A Match Made in Heaven

Happy Friday, friends! It’s been a fun week in our little prairie town, the temps are cooling, summer is slowly fading away and we’re enjoying quieter days, stretching time. Also, next week we start kindergarten and we’re still trying to figure it all out, wondering how did this happen?! (So not ready, lol!!!)

One of this week’s highlights, design-wise, was the launch of Schumacher’s latest fabric collection – a collaboration with the fashion world powerhouse – Vogue! Fashion and interiors have forever been organically connected, a passion for one usually accompanies the love for the other so it’s no wonder this collection is absolutely beautiful…

Developed by Dara Caponigro, Schumacher’s Creative Director and her team, along with Hamish Bowles – Vogue’s International Editor at Large, this collection is unique in that it is inspired by some of the most iconic fashion and design tastemakers of the century – Rachel (Bunny) Mellon, Gloria and Mariga Guiness, Horst P. Horst, Cecil Beaton, Nancy Slim Keith, Millicent Rogers, Mona von Bismarck, Pauline de Rothschild, Talitha Getty to name just a few. Each of the 17 designs is available in two to four color ways, fabric and wallpaper and I can’t wait to use these beauties in my projects!!!

’The storied textile house of Schumacher was founded in 1889 (Vogue followed soon after in 1892), and has a long history partnering with the fashion world that began with the legendary Paul Poiret in the 1920s. Many of the prints and weaves were researched in Schumacher’s extraordinary archive, while additional designs were developed from motifs in the work of Vogue ’s great Jazz Age illustrators. They were all selected to pay homage to some of the great tastemakers—many of whom need only their first names to identify them—and whose instincts for fashion, style, and interiors have shaped the look of  through the decades. The color stories, meanwhile, subtly reflect many of the best-loved interiors—ancient and modern—featured in Vogue through the years. They are evocative by turns of the chintzes or Tudor embroideries in romantic English country houses; the historic document prints in Provencal and Tuscan manses; the exotic textiles of a Moroccan riad; Celtic plaids; and the organic linen stripes and checks of a Long Island beach house.’’ – Vogue Living
