Dear Genevieve,

Dear Genevieve, 
Congrats on your new line for Capel Rugs! We are big fans (I'm sure you couldn't tell because we were so cool and collected).  We were so enamored with your new collection of rugs that we chose some for the mountain project. When we were milling around the Capel showroom (for hours), it was because we were looking at the rugs and were just trying to make up our minds. It had nothing to do with the fact that we just wanted our picture taken with you.

So glad you loved my Missoni (for Target) work bag. It made it so worth it (that I knocked that girl out to get it) when you complimented me and said you wished you could have gotten one. I would have given you mine (on the spot) if it wouldn't have seemed just a little weird and stalker-ish. Ann almost took her shirt off when you said you liked it and it reminded you of your fab rugs. So glad she didn't, may have been a tad inappropriate. 


You were truly lovely and so down to Earth and make me want to be a better designer (and taller and prettier). 
 Ok, back to work... the new collection is fresh and fun and a refreshing take on chevrons and ikats. We love the colors and can't wait to use them in some of our spaces. 
Thanks for your inspiration and style. We love you the new line!  
XOXO

You guys are so cute!!! I LOVE her new line too. I wandered around the Capel showroom wayyyy too long when she was in there, but sadly never had the chance to talk to her!

Wow! How fun. I actually wrote to Dear Genevieve to come make over our kitchen/family room. But sadly, I never heard from her. The rugs are really fabulous too!
