Print & Patterned Walls...

More often we love our neutral colour schemes with a splash of colour here and there, and the influence of trends & fashion, we can sometimes be afraid to use pattern & print more liberally through our homes & commercial spaces - and often it is down to the execution and bravado! I fell in love with these rich print patterns used in various colour palettes that create a striking presence in the space... Where sometimes less is more, and more is more! I am torn between the top image the bedroom of Beth Buccini and the 2nd from top image of The Palm Beach, Florida, dining room of Simon Doonan!
So now the question.. Will you give that print you've been looking over a 2nd chance now?
For the bedroom of Beth Buccini, a cofounder of fashion boutique Kirna Zabête, interior designer Carl D’Aquino combined two 19th-century gilt-wood headboards and upholstered them in a thickly patterned floral fabric. Behind the bed is a hanging made of a leafy textile by Clarence House.

Style icon Lee Radziwill wrapped her cozy New York City library in an Indian-themed fabric by Le Manach printed with brilliant pink lilies and exotic foliage. The English églomisé table lamp has a floral motif too. Photographer: Eric Boman

Michael S. Smith chose a hemp fabric splashed with earth-red poppies for the curtains of his Bel Air, California, breakfast room. The gentle folds tone down the bold Moghul-inspired print—it is from Smith’s own Jasper collection—ensuring it doesn’t overpower the space. Photographer: Simon Upton
