The King And I

 This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the beautiful performance of the "King And I" at Lincoln Center. It was wonderful! I have loved this show since watching Yul Brenner and Deborah Kerr as a child.  I must admit I teared up like a baby at certain songs and the ending.   Of course I also marveled at the set design and the use of Thai fabrics and colors that are rich in depth and history.
I adore Thai silks, Buddha statues and stencils.  The one design company that I find has amazing Thai influenced fabrics is none other than Jim Thompson.  I have used several of these fabrics in my latest project and after seeing this play I long to use them even more! Check out some of these wonderful ways to bring a little King and I into your home. If you haven't seen the play yet run don't walk while Kelly Ohara remains the lead. Tickets HERE!

My favorite song "Something Wonderful" done by Lea Salong

Kelly Ohara was amazing and just look at this dress and the stenciled back round set!

I found this wonderful Site on Etsy for Thai "Siam" art!

Of course Jim Thompson Fabric is rich in Thai Influence!

    How wonderful that you saw The King And I. I can just imagine how amazing it was. I miss living in NY:( Austin is lacking a bit in the Performing Arts.
