Andover designer Mo Bedell got hoots and hollers when it was announced that she won Best New Exhibitor at the show. Full Moon Lagoon, Mo’s first collection with Andover, takes you to that happy place on the beach where you frolic alongside of seahorses and jellyfish and breathe in the smell of fresh flowers and sea foliage. She plays with fresh colors combos including citrine and aqua, eggplant and fuchsia, and offers a range of scale in her prints, including a 23” cheater panel. Bubble Beads, which comes in five colors, is destined to become a classic. Full Moon Lagoon is available now.
