Verrieres

‘Nothing dates faster than a printed fabric- unless of course, it’s one of those timeless prints that defy shifts in style’ Marylin Bethany – Interiors: What Works (New York Magazine, 1987)

The iconic ‘Verriéres’ fabric has been in the Brunsching & Fils line since 1960 (Known in  Europe as ‘Batik’ – Le Manach/Pierre Frey)  On today’s blog post I’m sharing some fabulous rooms where this timeless chintz makes all the difference.

Terracotta Pots

There’s something very appealing about the simplicity of terracotta pots. On today’s blog post I’m sharing with you some great examples on how to use them.
