Working With Pattern

ann wallace

Mixing patterns can be challenging and fabric companies have a lively business manufacturing coordinated colorways for home decorating, quilting and other projects, all made to take the fear out of what is actually one of the most fun projects. Pre-designed fabric collections always look matchy-matchy to me.

What a pleasure it was then to work this summer with a client to add stencilled curtains to a breathtaking restoration project using lots of dark wood and Bradbury and Bradbury wallpapers. These papers have the kind of dense early Arts & Crafts patterns that often instill a total fear of additional pattern but this client had very sophisticated taste and inspired the whole studio with her interesting choices. Plain curtains or shades would have been fine but the rooms now have an extra wow!
