‘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.
