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.

Triana House

As much as I enjoy writing articles about beautiful and well-designed hotels from all over the world, there’s nothing better for me than sharing with my readers the wonders of my country, Spain.

Sevilla is a great city to visit, full of culture and incredible places to discover. If you are wondering where to stay for your next visit, you should consider Triana House, a charming boutique hotel designed by the talented Amaro Sanchez de Moya.

Located in the ‘Triana’ neighbourhood, this exquisite B&B is just steps away from the Cathedral and Torre del Oro.

All the details are exceptional but I especially love the tiled headboards, I think it’s such a clever idea, the visual effect is so powerful and fits perfectly in a city like Sevilla.

The intimate scale of the hotel – with five rooms and a suite with private terrace – makes for an experience of guaranteed comfort.

Blue, white and yellow

We all know that the classic ‘Blue & White’ combination is difficult to beat but sometimes adding another colour makes things even better. Brazilian interior designer Jorge Elias used yellow alongside the famous colour combo to create the perfect summer house.
