New Products from Bella Caronia and The Spring Bloom Windham Blog Hop

Artist Amanda with Diamond Pillow in Spring Bloom

Artist Amanda Caronia, founder of the design brand Bella Caronia, creates art for a variety of products in the home, gift and apparel industries. She had such a great response to her hand drawn and painted style at Surtex last May, she is back with us to share some of her new work and debuting products.

Amanda has been busy this year introducing her first fabric line, Spring Bloom, with Windham Fabrics that can be found in stores this month. She writes, “The most rewarding thing about designing for fabric is seeing all the beautiful things people make with your fabric.” The Spring Bloom Windham Blog Hop featuring some of these makers’ projects can be found here (see the full schedule below for more details.*)

Amanda’s Kahopo porcelain collection for Paper Products Design (shown left) also debuted at this year’s Atlanta Gift Show, and her Crush line of home office products is now available from Colorful Images.

Amanda escapes to the beaches around her home in Los Angeles for inspiration and spends most days in her studio drawing, painting and planning future projects. She has partnered with art licensing agent Deb Eiseman to build the Bella Caronia brand and collaborates with her talented husband Peter Caronia on all product photography. Stay tuned for more exciting announcements from Bella Caronia in 2015!
