate to interior spaces, La Selva Studio brings together both talents beautifully. And now I'm sharing my designs with you!
